2 years ago I was just starting to work out after injuring my lower back. I was frustrated, in pain, needed to lose weight, and was incredibly limited in what I could do physically. I knew I needed help.
When I reached out to Drew I never would have imagined how successful I would be. On the first day I could barely do a squat, a single push-up, or any type of cardio movement without being completely winded and strained. I was at rock bottom performance wise. Today, just over a year later, I am 25 lbs lighter, 10x stronger, am able to do a full hour workout consisting of multiple sets of squats , lunges, pushups, weights, cardio exercises, battle ropes, boxing, and core work. The highlight of 2014 was me completing the Spartan race with pictures at the finish line to prove it. My physical transformation of conditioning, strength, and positive energy is simply amazing.
His workouts are tough, but really fun. He challenges me every week to do better than the week before. I can confidently say I am so much stronger and healthier than I have ever been. Without his coaching I would have never have been so successful. Drew is an amazing trainer and I am lucky to have his support and friendship through this journey.
