Drew has been training for 15 years and became fascinated with human movement and started his training career back in 2014. He loves helping others achieve their fitness goals and building new relationships. Drew truly believes that fitness programs must be designed for the individual rather than the group: “Each one of us is unique, and our fitness programs should be just as unique…people should be approached with an integrative perspective in terms of lifestyle, nutrition, and movement.” His goal in life is to help many people reach their goals and to create and nourish those relationships so that they can last a lifetime. His ideal client is someone willing to learn and humble enough to attack their weaknesses and to be held accountable. Drew has experienced many setbacks in his fitness journey including a battle against Lyme disease and FAI which has caused degenerative arthritis in his hip. Through these obstacles He became even more fascinated with injury prevention and rehab techniques. He was admitted to SCCC’s physical therapy assistant program and worked as an aide in a physical therapy clinic. He decided to opt out of that program because He believes he can make a larger Impact in the gym so that people do not end in need of physical therapy in the first place. Currently, Drew is Enrolled in a Health Promotion and Wellness program and has the following certifications:
Precision Nutrition Level 1
CrossFit Level 1
