I am Andrew Berry, owner of Team BodyBerry. I have been coaching general population, fitness enthusiasts and athletes of all levels, from beginners to Olympians for 13 years now.
I was interested in bodybuilding from an early age and started training with weights when I was 11. I loved and excelled in high school and college athletics, namely football. I always loved the weight training that went with the sport. I started competing in 2001 and was hooked and knew I wanted bodybuilding to be a part of my life forever.
I attended the University of Vermont and received degrees in Dietetics and Nutrition and Food Science. Instead of going into research or a registered dietician program, I knew I wanted to work with people hands on and help them get results. I spent a number of years personal training while slowly building my coaching roster.
A turning point in my life happened when I met and started working for and with John Meadows. He was my coach, my friend and my mentor. I wouldn't be where I am without his guidance. I work on his www.mountaindogdiet.com site to this day still.
I competed in 19 shows in my career and was fortunate enough to win the SHW class at the Master's Nationals in 2021, earning my IFBB Pro status.
Two of my happiest moments in my life were when I helped turn my wife pro in bikini at the 2017 Nationals and my best friend Nate Spear pro in the SHW class at the 2021 Nationals. Both of these athletes were with me from day 1 and it just means something more to be there every step of the way.
Today, I am blessed to coach hundreds of clients each year in the NPC and the IFBB pro ranks.
