"Counseling the Mind, Exercising the Body"

T.A.M.S. | Toward A Magnificent Self

Welcome to TAMS

TAMS (Toward A Magnificent Self)

My name is Tami Anastasia and I have merged the two disciplines of counseling and personal training to form TAMS health and wellness programs. TAMS is located in Los Gatos, California. I have spent years working with people to overcome their exercise barriers and to make exercise a healthy lifestyle habit.

TAMS Radio Show

When it comes to our health, most of us know what to do, and yet, we have difficulty making those choices. Join health and wellness counselor, author and motivational speaker, Tami Anastasia, M.A. as she explores and uncovers the answers to why we do what we do, why we make the choices we make and why we do the opposite of what we say we’re going to do.
