Three words: Thai is amazing.I started working out with Thai in November 2014 because I not only felt a lack of motivation towards working out, but also because I felt I hit a plateau. Prior to working out with him, I was relatively familiar with exercising since I had been an avid runner growing up and also had a background (albeit, limited) concerning weight training. However, I felt that my progression was not as efficient as it could have been given the amount of time I was spending at the gym. I remember looking on Yelp and flipping through the 13-something pages of trainers in Pasadena and I came across his page and site. After talking to him on the phone, I knew I had found what I was looking for in a trainer. For one, I wanted someone who was clearly knowledgeable and had a background training those who competed, rather than those who were looking to lose weight. I myself was looking to gain strength/ muscle mass and at the same time lean out at bit, having gained a little weight from earlier in the year due to irregular eating and exercising habits. Also, I wanted someone who was on the tougher side--after all, I was going to be contributing time and money towards a trainer and I wanted the best one for me. After going on a few trial training sessions with some other trainers and comparing them to Thai, I knew that I wanted to be trained by him.Let me say that if you are looking to be pushed physically and mentally, Thai is your guy. Granted, he is not anything like a drill sergeant and is definitely not in your face. He is very understanding, but at the same time, tough and will push you beyond what you think you do. This was exactly what I wanted. I didn't want to be babied because I was serious about reaching my goals and knew that he would get me where I wanted to be. I will point out that after working out with Thai for only a little over two months, I have made massive gains. I can squat and deadlift 185, bench way more than I was ever capable of, and I can run farther and longer than I have ever before (and this is coming from who transitioned from running 4-6 miles/day to only doing HIIT 2-3 times a week).I'll emphasize that if you are going to spend money on a trainer, you need to match in terms of philosophy and personality. For me, Thai is the perfect trainer for me because he is very charismatic, charming, and funny. I train 4-6x per week at 6 am (I am a full-time student and work weekends and this is the time that works for me), and honestly, I always look forward to the workouts because he makes sure I am never bored by changing up workouts. He is also very silly and fun to talk to. In terms of scheduling and pricing, he is also very accommodating and understanding. Being a graduate student with an erratic schedule and limited funds, we were able to negotiate a good time and fair price for the both of us.If you are serious about working out, you should consider Thai. I know I have no regrets and I intend to train with him indefinitely (that is, as long as he'll have me). If you are willing to put in the time and effort with him, I swear you won't be disappointed.

I met Thai at a training seminar he put on for a non-profit my wife works for. The dude has an infectious personality that spurs you to go kick some ass and get yourself in shape. Just listening to him talk fired me up to go hit the gym.Upon meeting him once I signed up for assistance with getting in shape for a 22 Mile, Stand Up Paddle Board Race I planned to do from Catalina Island to Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro. I was also getting married in 2 months and wanted to trim down for the big day.Thai built me a personal training regiment to prepare for my race and get yoked for my wedding. The personalized program came with diet instructions, supplements to buy, and a workout routine. Thai provided me with great results. I lost 15-20 lbs within 2 months and successfully completed my 22 mile Stand-Up-Race in my goal timing. Since then I have continued to meet with him weekly and am still seeing great results. I went from barely benching 135 lbs to pushing 225 lbs. I've cut fat and put on real muscle and am now the guy on the beach no one wants to mess with. Thai will give you confidence in your body and strength. He is your biggest fan and pushes you harder than you will EVER push yourself. On top of that, he is a good dude. As hard as his workouts are, he always keeps the challenges interesting and I always look forward to seeing him.I original was driving 1 hour to see him in Pasadena but now he has opened gyms in Manhattan Beach and Hollywood. If you are serious about getting in shape I could not recommend a better trainer. More...
I've trained with Thai for 3 months now. I was referred to Body Couture from a friend that saw great results. I drive for over an hour to get to Pasadena and it's been nothing short of amazing. I lost a good amount of weight before I started with Body Couture, but Thai has helped me tone my body in a whole new way. The workouts are intense and not for the faint of heart. Be prepared to sweat and to be sore. 90 minutes of non-stop heart pumping intense workout with great motivation and the right amount of push. My body has transformed and am looking forward to finally being able to proudly take my shirt off at the pool. If you are tired of working out and not seeing results and are ready to push yourself beyond your limits then set an appointment with Body Couture. You must be ready mentally. They will give you a nutrition plan and help you look good, its not all about health with Body Couture, its about looking your best. More...
I was looking for a trainer in the Pasadena area and had done some research for some time. Not only did I want a trainer who can help me with getting into great shape, I wanted someone who is skilled and knowledgeable of diet, food prep, exercises etc. Upon meeting Thai, he had all the qualities I was looking for. Not only is he a professional chef who can help with making meal plans taste good, he knew the ins and outs of the body and how to properly work the muscles needed to obtain the look I wanted. His prices are reasonable and his sessions are 1.5 hrs unlike many others. For that 1.5 hrs, he is pushing you to your limits and helping you meet your goals. He is definitely a no non-sense trainer with a great friendly attitude. I would definitely recommend him to others if you are serious about making a life change. More...
I was looking for a no-nonsense trainer who knows what he talks about & doesn't waste time. Thai was exactly that. As a trainer, he is tough & nurturing at the same time, and thorough in every way, before/during/after the session. He was quick to know what I wanted to learn from each session and achieve at the end. He was able to answer all my questions on training and nutrition. He is in great shape, which validates that 'he practices what he preaches'. More...
I am a wardrobe consultant in the LA area. One of my clients worked with Thai and I was amazed by her results! Body Couture is the place to go for REAL results! I can't wait to start my own transformation with Thai's help! More...
I am in the best shape of my adult life and weigh less than I did in college! Being an athlete all my life, I have never been a stranger to the gym. However no matter how hard I worked out on my own I just couldn't get over the hump. Body Couture provided a fitness plan including not just innovative workouts but a nutrition plan as well. Thai Edwards (owner) is super supportive and motivational all the time. He keeps me on my game, holds me accountable when I am not feeling it and always pushes me to go harder than the day before. And most importantly BODY COUTURE GETS RESULTS!!!!!!!! If you don't believe me....check out the pictures. They say more than I ever could! #teamBodyCouturePS...ladies you can be fit, muscular, strong and still SEXY! More...
