NEW INDOOR BOOTCAMP starting 11th August 2020
Ok, so a bit about me, I’m Andy and, like nearly every other personal trainer out there, I used to be fat and unfit until I changed my life around. Unlike many others out there I was really big - morbidly obese at 165kg with a 58" chest and a 56" waist. This is nothing to be proud of.
It wasn’t until the excess weight resulted in poor health and started having a detrimental effect on my life that I was forced into doing something about it. Poor lifestyle choices and concentrating more on my work than my own life and wellness had all added up and were not contributing to a positive future.
As my body started to suffer I was pretty oblivious as to how bad it had got “ignorance was indeed bliss” Getting back into a healthier lifestyle was tough and at times emotional, I often felt uncomfortable in a gym or class environment in the early stages of my fitness journey and I don’t want anyone to ever feel like they don’t belong or that they shouldn’t be there.
Some people can find it hard to stay motivated working out in a run of the mill chain gym, feeling as though they’re in a 'fish bowl' environment. When I started running classes at a dance studio I realised that I could provide a different experience in a space which is friendly and flexible so I opened my own training space.
From my own experience I know that leading a fit and active lifestyle contributes to not only improved health but also an enormous sense of well-being. I don’t just train or coach, I support and care as I help you on your journey.
In 2018 The Studio, my boutique training space in Bitterne, Southampton began on its own journey. Since then I have enjoyed being able to help more people achieve their personal fitness and wellness goals with classes, bootcamps and personal training.
Who would have thought 5 years ago that a 25 stone Restaurant Manager would be living out his dream, developing and building his own business and brand within the fitness industry. I can’t help but wake up every day with a smile and a desire to push myself, my clients and my business as we all achieve great things.
My mantra is ‘motivation, fitness, well-being’
See you soon
Andy is brilliant, so patient and encouraging, I’m buzzing after every session, I think I’m actually improving. Never before have I felt comfortable in a gym setting. I actually look forward to going. Jan B - February 2020
I have been attending bootcamp classes with Andy for the last year and have seen a huge difference in my fitness levels. The classes are also really friendly unlike the local gyms I have tried in the past. Jolene W - February 2020

Classes are back on at dreki.life studio and Andy has worked incredibly hard to make sure the studio is clean and safe for customers and himself.
Hand sanitiser everywhere and social distancing in place, all equipment cleaned and sanitised after anyone uses anything. I felt totally safe, it’s so good to be back. Would much rather go to the studio than a commercial gym.
Keep up the good work Andy! Tina S - July 2020
I love working out at dreki.life, it’s a very clean, positive, supportive and fun environment to work out in with a very friendly group of non pretentious people.
I love the focus, hard work and passion that Andy puts into both PTs and the group classes and the varied range of exercise techniques and tools used.
I find the flexibility round my shift work allows me to encompass and maintain a high level and standard of fitness and work/ life balance. Gemma R - July 2020
