Drew temple @punsandpounds
When Drew was nineteen years old, unhappy with his weight, fitness, and low self esteem, he took long hard look at himself and decided to change his life. Drew spent a year playing around in the gym without seeing much change and having no idea of what a healthy lifestyle was, and he became extremely frustrated with little results. Then one day a co-worker told Drew about CrossFit, and after one workout he was hooked. Drew saw greater results from a ten minute workout than he had in one year on the treadmill. From there on out, fitness became not just a chore to accomplish, but something Drew could look forward to. After a year of specified and dedicated training, Drew found that he was leaner, stronger, had better self esteem than ever before. Inspired by the results, Drew decided to become a trainer himself.
Drew’s goal and joy is to see others find the same joy in fitness. Every person has different goals, but Drew’s desire is simple: “I want to help you reach the fitness goals you have always wanted. So, whether you want to lose weight, gain weight, feel good, or be healthy, fit, toned, I will make it my personal task to get you those results.”
Drew has experience training everyone from athletes, over-weight clients, pre/postnatal women, youth and the elderly.
