What is Fit2Fat2Fit?
My quest to become the expert was challenging and grueling.
Yet now I UNDERSTAND.
I have become a better trainer and a better person because I have been there.
Because I have been there, I want to share with you what I think is the first step to a healthier lifestyle.

Who is Drew Manning?
