Fitness & Physical Therapy
"I have worked with Tara for 10 years, during which she has been consistently professional and beyond the call of duty as far as caring goes. There is no one in the medical profession I trust more. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient, intelligent and affable. I feel safe and optimistic if she is handling the treatment. I never feel that she diminishes in attention. I cannot say enough good things about her!"
Pauline Pinto

"I have had the pleasure of working as a client with TDB and Victor for over 25 years. During that time, I’ve witnessed their growth from personal training through extensive yoga and Pilates certifications, two Master’s degrees and then a doctorate in physical therapy for TDB and degrees in medical massage/ sports therapy, AIS stretching, and exercise physiology for Victor.  They are both consummate professionals, always timely, well prepared, encouraging and fun to work with.  Over the decades, they have played a major role in keeping me healthy and fit as well as facilitating my speedy recoveries from occasional sports injuries.  Victor has also trained both my daughters as teens, improving their strength and stamina and developing their competitive tennis and soccer skills.  They offer in-home, in-gym and ZOOM sessions to meet the needs of their varied clientele. I enthusiastically recommend them."

"I have only wonderful things to say to you and for your help in getting me strong and walking and continuing to walk without fear. Yesterday I walked to Trader Joe’s, used escalator, and bought enough to fill my backpack. Thank you."
Donna Sinanian

"Tara is an inspiration; she has helped my mom so much. My mother’s transformation back to health and strength (after 2 surgeries and several intermittent hospital stays) has been incredible. Tara is kind and patient, as well as knowing exactly what to do and teach to aid in the smoothest recovery. I am so thankful that we found her, she is the best out there."
Ruth Sinanian

"Dr. Tara Bach was the physical therapist to my wife, Joan, for almost three years. During that time my wife and I found her to be a very knowledgeable, dedicated and caring professional. Tara is a very experienced therapist with a very specialized knowledge base, which she put into practice by designing programs that easily fit all my wife’s changing needs. Thus Tara was able to adjust Joan’s therapy program whenever necessary. Her dedication to her patients is absolute. Tara’s constant encouragement and motivation as well as her continual positive reinforcement was instrumental to Joan’s rehabilitation. From our experience, Tara’s singular success as a physical therapist is achieved through her dedication to her patients, her exceptional knowledge of her profession, her ability to inspire and motivate her patients, her application of positive reinforcement and the remarkable chemistry that she develops with her patients. Joan and I had experience with other physical therapists and none comes close to the quality and the exceptionally high standards of Dr. Tara Bach. I could not recommend her more highly."

"A highly professional team approach to fitness. Totally Designed Body offers a breadth of services. They have the sensitivity to determine each client's needs, the knowledge to assess the client's strengths and limitations, and a diverse group of trainers and fitness modalities to allow each individual to achieve his or her fitness objectives safely. I have seen them work equally well with an elite athlete and an osteoporic patient seeking to increase her ability to accomplish activities of daily living. I have complete confidence in Totally Designed Body."
Shonni Silverberg, M.D.

"Seriously overweight and out-of-shape, and seeking to improve my health, I decided to invest in a five-day Totally Designed Boot Camp (TDBC) experience. Tara, Victor and the TDBC staff tailored a program specifically for me and worked with me throughout the week to teach me strategies, techniques and activities that I could really use in my daily life to help me achieve my goals.
Because TDBC provided me with such a strong foundation, I have been able to change my lifestyle and habits to begin to create good health and am happy to be on a far healthier path. I have lost ten percent of my bodyweight, I now excercise regularly (even when I travel), pay close attention to my diet, and feel much, much better. My friends and family notice that I look leaner and healthier! I look forward to continuing to work with TDB in the future."
Edith E. Beatty, Ed.D, Educational Administrator, Vermont

"I have been a client of Totally Designed Body for several years. Working directly with Tara Dawn Bach-Martinez in a mix of personal training, Pilates and Yoga, I have seen my body improve dramatically both in flexibility and in strength. I look forward to each session and am always amazed at how I feel upon completion. Tara is a real pro, understands her field, studies hard to stay up to date, and combines that expertise with a sensitivity and concern that is individual to each client. I could not be more satisfied."
Steve Solomon

"One of the best things to happen to the 2000 employees at The
Interchurch Center was Tara Dawn Bach-Martinez and her wonderful personal trainers, reflexologists and teachers. They run stretching/toning/yoga/Pilates/aerobic exercise classes twice a week during the lunch hour. They orient folk to our exercise equipment. These orientations include lectures on safe exercise and the importance of stretching, as well as proper use of the machines. Instruction is even given on exercise that can be done at home. The emphasis, always, is on total health. Once or twice a year, The Interchurch Center runs a Health Fair. Tara and her crew give lectures and demonstrations on exercise, conduct Body Mass Index and Body Fat assessments and just are "all around" motivators!"
Abby T. Drucker, RN, ANP, Clinical Coordinator
The Medical Office at The Interchurch Center, New York City

"Having tried many other workouts, Totally Designed Body offers the
most effective one I have found. It is the optimal combination of aerobic exercise, interval and strength training, and flexibility using Pilates and Yoga techniques. The intense focus on form and alignment results in a strenuous but safe workout. The trainers are so focused and responsive that I have a tailored workout for my body each day -- which keeps it challenging, interesting and never stale!!!"
Diane Spilker

"The TDB team is very reliable. They take their work very seriously and enjoy every minute of it, even if it means waking up at 4:30 in the morning. They put 100% effort into their training. In addition to being extremely friendly and nice to talk to, they are very professional and knowledgeable. After we are finished training with them, we feel that our bodies have been replenished. Every time we have a question, they always know the answer and seem to have insightful information about our bodies. Every time we are in pain, they always know a way to fix it. THEY ARE THE BEST!!!"
Deb and Alexia Staley

"I have been with Totally Designed Body for over 10 years. I have worked with several teachers and trainers and been fortunate enough to experience Reflexology, which I have had regularly for the past four years. Their integrity, expertise, compassion and dedication are outstanding. I feel my health and activity level would not be what it is today if it were not for Totally Designed Body. They have gotten me through many phases of my life and I appreciate them more than I can put into words."
Jane Foster

"Totally Designed Body is made up of the finest fitness professionals I know. They are totally committed to providing the highest quality personal training for their clients. Their unparalleled backgrounds and numerous certifications make them uniquely qualified to meet the needs of those lucky enough to work with them. I could not recommend them more highly."

Spiritual Services & Meditation Recordings
“Dr. Bach’s recording was short and easy to incorporate into my daily routine. I found myself more relaxed, which helped with other positive changes, allowing me to feel clearer and more focused in obtaining my goals.”
Rev. Kim J. Gifford

“The personal recording that was made for me is opening up new awareness daily, helping me to see and be more of what I want in my life.  It is gentle, yet powerful and is a beautiful blessing to myself and my day.”
Claudia Rydel

“I really enjoyed doing the mediation every day. I found myself becoming more clearer in developing a plan on what truly mattered to me and focused on obtaining my goals allowing my true self to be present”.
Richard Rydel

"Dr. Bach’s Breathing in More of What You Want meditation could be described as flexible in purpose and practical in promise, or intentional by one’s design and inspirational by one’s divine.” #BaruchBachanBach
Dr. Genevieve C. Godin

“I engaged in a meditation recording developed by Dr. Bach and have continued to use this regularly for the past few months. It helps me with relaxation, having a positive outlook on life, and improved focus on the goals I want to achieve.”
Dr. Claudia Fenderson

"I found that visualizing the "relaxation" moving through my body, I was able to feel/sense each body part becoming more relaxed. Listening to the recording at bedtime helped me to fall asleep sooner, and I think I got a better night's sleep. I found that I wanted to continue this process after my 33 days. I still listen to my recording nightly."
Bill Fenderson, Occupational Therapist

"What I got out of my 33 day Meditation recording is A deeper sense of myself. I could look inwardly easier than I could before. Meditation helped me to feel more confident of myself, and I believe that that played a big part of me getting the promotion I wanted"
