For the last 10 years most people would call me a strength coach or personal trainer. My goal is to evolve into a teacher.

If you’re making progress, keep cruising. If you’re not, try another way.

More importantly, he wants to use what he learns to help others get the most out of their own bodies. He loves all things outdoors but especially mountain biking, bush walking and skiing. He’s an avid martial artist currently studying Hapkido, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do. Andy also has experience with regular weight lifting, kettlebells, DVRT (sandbags) and various other training modalities. However, his love of movement and quest for strength and flexibility drew him to GMB where the programs and overall philosophy of GMB resonated with his own beliefs.
Rachel has been GMB’s Content Manager for the past 3 years, and her love of movement and the GMB method eventually led to her become a GMB Trainer as well.

She’s especially interested in movement exploration for beginners, and in helping others gain freedom in their own bodies.

He is constantly exploring more and more body movement in order to understand and respect his own body. He loves to teach people who want to learn how to be a ‘child’ again.
GMB Trainers Surpass Industry Standard
Most fitness systems hand out certifications like candy.
All you need is a free weekend and a couple thousand dollars, and you too can be a fitness expert – Wow!
We decided not to go down that path. Instead, we set out to improve on the certification process in the most fundamental way by replacing the “certification seminar” with a minimum of three months of apprenticeship.
It’s a much more time-consuming process for us and for our trainer candidates, but the result is that we can recommend the individuals on this page with pride.
