Andrew makes sure to stay on the cutting edge of exercise science and nutrition by keeping up to date with published science and attending every expert conference he can make. But he’s not just another guy that knows a lot. He DOES a lot. Andrew takes his knowledge right into his client work, and not only does he further develop that knowledge by testing and modifying it in the real world, he gets some of the best possible results for his clients. If it’s fitness improvement in the real world you’re after, Andrew is the guy to see.
He combines dedication, generosity, professionalism, and skill into everything that he does. Most of all, he’s kind. I like Andrew, and I think that you will too.

I think we’re all waiting for Andrew Coates to rip off his shirt and reveal his superhero uniform. He’s beyond passionate as a strength coach, fitness writer, and podcaster. While he values the old school basics, he also keeps up with cutting-edge perspectives and forms sound opinions based on a variety of both. Keep an eye out for more of his work because it’s going to explode!

Andrew is a breath of fresh air in the fitness industry. First because he is not short and bald, which is a nice change, but mostly because he combines a large amount of practical and theoretical knowledge and doesn’t pigeon-hole himself when it comes to training approaches. Yet, his greatest asset is how he is able to transfer his passion, energy and confidence to get the most out of the people he interacts with, be it clients or fellow coaches. He is one of the good ones!
