Trainers At This Studio
Personal Trainer at:
Arlington Heights, IL
Andrew was born and raised in a small suburb on Chicago’s border called Elmwood Park. His fitness journey began immediately after high school. He wanted to make some personal changes so that he could live his healthiest, best life. Andrew used fitness techniques he learned playing high school sports, strength training, and a ton of self-education to bring his weight down over 140 pounds in the following year-and-a-half.
After creating such a significant change in his own life, Andrew wanted to help others! He began a career in the Healthcare industry but after a couple of years he felt like he could be having a bigger impact in people’s lives. He wanted to work more directly with people and coach them on how to live a healthy life too.
Andrew asked himself, “What would I need to know if I was just beginning my fitness journey again?” The answer was how to utilize diet and exercise to reach his goals. His next question was, “How could I be a resource for someone like that?” The solution was clear - become a Personal Trainer!
Still actively strength training and eating nutrient dense foods, Andrew added more and more knowledge of exercise and health to his repertoire and began applying them at the gym. Andrew learned about The Perfect Workout and realized there were a handful of training studios in the Chicago area with plans to expand even more. The more he learned about the company, the more he felt aligned with it.
In October of 2017, Andrew was selected to join the Chicago team and he went through an extensive Personal Trainer certification. Once certified, Andrew began training clients in the Arlington Heights location where he still continues to train today.
Being a Personal Trainer at The Perfect workout has been such a fun experience for Andrew. “I love working in the studio. It’s fun and exciting to see people making changes in their health every day.”
Andrew loves being both a coach and a relatable resource for his clients, as they try to improve their health and their lives. He knows what it’s like to have big fitness goals, and what it takes to achieve them. Having conquered so much on his own fitness journey, Andrew brings a high level of compassion to his clients. He understands what challenges his clients may face, and how to overcome them.
Andrew is still continuing to make changes himself! Since joining The Perfect Workout he’s lost another 40 pounds himself, having successfully dropped 200 pounds! “I am stronger than ever, and I feel so much more fulfilled.”
Aside from his own incredible changes, Andrew is proud to be a part of his clients’ successes. One of his senior clients told Andrew she was able to get up the stairs without using the railing for the first time in years as a result of their training together.
In late 2018, Andrew was promoted to become the Facility Manager of the Northbrook studio where he also trains clients. He was inspired by the idea of “running his own business” and leading a studio. “It’s been rewarding to see our studio culture come to life.”
Andrew’s dream is to help empower others to experience the same type of transformation that he experienced. He always says that he could never have accomplished such dramatic results without the support of all the people in his life who were there for him every step of the way. His desire is to provide the same encouragement and support to each one of his clients at The Perfect Workout.

After high school, Diamond progressed to play Division 1 basketball at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, where she also obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication.
