Andy Garcia is an alumni of the Body Transformation Club here at Grinder Gym. He was able to lose about 45 lbs during what was a 12 week program! Seeing such a great amount of success was a catalyst that ignited his love of fitness! He realized that his success could act as a spark for others to realize their potential, and embarked on a yearlong program at Miramar College, which concluded with him graduating with honors as a Certified Fitness Specialist!
Leaving his sedentary lifestyle behind, Andy has competed in several obstacle races, such as the Tough Mudder and Spartan Race, blown some personal lifting goals out of the water, and recently competed in his first official powerlifting competition! Being outdoors and active is now one of his top priorities, and he is eager to share that with others.
Andy has been with Grinder Gym for 8 years now, as a client, and now as a trainer. His experience here has motivated him to start his own fitness business, 1 Call Fitness (@1stcallfitness on Instagram). He brings a special type of energy to his classes, along with some great rock music! He is available for Personal Training. He is very excited to work with clients of all fitness levels and especial enjoys those new to exercise that are looking to make that first step towards a healthy and more active lifestyle.
I know the struggles people face when stepping into a gym setting for the first time. It can be intimidating! I know because I have been through it. I also know that working with someone who you can trust to guide you on your journey makes all the difference. Dave and the team at Grinder Gym helped me, and now I’m part of that same team that is going to help you stick with it and accomplish great things. It will be difficult, but it will be worth it!”
You can find Andy on the Grinder Gym Large Group Class Schedule every Tuesday and Wednesday 5pm & 6pm.
