If you want to get in the best shape of your life and do it properly, do it with Animal! One of the saddest days of my life was when Animal told me he was moving away from Seattle. I knew that I would be losing a great trainer, a mentor, and a dear friend. I started training with Animal when I was the tender age of 22 and he set a foundation for me that will last me a lifetime. His knowledge of the human body and nutrition combined makes for the perfect trainer. During my sessions, I always felt safe because I was confidant that Animal was ALWAYS watching my form, and because his workouts made sense. His workouts were rarely ever the same so I was always excited to go in. If I came in and wanted to work a certain muscle group, he would quickly incorporate a new move into the routine to meet my need. Furthermore, if I ever went in with a bad mood, Animals’ uplifting character took away my blues (of course the high adrenaline rush from lifting weights helped as well).

Animal is also very professional. He won’t say anything to make you feel uncomfortable and you always get your full times worth of working out. You will always walk out feeling as though you’ve accomplished something great with your body, and be stronger and more fit that you were walking in. I can’t express enough how much I miss my trainer, and if I were to ever get so lucky as to train with him again, I would do it in a heartbeat!
