Andrew Losik, Personal Fitness   Andrew is a NASM certified personal trainer and a former PGA Golf Professional. He currently trains clients from all walks of life and is committed to helping them reach all of their fitness, health and wellness goals even if that is to simply move and exercise without pain. "With all clients, strengthening the body while increasing mobility is our most basic approach to training. We will establish a strong foundation of correct movement patterns, and whether your goals are fat loss, increasing muscle tone, strengthening athletic performance or improving your core strength and balance, we can help you get there."  Research has shown that exercise, when coupled with psychotherapy, can improve overall mental health by reducing anxiety, depression and negative thoughts or moods. Exercise has also been shown to improve self esteem and social withdrawal and helps to improve cognitive function in many patients.
