    I have been working with Andrea for over half a year now, and I am truly enjoying her fitness training services. I came to her a pretty seasoned long-distance endurance athlete, but wanted to work on my strength, speed, and flexibility. She has definitely delivered. Every three weeks, she write me a new set of dynamic flexibility, strength training, and sprint workouts. They work my entire body in a doable amount of time, and I have seen great results. I have gained flexibility, become a faster runner, built lean muscle, and significantly decreased my body fat. She is also knowledgeable about nutrition and has helped me to severely reduce my sugar habit and up my protein intake as a vegetarian athlete.

    The best part is that I've discovered how fun it is to lift. As a petite woman, Andrea has helped me feel confident in a weight room, among all the big, burly bros. I can't wait to get back in there and continue to lift heavy and see my strength progress.

    I started working with Andrea in San Diego 3 months after having my second child (my first C-Section). I have always been athletic/active, but after several months of off-and-on back pain I realized I needed to be smart about getting my active lifestyle back, especially working carefully on core strength lost because of the C-Section. Andrea did a thorough analysis of my body/diet and designed a foundational workout program that I could do on my own. I continued to meet with her for an assessment every month and she would switch up my program to make it more challenging as I got stronger. She always did a great job of assessing when I needed to continue where I was and when I needed to push myself. The results have been fabulous. In 5 months I lost 8% body fat and 14 lbs, I am at my goal weight, and continue to progress and have fun!!! I used to run for hours, but these short/smart workouts have been way more effective, and really fit well with my busy working mom life. The other day I went rock climbing for the first time in years and was amazed at how strong I was! Regardless of your fitness level or goals, Andrea is a great nutrition coach, personal trainer, and fitness resource to help you reach your goals.

    Andrea is a wonderful personal trainer! Before I met her, I had no experience with weight training and had been afraid to try out the machines in the gym. At our first meeting, Andrea performed an assessment test to determine my fitness level, strengths, and weaknesses and created a customized training program. Although I had run endurance races in the past (marathon, triathlon, and a number of half-marathons), there were a number of issues with my strength, balance, and flexibility. In the 6+ months that I have trained with Andrea, I have seen a noticeable improvement in these problem areas. It has been exciting to see my weekly progress and I can definitely feel an overall difference. In addition to strength training, Andrea has also been able to customize my training schedule for specific short-term goals. For example, she helped me train and complete the San Diego Tough Mudder race (10+ mile obstacle course). Andrea looked through the obstacle list and assigned relevant exercises and adjusted them to my fitness level. I recommend Andrea as a fitness trainer and encourage others to invest in their health and fitness.

    I work with Andrea at the Broadway Athletic Club in Downtown San Diego. I have been a regular gym goer for about 15 years and always maintain a very healthy lifestyle, but had never worked with a personal trainer in the past. However, in recent years, I had started to feel that my work outs weren't giving me results and I had hit a plateau. The membership director suggested I meet with Andrea to do an assessment.

    I wasn't totally sold on the idea (I mean, I wasn't looking to lose weight or to train for a marathon, or to plan for an upcoming wedding, etc.).. that is, until I met Andrea. It was clear within 5 minutes of speaking with her that she is extremely knowledgeable in her field as a fitness trainer. She was able to quickly identify my strengths and weaknesses and offered to write a program for me that would get me greater results and would challenge my body (and mind!) in a new way.

    I have now been working with Andrea for about 7 months. I have lost 9% of my body fat (without gaining or losing any weight!) and can see noticeable changes in my muscle tone and strength. My work outs are challenging and fun and keep me on my toes. Andrea knows how to push me, but also listens to my feedback and adjusts my programs accordingly if she sees that I am struggling to have proper form with a particular exercise.

    All in all, Andrea is phenomenal and has had such a positive impact on my life. She is professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. One quote to describe Andrea: "Though she be but little, she is fierce!!!"

    I trained with Andrea for six months. Shortly after we started our sessions together, I found out I was pregnant. My initial goal was to lose weight but Andrea changed our game plan accordingly. I am so happy to have trained with her through some of the tougher months of pregnancy. She was so knowledgeable about what I was capable of doing. Every session was different and challenging, and I always left energized. Despite my expanding body, I feel strong and healthy. She is a full-service trainer and always has great advice. Sadly, I am moving so I won't get to train with her post-pregnancy.
