Meet the Crew
Fit Crew is the collaborative effort of Niels Renzenbrink and Andrew Terman.
Niels and Andrew started working together in 2006 as personal trainers in a local commercial gym and quickly came to realize they shared an enthusiasm for alternative training methods that didn’t easily mesh with the regimented ideals of the corporate gym. Fit Crew took form in November 2010 when Niels and Andrew were offered the opportunity to move to a location with fewer restrictions, where their business subsequently flourished. As a result they outgrew the space and went in search of a location that could accommodate their growing number of clients. Fit Crew training does not rely on expensive, bulky equipment like traditional gyms. Clients use their body weight and functional movements to produce maximum results. The group training environment also serves to encourage a competitive spirit that gives participants a sense of belonging to an elite club.
