You can expect intense, focused, and specific workouts that will challenge your body many different ways. I specialize in weight loss, body transformation, strength training, Olympic lifts, balance training, core strength, body toning, conditioning, functional circuit training, hypertrophy training, sports training, plyometrics, battle ropes, TRX, kettlebells, medicine balls, nutritional guidance! Fitness cannot be streamlined and everyone does not fit into the same category. Training needs to be specific to the client and functional. I keep fitness safe and effective so people can live pain free the rest of their life. A workout program that compromises the safety of your knees and back is not a workout program at all.
My favorite client story
Any client I work with that shows up to every session ready to push themselves and work hard. I love that amount of dedication inside the gym and outside at home. With that attitude success is inevitable for all my clients.
My favorite exercise
Any compound functional lift (squats, deadlifts, pull ups, etc)
My favorite quote
Above all training needs to be specific. If you don't know where you want to go or why you want to go there, getting there will be much harder.

As a musician I travel and play shows all over the world and I need the energy to perform on stage for 2-3 hours. I make sure to book sessions with Andrew whenever I am in LA because he keeps me in shape! His complete approach to fitness works well for me and I love that he helps me find ways to eat healthier on the road and writes up workouts I can do on my own. (Jonathan Fritzen - Billboard #1 Chart topping musician based in Stockholm)
After working with several different trainers, I can say that Andrew is the best. When I am in Los Angeles, Andrew keeps me active and fit. I am not only in better shape after a few sessions, but my posture and overall energy level have both improved thanks to Andrew. I am happy to have worked with a trainer who pays special attention to form and who is so knowledgable about fitness. You will work muscles you didn't think you had. Plus, Andrew is the nicest guy! Thumbs up all around. (Jason - Writer, Girls, Gracepoint)
