Fundamentally FIT Client Testimonials
Andy, other than a big thank you, what else can I say?! You got me through my first triathlon in under 3 hours with the attention to detail program you set out, which based around my current delicate back and knee was fun to follow. On top of all that you came and held my hand (not literally) for some open water swim training and gave me countless of invaluable tips but made sure you didn't overload me with too much to think about. Anyone reading this and is unsure if Andy is the personal trainer for you, do not hesitate, if Andy has space to take you on as a client. BOOK HIM! Since this post Andy has been amazing again.

Enlisting the help of Fundamentally Fit is one of the best things I've ever done. I was, fundamentally, fat and I felt rubbish: I was eating badly, was struggling to run, I looked and felt awful. I'd not lost post baby-weight (my daughter is almost five, so no excuse) and I was stuck in a cycle of eating too much sugar, not exercising nearly enough and feeling tired all the time. To fix the tiredness I was eating sugar and not exercising because I felt so tired and on and on, round and round. Andy was like a knight in shining (under) armour. He took me on and it's revolutionised my life. He's helped me change my negative 'chatter' and thought patterns. He didn't judge me the first time I stepped on the scales. He's facilitated change. He's motivated me to achieve fitness levels beyond all expectation. I'm also enjoying food perhaps more than I ever have. And I've nearly got back to running a 5k sub-30- a bit of a running holy grail for me. Working with Fundamentally Fit has revolutionised my life and I honestly believe that I've changed for good. I'm now safe in the knowledge that I'll be entering my 40's in a couple of years slim, with a healthy BMI, perfect blood pressure readings and a hugely reduced risk of diabetes. For now, I'm off on holidays soon and I'm looking forward to wearing a bikini again. Seriously: try Fundamentally Fit!

Diet & Lifestyle Optimisation
I have always been very health conscious, so I went to Andy to see if I could perfect my diet. My diet was very good, focused on eating lots of unprocessed and healthy foods, but it was very clear after talking to Andy there were some great ways to make it much better. Not only did Andy use his expertise to focus on crafting a healthy balanced diet suited to me, he also focused on helping me create sustained energy release (a very unexpected and brilliant bonus!). It was a really enjoyable and informative process that gave me a very clear plan on how to blend fats, carbs and proteins based on what you like to eat to bring in a more healthy balance and energy into your world. I have shared everything I have learned with my whole family too, my wife was trilled! This is why I work with Andy and I send all of my clients who want to take their fitness to the next level too. Andy will create an exciting and inspiring program towards whatever big fitness goal you have! Many thanks
Customer Astrid from Walton
After having completed a Kickstarter Programme myself last year, I recommended the same to my daughter, now 18, when she decided to adopt a more plant-based diet with the long-term goal to follow a vegan diet. My daughter, who is now at university, is very happy with the advice received. She has developed a much better understanding of nutrition in general and her diet in particular, which has helped her make informed decisions on moving towards a plant-based diet. Although getting all the nutrients in her diet is an important aspect of it, my daughter found the advice re which foods to eat when, and how those choices might affect things like concentration particularly useful. For me as a parent, it is comforting to know that my daughter has all the knowledge she needs to stay healthy while accommodating her desire to become vegan. I have no hesitation to recommend Andy Strong of Fundamentally Fit to anyone thinking of moving to a plant-based diet.
Rob from Cranleigh
When I met with Andy for the first time in October 2017 I was in a relatively unhappy place; stressed, over-weight, unfit and tired. I had a lot on in my life with a major family move to Surrey and a busy business. I have been a relatively competitive runner since 2004. I just stopped enjoying it 3 years ago. I needed the kick start to get me back to the "happy running place"! Through Andy's Kick Start program of running, gym sessions, diet and general health advice I was able to get myself back on track. As of February 2018, I am 1.5 stone lighter than I was 3 months ago, I am running (and enjoying it!) 3-4 times a week and I completed my first half marathon in almost 4 years in March. I even run weekly with my wife, Mandy, something we never did before. Thank you so much.

Ironman World Championship Qualifier
Andy Strong has really helped me over the last year with my strength training and developing a good foundation of core work which has allowed me to consistently produce some PBs in my last races. To put it into perspective I ran a PB 2:40 marathon and was 8th overall at Ironman UK. I can not recommend Strongie enough. He is a very approachable guy that genuinely wants the best for his clients.

Specialist Coaching (M.E)
I have been very poorly with M.E for five years which has really gone into remission. I wanted to get fit and work with someone who could design a program to be adapted to my energy, which can vary greatly;y. work demands and daily life. My fitness results have far exceeded my expectations. I feel stronger, more confident and happier in myself. Andy delivers and excellent training sessions which is sensitive to my needs, he listens to my feedback and responds with adjustments, whilst delivering a challenging varied and enjoyable session. Andy Strong is an exceptional, stand out Fitness Professional which I have recommended to my family (son) and friends.

Marathon P.B & Heart Attack Survivor
Fantastic Personal Trainer, I would not hesitate to recommend Andy to anyone whom wants to better themselves. Yogesh achieved his sub-4-hour marathon goal, knocking 13 minutes off my previous best time.
Siyarra from Rustington
I'm much more toned, have improved my stamina and I have lost inches of the wobbly bits! What I liked best about the program was being told what to do and why. as well as fitting into my busy schedule. Andy is very encouraging and anyone who is sitting on the fence about starting a new program I would say that you should definitely do it.
