The Face of Fitness
Everyone’s fitness journey starts somewhere. For Arlington-based trainer Andy Shin, it was breaking the cycle of unhealthy living after the passing of his mother from cancer. Now, he combats the ever-present possibility of illness by prioritizing wellness for himself and his clients.
“Exercise is powerful medicine and can be used preventatively or for healing,” says Andy Shin. Since 2013, he has trained more than 650 people ranging in age, ability, needs and goals—and his wife Michelle’s support has been integral to success. Individualized training plans carefully accommodate physical limitations and health concerns. Drawing from personal experience, extensive fitness and nutritional knowledge, and his desire to help people, Shin relishes empowering clients—as partner and coach—to achieve their goals, and ultimately, feel stronger and healthier.
