MEET OUR HEAD COACH

ANDREA PAPAS

SO, HOW DID IT ALL START?

A BIT OF CONTEXT...

Seventeen years ago, weighing in at 320 pounds, Andrea Papas realized that the relationship he had with food was one that could potentially lead him down a road, which would end in serious health issues and possibly heart disease.

He embarked on a lifestyle journey to turn his life around and diminish his waistline! Now the inspirational 35-year-old health and fitness coach weighs in at a lean and muscular 198 pounds, and encourages and supports others to do the same.

Andrea has over two decades of research and study under his belt, certifications from the following institutes: ISSN, ISSA, ETA, IIN, PFT, PN and The Body Mind Institute. Andrea is currently pursuing an MSc in Nutrition & Exercise Science and will continue to increase his knowledge and expertise with a PHD in Nutritional Sciences.

With the wealth of information he has gathered; his experience in the field, collaborations with like-minded people who are passionate about the science behind building muscle, losing fat and getting healthier and his own motivational success story, Andrea has formed a unique hybrid of methodologies to help all his clients to achieve their fitness, physique and health goals and the most exhilarating part of it all is they are maintaining their results!

His ability to counsel, guide, channel and educate his clients on their individual, lifestyle, transformative journeys, makes him a great coach. However, it’s his love and passion for helping people obtain their goals, which makes him inspirational!

“It may not be an easy journey, but if you have at burning desire to ignite a path to a new you, I look forward to working alongside you, guiding you and sharing the same tools, methods and principles which I used to change my life into a fit, lean and healthy individual." - Andrea Papas
