Depending on which fitness professional you ask, the title of this blog could be considered a hot take. You should only be eating egg whites, right? I’m here to tell you why it’s not a hot take, and why I believe you shouldn’t eat just the whites anymore. First, let’s look into the two parts…
I started training at Spectrum because I was frustrated with being in and out of PT for constant neck, back and knee pain. Andrew tailored the workouts to my needs and goals, showing me a variety of routines that I can easily do at home. I learned that getting fit really isn’t that hard and doesn’t have to take a lot of time. I feel great and am stronger and leaner than I have been in a long time. More importantly I no longer have pain. Working with Andrew has been fantastic and I so appreciate his encouragement along the way. What I love most is that I’ve easily been able to incorporate the fitness and nutrition knowledge into my daily life.
I could never have done it on my own! Thank you, Andrew!
Andrew has worked one-on-one with me as my trainer for over a year. He has been key to my recovery from more than 10 years of chronic back pain. When I started working with Andrew, I had reached a point where the back pain could no longer be ignored. I was unable to stand straight. I was unable to walk more than a very short distance without terrible pain, sitting triggered terrible back spasms. I was a hot mess.
He tailored a program that worked the parts of my body that weren’t in pain and kept me strong. He found ways to strengthen those muscles that were weak because of my condition and he was willing to change up his plan in an instant in response to my physical condition for that day.
After the first 5 months of working with Andrew, I was in much less pain. I was able to walk and stand without pain. I’ve lost over 30 pounds. I look and feel terrific. Now our workouts focus on my getting stronger and getting me back to competing in triathlons.
Andrew never gave up on me. He is always encouraging. He has a way of making me feel comfortable about trying new activities. He is very focused and attentive. He checks in to make sure I’m feeling OK and not in pain because I still have days when I need to be careful. He is by far the best personal trainer that I have ever worked with.
