My Personal Training and Group Fitness philosophy is based on positive energy, intensity and having fun. I help my clients and class participants incorporate health and fitness into their individual lives, and teach them how to exercise correctly to build self-confidence in and out of the gym. As a former recreational and competitive bodybuilder I always based my own training regimen only on building muscle and burning fat, never truly focusing on the power of functional movements and mobility. In 2012 I was introduced to Hard-Style Kettlebell training and CrossFit and my love of fitness was reinvigorated. I learned quickly that true fitness is not what you see in the mirror, but mentally and physically feeling your best as a result of the effort you put in, everyday. I dedicate my coaching to help others achieve the same, everyday!

“Having a strong background in biological sciences made me realize the importance of the human body, and how fitness and nutrition play a vital role in our lives. This became more evident after becoming a mother when your health, self-esteem and energy levels are important, not only for yourself but for those around you. My aim as a personal trainer is based on building your body and confidence by encompassing strength training, cardio and full body workouts that are based on the principle of stabilization, strength and power”

There is a saying, which states “every Trainer’s first client is themselves”. As a child and young adult I battled with fluctuating weight and low self-esteem. I didn’t like who I was so I decided to make a change. I believe anyone can change to become the best version of themselves, which usually starts with one’s health and then manifests throughout all other aspects of their life. We all have goals that are personal and unique to our situation in life, and my job as a trainer/coach is to help my clients take the most effective path towards meeting those goals while maintaining a safe and fun environment. I get to watch people from so many different walks of life change inside and out as a result of their hard work. The greatest joy I get from my career is witnessing that transformation in my clients.

Like so many of us, I started exercising to lose weight. But I didn’t become consistent and committed to strength training until 2006, when I spent a year recovering from a horse riding accident. Through the process of rebuilding my core strength and healing my low back, I discovered the positive impact that building our physical strength can have on our mind, body and spirit. Since then, I’ve been dedicated to helping my clients build and improve their fitness through focused core work, individualized strength training programs, and cardiovascular conditioning. When I work with my clients, I push, support, guide, and encourage them so they can move, feel and look their best.

I’ve been working as a personal trainer since 2007. After gaining a decade of experience, I’ve realized that there are numerous factors to consider when starting an exercise program. I believe in truly learning the movements and knowing what your body should be doing and feeling, not just working out. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses and their exercise program should reflect that. There is no program or diet that will work perfectly for everyone. My goal as a trainer is to help create a pain free program that works the best for my clients individual needs while achieving their goals. Throughout my decade of experience Ive helped clients succeed in various aspects of fitness: weight loss, kettlebells, powerlifting, sports specific training and injury prevention.

Andrew was raised in North Texas in a family who had a passion for sports and fitness. Growing up he played football and baseball, but eventually stuck with baseball and played on scholarship for The George Washington University in our nation’s capital where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. His baseball career was cut short due to injury and from there he found a love for powerlifting and wanted to be able to help others find a passion for health and fitness as well. Andrew’s ultimate goal is to become a Physical Therapist and to implement his knowledge and experience in personal training to help patients progress outside the clinic. Prior to moving to Seattle, he worked for two years in a physical therapy clinic as well as a personal training gym where he taught HIIT, group classes, and strength training from middle and high school aged to professional athletes and weekend warriors.
