Winter, spring, summer, or fall, you can usually spot him in his “tactical short shorts” or by following the trail of sweat …even when he’s not working out. Word is – he sweats under water.
Andi Davis is a fitness professional specializing in strength, conditioning, as well as MMA. She started her business, Train of Thought Fitness Inc. in December of 2011. Through training clients and herself she has witnessed the difference it makes to strengthen one’s mental fortitude. How she frames her programming and gets her clients to focus during their sessions changes the way they feel, not only at the end of a session, but how they tackle their day-to-day lives outside of the gym. True empowerment comes from changing someone’s perspective of their capabilities, allowing them to become physically and mentally stronger.
She is infectiously passionate about her field, and equally dedicated to anyone that wants to commit their time to trying something new for themselves.
Andi’s Certifications include: Pre and Post- Natal Specialist, ACE Personal Training Certifications, Crossfit Level 1, Krav Maga Level 2.
