Trainer Spotlight: Andy Mendenhall

Tell me how you first got involved with Power Hour 360?

“I had a conversation with a personal training client and he asked me why personal training wasn’t my full-time gig for the moment. I didn’t really have a good answer for him and that evening I got an email about an opening at a new gym (ph360). So you could say it was either fate or the internet!”

DID YOU KNOW?

Fun fact: My coach during my professional career was widely regarded as “rugby 7’s Michael Jordan”

What has surprised you most about teaching at Power Hour 360?

“How fun the classes are.”

What might someone be surprised to know about you?

“I speak many languages and play many instruments.”

Tell me about something or someone who has influenced your passion for fitness and personal training?

“I loved all things fitness growing up because I regularly got to prove myself wrong about what I thought was impossible. My passion for fitness comes from pushing past mental barriers, and every person I work with honestly inspires me in their own way. Seeing people achieve more than they thought they could is incredibly rewarding. How could you not get fired up about that?!”
