Philippe Til is the founder of Origin Motion Fitness in Southern California and popular trainer on ExerciseTV. He is a multi-faceted fitness professional whose vast array of experiences across the globe have allowed him to create his own unique approach to personal training focusing on injury-free yet effective workouts.
Til’s regiment makes subtle changes to the traditional staples such as crunches, pushups, lunges and even cardio fitness. The improved forms work with the “origin motion” of the human body to create workouts free of the bad motions learned by modern adults and the injuries that come with them.
Philippe Til came to California in 1992 to attend USC, having already earned his black belt in Shotokan in France, where he also had studied Muay Thai. He remained in Los Angeles and honed his martial arts skills, which included Kali and Capoeira styles, until earning a Ninjutsu black belt. Til also researched the many fitness approaches available in the health conscious environment of Southern California such as Pilates, kickboxing and various cardio-focused workouts.
A trip to Africa exposed Til to the “hunter-gatherer” concept of fitness, based on the motions used by humanity before the un-ergonomic demands of modern society. With this encompassing selection of motion and ergo-focused fitness disciplines and styles under his belt, Til set about developing his own distinct take on standard workout elements that would deliver effective results while avoiding the common injuries triggered by them. Through safety engineering, he improved factors in each workout motion such as leverage and balance to allow for more fitness benefit with less unproductive strain on the body.
Til’s workouts have earned him the attention of ExerciseTV, the leading digital fitness network, where he has been featured online and in 38 million digital television homes.
In his spare time, Philippe is an active snowboarder and surfer, as well as a dedicated father and husband.

"I describe Philippe as a mentor and a motivator. Hiring him as my personal trainer has been the best investment I have made, both physically and mentally. He transformed me inside out. I am not just talking physical appearance. I feel better about myself when I was training with Philippe. He mentors you to push yourself. He takes you to a place where you want to leave your comfort zone and find new heights. Philippe introduced me to kettle bell training about one year ago. My performance has soared. I would never imagined I can move 3500 pounds in five minutes....well, train with Philippe and you will see. Philippe is the kind of trainer who looks out for his clients. He is someone who continues to improve and educate himself so he can pass on his knowledge and wisdom to people he train with. The quality of his knowledge is top notch. "
