Andrew Deutsch 

Head Coach / founder

With 5 years+ of experience in high intensity fitness practices, Andrew began to want more and more just to help other people get fit and have fun doing it. It started when one friend visited his garage gym, then another, then another. Those humble beginnings have now blossomed into a full-fledged gym with many amazing clients. The gym has grown as well gaining new equipment and capabilities every month. Andrew is proud of the #Nerdstrong community that's been created and is constantly on the look-out for new knowledge, new achievements and new loot to pillage and share with his clients.

DAVID NETT

Coach / Partner

In 1985, 12-year-old David was invited to play Advanced Dungeons and Dragons with a new friend he’d met at the Regional Science Fair (where he won the Air Force Special Award). It was the final seal on a life of nerdery, and he never looked back. He’s spent his life dreaming of being a lot of things: astronaut, novelist, theoretical physicist (like his hero, Dr. Feynman), screenwriter, game designer, comic book artist, animator, actor, filmmaker. But if, at any point along his journey (prior to two years ago) you’d have told him he’d be a fitness coach, he’d have been flabbergasted. Yet, here he is: the original #nerdstrong Nerd with the d20 tattoo, fit and healthy for the first time since his early 20s (a thousand years ago), doing his best to help other people like him find a place for health and fitness in their gloriously nerdy lives.

Favorite Fitness Moment:

  • No longer needing an inhaler to run a mile.

Andrew Seely

Coach / Partner

Andrew is proud to be able to stand alongside so many inspiring nerds, geeks, and all around awesome people who belong to our community. When he’s not leading a Star Wars RPG or playing too many board games, he can be found most everyday in the gym. More than anything Andrew is encouraged seeing our members make progress every time they step into the gym whether they realize it or not. Each of us are on our own journey, luckily we do not have to go at it alone. We are #NerdStrong.
