2010 BEST Personal Trainer

Gregg D’Andrea

Like lots of trainers, Gregg D’Andrea combines resistance training and cardio. But his one-on-one sessions are remarkable for two reasons: His high-intensity spinning workouts are more lively than the usual grind, and his big, buoyant personality (case in point: his rapper-style moniker, Gstar) means there’s never a dull moment with this muscle man.

    So let me get this straight. You become a personal trainer in your fifties, give yourself a nickname ” G-Star” stolen from a jean company, then refer to yourself in the third person while executing exercises with painfully and potentially hazardous form.
    Five 1990’s chrome hearts braceltts adorn each wrist, a few silver chokers around your neck, 2 earrings for good measure ,sunglasses worn indoors mind you, and to top it all off a bandana to cover your bald scalp.
    Are you going to a costume party ” aaarrrrrrrrr matey” or are you a fitness instructor?
    The entire get up screams for attention which is extremely confusing given the fact that D’Andrea is built like a 12 year old pubescent teenage girl, with no hint of muscularity.
    Follow him on Facebook and you will be inindated with his poor nutritional advice that includes ton’s a fatty meats and no carbohydrates. A sure disaster for anyone looking for balanced health and wellness.
    Not to be outdone by his own dispensing fraudulent advice and dressing like a cross between Keith Rchards and Richard Simmons ,D’Andrea can’t help but blow his his own cover.
    Take a look at his i phone selfies lying in a hospital bed, again speaking in the third person about his hips replacements surgery.
    D’Andrea once pronounced that he ” kicjed butts from Frankfurt to South Beach? More like ” Bullshitting from Framingham to South Boston”.
    Oh. “spinning better naked” belongs to 90’s gym owner David Barton.
    Sorry G-Star.
