About Justin McAndrew & Meghan Downs

Hi! My Name is Meghan Downs. I have been involved in fitness and athletics my entire life. I received my B.S. in Exercise Physiology and started my career in the fitness industry in 2005. I trained many clients and loved being able to impact so many lives. As with anything, life gets in the way, and things change. I changed jobs and started a family. My passion and career went on the back burner. Being a new mom, I started to forget who I was. I still walked and did low impact workouts, but nothing made me feel alive like the workouts I used to do. In August of 2016, I joined a Fit Body Boot Camp to spend more time with a friend that I never saw. I was addicted from that first class. The intensity, the drive, the camaraderie, and the motivation were just a couple of things that kept me going 6 days a week. I woke up every morning with a passion, and I felt like ME again. Fit Body Boot Camp brought that passion back and became part of my life. I always looked forward to it. That’s when I knew that I wanted to be a part of this community and help people, just like Fit Body Boot Camp helped me.

My name is Justin McAndrew, and fitness has not only been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, but it’s also been an undeniable passion of mine for almost 20 years. I have struggled with low self-esteem and anxiety throughout most of my life, but I’ve always turned to exercise to combat those issues. It helped me through the trials and tribulations I faced, and I don’t know where I would be without it. Since I was a young man, my ultimate dream was to open my own gym and share with others the benefits of an exercise regiment and the self-awareness and confidence gained when you reach goals you thought weren’t possible. I worked for a company for 16 years, but last April I was informed that they were moving our southeastern office from Georgia to South Carolina. As a result, I lost my job. I was suddenly struck with the reality that everything I worked so hard for was taken away in an instant. I immediately reached out to my sister for comfort because I didn’t know where to go from there. For quite some time, she told me how much she loved Fit Body Boot Camp and that we should consider opening our own here in Georgia. I had a really good job and was afraid to take that risk, but at that point I had nothing holding me back.
