How I Built a Passionate Career at Vertex Fitness – Andrew Connors, Trainer Diary
My name is Andrew Connors, and I was born and raised in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. I recently graduated from La Salle University with a B.S. in Business Administration and a focus in Business Analytics. My passion for exercise and fitness actually started early in my life in elementary school when I was chosen to participate in a county wide-fitness competition. Because of this, I have grown my love and passion for exercise and training throughout my life. Pursuing my personal training career with Vertex Fitness has been one of the best decisions I have ever made!
Getting to Know Me
I am one of four children including a 26 year-old brother, a 21 year-old sister, and an 18 year-old sister. I love the sport of soccer, and have been playing my entire life. Consequently, At La Salle University I played on the Men’s Soccer team for all four years. I received many accolades as a result, including the Most Valuable Player Award, Atlantic 10 All-Conference Second Team Award, and a Philadelphia Soccer Six All-Star Award. When I’m not working or playing soccer, I enjoy spending time with my family and spending time at the beach.
I recently received my Personal Trainer Certification from NASM and have been in training as a personal trainer on the Vertex Fitness team under Dwayne Wimmer. Dwayne possesses a wealth of knowledge as a well-respected leader in the fitness industry. While under Dwayne’s direction, I have completed lessons on training protocol, sales and marketing, customer service, and success training. Because of this, I have found this to be unique to any type of curriculum or training that a certification program could offer you.
The Vertex Fitness Difference
With a variety of studios available to practice my passion, Vertex Fitness caught my eye as the best place for me to build a lifelong career in the industry. The amazing clientele here at Vertex Fitness really believes in the system that we teach. That’s because effective, efficient, and safe strength training is the Vertex way! It’s amazing to get to work with such great people every single day. I look forward to a long career at Vertex Fitness.
