I'm passionate about passing on my knowledge to others seeking success in their own fitness/Martial Arts journey, and being a small part of those goals met.
Even though fitness has been an intergral part of my life.After having my second child I fell completely off the wagon.It was quite the challenge getting back into the gym.But working with Drew even from the first day was amazing.He provided achievable goals,engaging sessions and I was still able to function after an full body workout.Which is what I needed as a mother.Drew is a skilled professional that caters his routines based on the individual .
It was the fittest I have ever been. Catered to my level of fitness and made me stronger, lean and healthy through eating the right food.
I started with True Form back in 2007 and immediately hit it off with Drew. Back then I hired Drew as my Personal Trainer. My goal was to regain the fitness level that I was at when I played college football. Also, to get back in shape as I began my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey at 35. With balancing family and business my weight increased to an all time high of 231 pounds. After receiving nutritional guidance and training with Drew 3x a week for several months, I exceeded my expectations and weighed in at 183 pounds. Drew not only pushed me when I trained with him but more importantly educated me on how to stay fit and make it a lifestyle. I was so happy with my experience that I hired True Form to train a few of my employees. Today, Drew with his creative approach to training and sports nutrition continues to help me not only off of the mats but on as my Jiu-Jitsu coach. Billy L, 46 Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt
I always set up an initial consultation to discover what goals and aspirations a potential client/student seeks to achieve. From there we lay out an effective routine/program that will help them reach their goals in the quickest yet most productive way possible.
