Hello there! My name is Andrew, I am a certified injury prevention/post rehab specialist. I chose to study this specialty because of my own struggles in the past with injuries, muscle imbalances, posture and mobility. Present day I focus on helping people who want to exerscise again after an injury but are not sure where to start or people who want an extra focus on form to stay safe in pursuit of long term success. If this sounds like what you need help with definitely reach out and lets work together!
My favorite client story
I was working with a client who wanted to compete in physique competitions however his lack of mobility would cause him major pain after a workout. His mobility had dramatically decreased after he had a surgery. This was a big obstacle keeping him from reaching his goal since he could no longer increase the weight in his lifts without major repercussions. When working together we focused on improving the quality of his movement. When we first started he could barely lift his arms over his head, a few months later this was no longer the case. He was free to build as he needed to compete. I cant express in writing how fulfilling this was for me and the biggest reason I focus on post rehab/ injury prevention.
My favorite exercise
Dead lifts and variations of dead lifts are my favorite because most people have weak back muscles and benefit greatly from this exercise.
My favorite quote

My training philosophy
5 days of steady progression is better than 3 days of over-training.

I was referred to Andrew by a friend after I had tried getting back to running. I had been cleared by my doctor to exercise again but I could not go more than fifteen minutes without my old injury acting up. Andrew is very passionate about his profession and demonstrates a deep understanding of what's at stake. He custom designed me a post rehab program that significantly improved my well being the very same week we started it. This has really helped my knee and we have been able to tackle a lot of other barriers all while getting in better shape. Thanks a million Andrew I look forward to working with you over the next six months.
