Emmy Award-winning sports reporter
I’ve always been an athlete of sorts. My dad had me water-skiing at age five and running with him at nine. I ran track, played basketball, did mini triathlons, two NYC marathons and competed in a long expedition adventure race in New Zealand.

I met Andy in 1998, as one of two support crew for his adventure racing team in the Raid Gauloises, Ecuador. The first thing I remember about Andy was his charismatic smile and his happy, energetic personality and how extremely fit he was. He was always well organized, honest, and smart and I never saw him lose his temper or be condescending to anyone. His athleticism and dedication to what he was trying to accomplish and his teammates was admirable. Needless to say, I was impressed. After the race, my life took me away from my own athletic endeavors to report on the accomplishments of “real” athletes. I got a job as a reporter for Fox Sports, got married and in 2003 had a baby — and gained 70 pounds!

I didn’t see Andy again until 2004 when I desperately needed someone that I could trust to get me back into the shape I used to be in. We met and talked about a program suited for me, which included not only training but nutrition as well. Andy is one of the most knowledgeable people in the fitness industry and he knew exactly what would work for me. His system is unlike any trainer I’ve ever met because it works your whole body in a short amount of time. You rarely do the same workout twice, except to see how you’ve progressed. When you finish his workout you’re sweating, exhausted and in awe that you were able to do what you did. Having Andy as a trainer has been the key to my mental and physical well-being. I feel like a better wife and mother because I’m taking care of myself again. I also feel stronger and have more energy. Yes, sometimes I still get frustrated that my body is taking a bit longer than I thought it would to bounce back, but Andy is always there, encouraging and pushing me; with that big charismatic smile. Thank you, Andy.Having Andy Petranek as a trainer has been the key to my mental and physical well-being.
