​Welcome to Nice Guy Training!
I’m head fitness guy, Drew Surinsky - exercise physiologist, triathlon coach, swim coach and strength coach at your service.  I keep my client load and groups small so that I can provide individual attention.
I've been involved, as a participant and instructor, in health and fitness most of my life. I love it so much that I stopped practicing law to pursue an MS in Exercise Science and seek advanced certifications in Parkinson exercise, swimming, triathlon and conditioning. I use an eclectic approach - a mix of things I've picked up, combined with current coaching and exercise literature.
