Andrei Rusu

I’ve been into fitness pretty much as long as I remember myself, says Andrei. He joined a military college at the age of 16. He qualified as a personal trainer 3 years ago and never looked back.  To train people is his passion and feels rewarded when he sees results and progress of his clients. He is specialised mostly in bodyweight training. He pushes the body to its limits and delivers intense and high impact sessions using very specialised movements.

You will be shocked but what your body can do. Due to his own my spine condition, He can’t lift heavy weights, it will aggravate the problem, he says. However since the shift in his own training from weights he went on to designing new exercises using my own bodyweight, aimed at getting stronger and more mobile. He believes that keeping the muscles and joints strong and healthy are vital.  He also firmly believes that results come from combination of healthy well balanced nutrition and an exercise regime.
