Andrew Abernathy is the owner and operator of Focal Fitness. He grew up in Gainesville, GA and then attended the University of Georgia where he received a B.S. in Exercise Science. Andrew is a certified Personal Trainer with extensive work with post rehab, sports specific, and weight reduction clients. He also is a certified Super Slow© instructor. Andrew’s intensive academic study of anatomy, exercise physiology, kinesiology, biomechanics, fitness screening and testing, training principles and techniques, sports injury, and motivation, allow him to offer clients highly researched and tailored fitness programs.
Andrew chose to become a trainer because he has a passion for educating and helping people achieve healthy, active lifestyles, and creating real and lasting change. This work is the culmination of a life of athletic training, a tailored college education, and his entire work experience. Some of his objectives are to encourage people to make exercise a part of their lifestyle, through motivation, teaching correct technique and improving strength, coordination and balance. The professional challenge of creating effective workout routines that fit in with a person's unique lifestyle, schedule, and needs is what he strives to achieve for each client.
Outside of training Andrew enjoys running, camping, hiking, golf, Univ. of Georgia football, just about anything on water or in water, and socializing with friends and family.
