Our Fitness Consultant: Andrew Hurst
Clinically Supervised Fitness, Nutrition, and Wellness Complimented by Medicine
Andrew Hurst obtained his degree in Kinesiology from the Pennsylvania State University, consistently ranked as one of the top fitness degree programs in the country. Mr. Hurst has an extensive background in anatomy and physiology, ranging in detail from micro-cellular biology and interaction to human motion.
There is currently no central certification agency that differentiates between fitness professionals such as Mr. Hurst and those that we call “online certified” trainers. Mr. Hurst is an educated and certified trainer that understands not only your body, but how it will interact with and accept medicinal treatments.
Mr. Hurst boasts both impressive credentials and extensive work experience in the fitness profession. Prior to working with Dr. Glat, Mr. Hurst worked with Roger Schwab, one of America’s top fitness coaches at Main Line and Fitness. Under the tutelage of Schwab, Mr. Hurst became certified in Safe and Sensible ExerciseTM and developed a thorough understanding of “working smarter, not harder” to obtain fitness goals and overall wellness. Mr. Hurst also runs his own fitness practice; working with clients to build wellness through one-on-one physical training and consultation. Not only a fitness professional but an athlete, Mr. Hurst has played semi-professional baseball in multiple leagues as well as coaching American Legion teams.
Mr. Hurst enjoys training people of all ages but has a true passion for helping individuals prevent injury. This passion developed after his own baseball career was cut short due to improper coaching and subsequent injury. Andrew believes injuries can be prevented by being proactive and by employing proper training techniques, rather than waiting to respond to injuries reactively after they have already incurred.
