What our clients say....

Todd Acton

I have added 60 lbs to my squat, 40 lbs to my deadlift, 45 lbs to my bench press, and 50 lbs to my press.  

Dr. Joseph M. Costello

After just a few conversations Andy devised a custom strength program that allowed me to reach my goals and fit into my busy lifestyle. Since beginnning the program I have made solid gains in strength and size. I have been very impressed with Andy’s knowledege and am sincerely thankful for his help.

John Petrizzo


I can honestly say that the decision to reach out to Andy has been the best decision I have ever made in regards to my training.  Since contacting Andy, I have gained around twenty pounds of body weight while making significant progress in all of my lifts.

Markus Wyss

Thanks for such a great strength program for this former Crossfitter.  I finally have a strength program that makes sense and is giving me the gains I want.  I have added 70 lbs to my squat in just 12 weeks.  You advice has been a tremendous help in my training.

David Kennedy

Andy is a coach who really knows his stuff and stands by his clients to help them in any way he can.  Give Andy a call if you are ready to take your strength and conditioning to another level.  I’m setting new PR’s every week – are you?

Patrick Stahl

I’m disappointed that I didn’t discover Andy earlier in my training career. Instead of wasting time and not making any progress, I have a program that is effective and efficient. Andy tailored a program that fits my schedule. His advice is helpful and practical and I recommend his programs to anyone looking to get stronger.

David Bradley

I can’t recommend working with Andy enough. When working with Andy, I always feel like I’m working with a caring expert professional. He’s more knowledgeable than anyone I’ve ever trained with.  This guy has the knowledge and touch to train elite athletes,  your grandmother, and everyone in between.  I’ve gotten everything I wanted and more.
