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
When I was thinking of starting my personal fitness and Jiujitsu journey, I was recommended Drew Hopper by one of my friends. Drew gives you a real education in fitness and organic learning in Martial Arts, nutrition and fitness. When working with Drew, He helped rebuild my confidence and discipline with his expert training. The one on one personal touch and attention builds my character. His teaching strategies and techniques are definitely money well spent. In 2019, I have big plans with Drew. I will continue training with him in break my plateau weight but now tone and build muscle after losing over 40lbs along with improving my skills in the Martial Arts.
