'After herniating a disc back in 2014 I tried many solutions: physios, acupuncture, other specialists, but nothing helped. Then I started working with Andy about 18 months ago. I've been pain-free now for more than a year. Training with Andy is the best investment I've made in my health. I would definitely recommend working with him.'
'I'm very happy with the training that I do with Andy... I'm now totally pain-free.'
'How lucky to have met Andy! For several years I had been suffering from back pain in the lumbar region. I had a series of lower back pain issues despite physiotherapy and regular physical activity. Everything got worse after my pregnancy, and I was starting to despair!
The Low Back Pain Rehab Program saved me! I learned to relieve my pain, to perform the right movements on a daily basis, to restabilize my back and to build my muscles properly.
I appreciated the professional follow-up, the presence and the involvement of Andy, all by video, simple and effective! Thank you!!! I recommend 100%!'
'I cannot recommend Andy highly enough! Despite being only 24, I suffered from poor posture throughout my adolescence and young adulthood. This, combined with hours spent working on a computer and incorrect form in the gym, led to a severe herniated disc injury. I felt utterly hopeless about being able to sit and work, let alone return to resistance training.
After consulting a doctor, undergoing X-rays, MRIs, and attending several costly physical therapy sessions that provided no significant relief, I decided to turn to Andy, the Back Coach.
Andy's expertise in the human body, along with his extensive knowledge and tailored approach, proved invaluable in helping me make a full recovery. He not only guided me back to my normal life but also helped me safely resume my resistance training routine.
Andy's unwavering support throughout my journey has been truly priceless. If you're struggling with back pain, don't hesitate to reach out to Andy - he genuinely is a miracle worker! Since my recovery, I have confidently referred many friends dealing with debilitating back pain to Andy.'
'I had been suffering from a sciatica for the past two years and despite seeing osteopaths and trying all sorts of pain killers and exercises, I never managed to get rid of it permanently. I got used to living with it, never feeling comfortable, waking up at night etc.
It had become so normal that I hadn’t even mentioned it during my intial consultation with Andy. However, during our first session he immediately noticed something was up. When he realised I had a chronic sciatica he changed my program to focus on that specific problem.
I still thank him every time we meet because not only did my sciatica disappear, but two years down the track, it has NEVER come back - even during pregnancy and after having a baby! So I would more than wholeheartedly recommend Andy for any health and fitness goal you are wanting to achieve.'
'I have known and worked with Andy for several years. He first helped me after my shoulder surgery a couple of years ago to regain strength and flexibility in my shoulder.
Recently I worked with him again because I had lower back pain (probably from too much home-office sitting during the confinement). Again, he helped me very efficiently providing daily workouts through his website, and follow-up video calls for updates on my progress.
Andy is a great listener and really tries to understand the client’s needs and then proposes a workout plan tailored to these needs. I highly recommend.'
'I have been training with Andy and his team for 8 years. Andy is an empathetic and supportive trainer who has created programs to meet my evolving goals.
I have gained strength and confidence through kettlebell training, soundly defeated persistent back pain through targeted exercises, and have set and met many, many fitness goals.
I would recommend Andy to anyone looking to positively focus on their physical and mental health and well-being.'
'I have been a regular client of Andy for 10 years. As a senior (81 and counting), I count on Andy and his team to keep me in top shape to manage the inevitable problems of aging.
Their program of regular exercise, good muscle tone, and a reasonable diet, all tailored to my age, body condition, and specific needs, may not help me live longer but they are definitely helping me live better!'
'I started working with Andy in January 2017, after having had foot surgery. Now I am strong, my balance has improved, and I no longer have problems with lower back pain.
Andy is very encouraging, which motivates me. I had not imagined that I could enjoy workouts before working with him. Now, at 65 years old, I am in better condition than I have been since graduate school!'
'My back has been pain free!
It's been great. Keeping up with regular walks at least twice per day and occasional workouts and really sticking to back hygiene, it's ingrained now.
Thanks for your help through this journey, it really helped to have someone who understood the problem - something that other physios I worked with lacked.
It certainly gave me confidence in knowing what movements and exercises are good/not good for me.'
'About 3 years ago, a friend of mine who is a personal trainer in Germany told me one of his clients worked together with Andy and was very satisfied about the collaboration. That’s how I came to meet Andy Marlow. I had at that point already had some experiences with personal trainers, but none of them gave me the results I was looking for. The program & the coaching Andy composed for me were made to measure.
After starting with regular one on one sessions I’m now able to follow my program by mail. I learned how the muscles in the body work, what are core muscles, difference between mobility & flexibility, how to strengthen the lower back, etc.
The beginning was tough as I never was a sportif, but as you are guided, understand the techniques of the different exercises, you quickly obtain great palpable results.
Andy is a great coach in every sense of the word who made a huge difference in my life. I thank him for that and I most certainly recommend him to all who are looking to improve their well being.'

'Much better with Andy and everyday exercise. My back is getting much better than before.'
'I’ve been working with Andy for about 3 years, three times a week. Andy’s work goes far beyond the traditional sports coach.
On the athletic side, he is a great professional with an eye for detail and perfection but his culture of the anatomy of the human body and its functioning allowed me to achieve two very related goals, better physical condition and the loss of weight.
I am happy to have met him.'
