Amanda's Testimony

I have been training with Andrew since May of 2014, and at Defensive Fitness for two years.  My goals have been to both lose weight and to tone and become stronger and healthier as I get older.

I have always been active and worked out consistently, but what I lacked was a structured program tailored to me and to gaining results I wanted to see. Since I have been working with Andrew I have noticed my stamina, energy and especially strength increase far beyond anything I could do on my own. I have had bad tendonitis in many joints my entire life, but with Andrew’s knowledge and help I have almost eliminated the pain that would come from a long day on my feet, or overuse of a joint through daily living. 

Also, having the scheduled workout times and Andrew’s attentiveness to every member and being sure they are working out consistently, I am able to get in three to four workouts a week with a crazy work/personal life schedule. That in and of itself is a miracle! 

Finally, you will never find a more supportive group of people who I enjoy seeing and working out with each week. It really is a family, and that is something you’ll never find at a large gym.
