Andrew Slezak was born and raised in Houston, Texas and moved to Arlington, Virginia to attend college and begin a completely new chapter in life. Now Andrew has graduated from Marymount University with a B.S. in Health and Exercise Science, currently an ACSM certified personal trainer and plans on becoming a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach.
His interest in physical health and weight lifting began in 7th grade football when after school workout sessions became mandatory immediately a day after his last game (life really wasn’t far off from the movie “Friday Night Lights”). As his body developed so did his mentality, the gym not only made Andrew physically healthy, but it developed a strong work ethic; goals were set and achieved, set backs were encountered along with self doubt. But with perseverance he proved to himself that where there is a will there is a way. The lessons taught in the gym became applicable to everyday life.
His own training regimen and philosophy is based on working in a smart systematic manner, not by training “tough” and “hard”. You will strive to be the best that YOU can be, and not compare YOUR OWN success with others. All of us are fully capable of lowering our risk of lifestyle diseases and becoming a more mobile functional human being through exercise. An exercise program prescribed by Andrew will involve moderate to high intensity exercise that incorporates full body movements, mobility/active recovery days, and strength training. One can expect to gain a higher aerobic capacity, flexibility, muscular strength, self-confidence, and a healthier lifestyle. People are designed to move, not sit around all day, clients are encouraged to live active lifestyles to disassociate the words “exercise” and “gym” and start thinking “active life”.
