Symmetry Fitness have a range of qualified and experienced fitness trainers across the lower north short of Sydney. Lead by Symmetry’s founder, Andrew Fisher, this team is focused on helping each individual achieve their personal fitness goals.
Andrew has been in and around the areas of health and fitness for most of his life. At school he played almost every sport on offer, to varying degrees of ability and success, especially if it meant a day off school. From rugby to rugby league, basketball, volleyball, tennis, golf, cricket and more.
When he left school and wasn’t sure what he wanted to do in life, he fell into the building industry. A good experience but not really a passion. Sport was still his main focus, and most of his time spent away from the worksite was chasing two ambitions; becoming an elite fencer and modern pentathlete (dreaming obviously of the three musketeers). He spent his income fueling his dream to live and fence in Europe. Eventually he was selected to represent Australia at the World Championships and other international events around the world.
Two years living in Hungary and other parts of Europe taught him what it takes to succeed in top-level international sport. While he loved every minute, the harsh financial reality of amateur sport eventually had an impact.
After several years, and several jobs back in the building industry, he realised he needed to follow his heart and return to the world of health and fitness. So he became a personal trainer.
Andrew has worked in larger gyms, owned award-winning fitness studios, worked as a sales manager for a swanky Sydney CBD fitness club, and the list goes on.
