We are a couple who have made a commitment to each other to work out under the direction of Andrew Stearns. We both have demanding professional careers so we work long hours and at times travel for our jobs. Also we have children; I have two younger children, and Mike has three teenagers, so with the five of them, we are very busy juggling our careers and their demands.
Working out can be a challenge with these time constraints, so thank god for Andy. I met Andy through one of my teammates on my soccer team. It only took a short time to realize how beneficial it was, not to mention convenient, since Andy came to my own home for my workouts. Wow, this is really awesome. Sounds corny, but with two very young children, getting to the gym was an issue. Plus when I went to the gym, I had no idea how to use the equipment. And all those people – Yuk!
When Mike came into the picture, and he watched my workouts for a couple of months. Joking around, I suggested that he get his @@%$#^$&%& in gear and start doing these workouts as well! Mike was up for it, so he started. At times, Mike uses the workouts more for decompression than for strengthening, it is all good, and extremely beneficial. (At times, I do the same, but I really appreciate how my arms do not jiggle when I wave goodbye.) Both Mike and I are 45 years old, and we are looking younger and healthier all the time thanks to Andy. He does not push too hard, but does motivate us to workout at the “right” level.
