We are proud to announce the hiring of our new Personal Training Director, Drew Dufrene. Drew is a graduate from the EJ Ourso College of Business at LSU, and has been active in the health and fitness business for several years. Learn more about Drew below in his own words.
“As a child, I had a great passion for being competitive, and I thoroughly enjoyed the science behind anatomy and sports science. I joined a Youth Training program at age twelve. I was taught how to properly use the equipment, and quickly began exercising in the gym in addition to my sports activities. I spent all four years of high school in a conditioning course based on weight training, agility drills, and cardio endurance training.”
“In 2010, I was mentored by a local gym owner and obtained my group training certification through the Athletics & Fitness Association of America (AFAA). I worked at Sandbox Fitness doing group training and building my personal training knowledge. In 2013, I was certified by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in personal training, and will continue my professional career here at Max Fitness!”
“I have a deep understanding of functional training. I work and have worked with a multitude of injuries from skeletal, joint, muscular to organ based limitations. Head to toe, I have trained any sort of challenge. I also truly enjoy the complexity of HIIT, MIIT, and athletic based recovery training. No matter the needs of a client I am confident in the ability of myself and my training staff to find them the results the clients aim to achieve.”
“I am extremely happy to be a part of Max Fitness. They made a great decision to take charge of their own personal training, and I look forward to helping grow that community. I hope to know everyone that walks in the doors, so please feel free to stop me and have a chat!”
Be sure to welcome Drew to the team when you see him at Max Fitness and ask him how he can help you achieve your health and fitness goals! Learn more about our personal training specials, or contact Drew or the rest of our staff for more information.
