Save your money from gym memberships, let us bring the gym to you instead!
Andy Hanson, M.S., Owner
I started Full Scale Fitness in the hope to change people’s lives with my own two hands. I wanted to develop a new approach to personal training and keep the training, well, personal! It all started when I realized I was not utilizing my passion for fitness like I knew I could. I knew there was a new age style of training called “online personal training” but every company I viewed was lacking that personal touch.
I even had seen a few exercise programs from so called “fitness professionals” only to be disappointed in the basic program they provided. That is when Full Scale Fitness was developed.
After building programs for people, I noticed that many were doing the exercises from the comfort of their own home. This is when I developed the in-home portion of Full Scale Fitness. I figured that they would benefit from me being there in person and sure enough, people thoroughly enjoy it! People loved the concept of getting fit in their own living room.
Here at Full Scale Fitness we believe that everyone has a specific goal unique to them. We don’t believe that every guy in the gym wants to get bigger or every female wants to lose weight. We believe in a full scale variety of goals whether it is sport specific, weight specific, strength specific, etc. Whatever your goal is, we can help you achieve it! That, is Full Scale Fitness.

Chris Loesch, B.S, CPT
I am from Ellet in the Akron area. My passion is exercise and active living. My hobbies include lifting, yoga, swimming, hiking, snowboarding, tennis, golf, and basketball. I love training because it allows you to become your optimal self, mentally and physically. I love to travel, especially to Colorado to snowboard, bike, and hike in the mountains. I make training fun and challenging, you will work hard but will feel great afterward!
I am a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). I have my Bachelor’s Degree from The University of Akron in Exercise Science and will be attending Mount Union University as a Doctor of Physical Therapy student in Fall 2017. I have worked as a Physical Therapy Intern at the PT Center for Sports Medicine in Fairlawn, OH and I have worked at The University of Akron’s Recreation Center as a Personal Trainer and Wellness Technician.
My goal in life is to help people gain confidence, energy, motivation, and inspiration through exercise. I take a holistic approach to training, optimizing the mind, body, and spirit. I want to challenge traditional approaches to pain-management, such as surgery and pain-meds, by using therapeutic exercises, stretches, and physical therapy to reduce pain and increase functionality.

Hi, I’m Lauren! I am a graduate from The University of Akron. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science, specializing in Strength and Conditioning. I’m CPR certified through the American Red Cross and have my personal training certification through the Aerobic and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). With being a multisport athlete and constantly training in high school, I fell in love with lifting and overall exercise. When I realized I could help others achieve their goals and educate them in the exercise field, I decided to further my education in Exercise Science.
Over the past few years, I’ve trained clients one on one, 20 person boot camps, coached volleyball, and worked with other youth athletes. I love taking on all these aspects of training and it helps keep me busy! If I’m not training a client or working out myself, I’m probably camping, on a boat, running a spartan race, or showing people pictures of my cats!
