 Hillary’s transformation journey started in our 8-week program. Her dedication and hard work to her fitness paid off with a total body fat loss of 3%. Hillary realized Training for Warriors was more than just about exercise, It was about transforming the whole person from the inside out. During this time, she had a personal struggle to cope with. Through her training she found strength and her ‘inner warrior’ to get through a difficult time; also knowing that the TFW community was there to support her. Hillary returned to training, determined more than ever, to reach her goals. Within six months, she surpassed her original goal and is now ready to reach new heights.

Your daily caring, positive approach encourages me that I am worth it. You have made it your business to custom fit a workout for my crazy schedule and lifestyle. you have taken the time to help me set  reachable goals and have worked on a plan to get me to those goals.  You have inspired me to commit to consistently showing up. I really feel your La Familia spirit there constantly!

I also can’t say enough about your small group workouts.  I have learned that form is everything when it comes to proper weight training and exercise. By keeping theses classes small you are able to watch us closely so we get the max out of the workout and avoid injuries. The classes are intimate enough that everyone gets to know each other and inspires one another to do their best.

In just 5 months my body has really changed in ways I have never thought possible. My body proportion is much more even; it’s the first time in a long time that my hips have shrunk. I have lost 16lbs and have really began to tone up. My energy level has gone way up, along with my self confidence. TFW has really helped recondition the way I approach nutrition and exercise. My family notices a huge difference in me. I am so happy that my kiddos get to watch their mom working hard to make herself better.THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU!

My biggest excuse over the past decade was that I didn’t have enough time to go to the gym. Two kids, full time sales job, soccer coach etc…I can tell you this straight from the heart, that a few hours a week training with Andreas and his team & having them educate me on proper nutrition I have lost over 30lbs, my strength is almost back to college years and I am down to married weight. Next mission is to get my weight down to pre-married weight. Literally for 3 hours a week I can’t find a simpler way to build muscle, strengthen my core and burn fat. I can run around with the kids at soccer practice, I can climb a set of stairs w/out breathing heavily. It’s simply amazing to me how much I have accomplished. Without Andreas and his team working around my nutty schedule, or getting me fired up to compete and work out I believe I would be heading right into a heart attack. TFWConnecticut is awesome and I would highly recommend Andreas and his team. If you give it a chance I am positive you will get results, make friends and have fun doing it. Thank You TFW CT!!!

I train 6 out of the 7 days a week. I train twice a day two times a week. The thing I am most proud of is sticking with it and not giving up. Three months ago I was going down a path of depression, food obsession and feeling the lowest I have ever felt in life.” “My body has transformed so much in these last 3 months. Just the other day I looked back at my pictures and I notice such a difference in the roundness of my face, the shape of my legs and arms. I knew that the three months would come to an end but I have come so far that this semester I decided to commute and stay with my Coaches and my TFW familia so that I would continue to get stronger and reach my goals. Thank you Debra Rydziel and Andreas Washeim and the rest of TFW for motivating me to achieve my goals, become stronger and make me feel better about myself both inside and out. I have more confidence than I did 3 months ago and I’m ready to achieve my list of goals. Thank you TFW Connecticut

Gina Plunkett

I first saw TFW on FaceBook in January of this year. I was looking at what I thought would fit my needs, I joined the 8 week Transformation program at first to see if it was something that I could do. Well let me tell you, it turned out to be more than I hoped for and everything I wanted. Debra, my TFW coach, made me feel welcome and accepted, which was important to me as I was nervous and not sure if could do TFW. Throughout my time with TFW and with the coaches, I began to feel more confident in my strength training. We also do hurricanes, Warrior Training, which the names itself say it all. TFW is not about just getting strong, it’s a way of life.  It has taught me about my nutrition and eating habits, how to get the most of my training and how to keep a positive mindset and stay true to my goals. Not only what I would like to achieve and accomplish, but it put me in a state of mind where I feel good physically, mentally and spiritually! This is the best I’ve felt in many years. My body has changed. I’ve firmed up, toned up, gained muscle, shed inches, lost weight and all around look and feel better. TFW is not only a place where I want to be, I want to come to work out and look forward to being here!!!!! The atmosphere and the coaches are the best!!!! They really care about us!!! To anyone who is not getting the results they want with their current exercise ir fitness or exercise routine, come down check it out for yourself! Come to the family at  TFWConnecticut and you will not regret it!

I have been a member of the TFW CONNECTICUT familia for a few years now. Coach Andreas and Coach Debra are very motivating and have pushed me out of my comfort zone. I am incredibly grateful for that. My confidence, eating habits, strength and speed have improved dramatically. I never imagined I would ever be able to deadlift or bench press as much as I can, not to mention enjoy trying to increase my speed for sprints. The environment is amazing. Everyone is very supportive, encouraging and welcoming. Whether you have been there for years or just starting out, you are always greeted with a smile and a high five. I highly recommend you check out TFW Connecticut. You will be happy you did!read more

This is my first ever review on Google EVER and with good reason because I never felt compelled to write one for any service and/or product. See I just turned 50 and have never really worked out in my life but have attended a local gym last couple of years. Typical workout days would be… walk in and tan walk out. Walk in and watch a movie and walk out. Walk in take a walk for 5 minutes and walk out…. Day in and day out. Something clicked in the mid-summer of 2018 and I knew it was time for serious change in my life. Not wanting to make another investment in a sports car or something that only lasted a little bit I wanted to INVEST IN ME. Did a quick Google search and found TFW and guess what they are the ONLY local google listing that I found with 10 (5) Star rating… (soon to be 11) knew I was onto something. Called their number and Deb picked up and asked me to come down at talk to Andreas…. So I did. As soon as I walked in I was thrown back to the old movies of Rocky and that music started playing in my head. This place smelled good not like the old gym or a box of smelly used socks. I felt like I had just come home after 50 years. I was introduced to Andreas the owner who has a smile that can warm the coldest of hearts. I explained I have never really worked out and did not know anything…. I said and I quote… “rebuild me in your image”. And you know what it was more than I could have EVER hoped for. Changes in my life are to many to mention here but in brief…. Better sleeping patterns, better mental stability, better eating habits, better endurance and so on… my body is changing along with my attitude and mind. If I don’t go for just 2 days my body and soul are craving another workout. 5 days a week and 4 months later I AM the changed person I was looking for. No words can explain only massive change in my life on ALL levels. Andreas and Deb work as a team to effortlessly bring the best out in you in every workout. From old school kettle bells to state-of-the-art technology these dynamic duos are on top of it. They are truly what Rembrandt was to the art world a couple centuries ago… I would HIGHLY recommend this team if you really and sincerely are ready for true and lasting change in your life… You honestly have nothing to lose and yet everything to gain.read more

I love these guys! They really know their stuff. Small groups, not like the big impersonal gyms. Everyone here knows each other. I needed to get in shape for a climbing trip and this place was ideal. For me it was One on One training twice a week and training with group classes twice a week. Best shape of my life in short order.read more

I have been part of TFW for a little over a year and I can honestly say its life changing. Deb and Andreas are so supportive and encouraging in everything we do. This is not a gym where you go and jump on a treadmill and walk through a workout, this is a community of people who will encourage you and cheer you on when you feel like you want to give up, even if you haven't met them before everyone here wants to succeed and wants you to succeed. One of the best parts is we all work at our level, yes we push our limits every time, but Deb and Andreas know if what you need. I had to limit myself due to a medical condition and they were so supportive. I used to hate to work out and now I look forward to all of my workouts!!read more

There are not enough words to express my gratitude to the members of TFW CT. This wonderful group came together and held an amazing fundraiser for my grandson Easton. Easton was born with a heart defect and required a heart transplant that he received at only 9 weeks old. He spent 6 months in PCICU. The financial strain on my daughter and family has been astronomical. This wonderful group came together for a family that is all the way in Florida and put on an amazing fundraiser that afford my daughter months of Easton's medication and the special car seat they so desperately needed. This group doesn't just train the body they train the heart and lead with theirs. Take a moment of your time to check out the amazing training they do and they amazing charitable work they do. You will not be disappointed!read more

When I was given the diagnosis of Parkinsons disease A feeling of defeat, and almost hopelessness soon took place over my body which I felt was no longer my own. The frustration of the feeling that I would soon slowly lose function over many of the movements I had taken for granted my entire life. A month ago; however, my life took a dramatic change, for the better. I was introduced to Andreas and Debra at TFW through an ad I had seen on Facebook, and I immediately went in for an initial evaluation. From the minute I walked in the door, I felt comfortable. After explaining my situation, he even gave me a guarantee that with a combination of proper nutrition and exercise I would finally regain control over the disease that I had thought was victor. With a combination of mental, physical and nutritional coaching I was given the opportunity to reverse my situation. I really felt the sincerity behind Andreas and his genuine want to help me seek the positive in a difficult situation. So far within a month, I have increased my stamina, my tremors have subsided, and my energy level has doubled. For anyone struggling and feeling hopeless, I would strongly recommend Andreas and TFW for a free consultation. Sent from my iPhoneread more

I have only been at at TFW Connecticut for a little over four weeks now and I can already see such a difference. I have become a lot stronger, I have truly been motivated to go 5-6 days a week and always get a great workout. I have always struggled getting the motivation to go to the gym and then when getting to the gym I have no idea what I was doing so I would be so discouraged and embarrassed I would quit. TFW has truly become a home for me, and I have only been there 4 weeks. Andreas and Debra have been very motivating and very patient with me. I am truly glad that I found a gym, where I not only learn things everyday about myself, but have people who motivate me everyday! Thank you so muchread more

But I have never had an experience where I loved a gym so much that it's not a struggle to go there, but a want to be there. The staff is great and always willing to work with you and adjust any workout so that you can reach your full potential! The people there are wonderful as well! When I'm there I feel like a part of a family, everyone is always willing to help you and support your journey to achieve whatever goals you have set for yourself!
