Thomas Rotterdam is an alpha dog doctor, who loses his medical license due to rule-breaking, and lousy people skills. He's a genius when working with the body, and recognizes that bodies tell stories. He becomes a super-trainer (getting financing from suspect backers) to open his own gym. Bodies of Work-NYC is a fitness church whose commandment is "Your body's a temple. Attract worshippers." It's run by Neyda Farris, former U. N. worker who realizes only body and soul are universal. She spars with Thomas while juggling her buff, bizarre staff. Some trainers love what they do. For others, Bodies of Work-NYC is a pit-stop on the way to different dreams. Written by Anonymous

Excellent characters, interesting story world, great dialogue
23 October 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

thought it was compelling. A different world, not (to my knowledge) yet seen on TV. Thomas Rotterdam is interesting, driven, a bit crazy, but seems to be a genius in his chosen field. The supporting characters (I see this more as an ensemble as time goes by) are really interesting and 3D. I particularly liked the Michael and Freddy, Sean and Freddy dynamics. And really loved the Ahmad Taylor character---his relationship with his sister and the hinted at back story re: his Mom. The Neyda character (the gym manager) was interesting, seemed very strong in how she handled Thomas, and all the other characters walking into the gym on the first day. I'm interested to see what happens with Thomas' case against the med school, and VERY INTRIGUED to see what happens with the guys who finance Thomas' BODIES OF WORK-NYC--they seem like mobsters, so I'm sure as this series gets picked up that will be a very intriguing development.
