David's Testimony

I’ve been with Defensive Fitness for 3 years. My goal has been to get stronger as I get older and keep in shape. I was primarily a runner for 38 years as my preferred way of staying in shape. After experiencing a lot of hip pain after my runs a few years ago, the doctor told me that I "wore out my hips".

Over the past 3 years, under Andrew’s coaching, I learned proper technique for lifting and continued to increase my strength while keeping up aerobic fitness. Prior to coming to Defensive Fitness, I lived with significant hip pain while walking. But through the training, the pain has been eliminated, and I am much stronger in both my upper and lower body. No more limping because of the hip pain.

I also appreciate Andrew’s attention to diet and to staying up to date on the latest strength and conditioning research, which he implements into his programs. I like being challenged physically and mentally, and Defensive Fitness training meets both challenges!
