Andy Hanson, MS, DBC-1
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. So, I started Full Scale Fitness in 2014. I have my Masters degree in Exercise Physiology and Adult Fitness from The University of Akron. I currently teach two Kinesiology courses as an assistant professor at The University of Akron. In February of 2018, I traveled to Miami FL to study under the great Donnie Raimon and David Alexander and receive my Level 1 DBC certification. Donnie is Lebron James personal trainer and David works with hundreds of pro athletes (ex. Dwayne Wade, Von Miller, Victor Oladipo, Gary Woodland and more). I am 1 of 500 individuals in the world with the Level 1 DBC certification in Biomechanics and Human Movement. I'm an outdoorsy guy who loves to travel. I have a 4lb Yorkie named Kiwi and I got married to my beautiful wife Desiree in July of 2021. Life is good!

Alex Schwarz, RD, LD
I’m Alex Schwarz and I am currently a student at The University of Akron. I am majoring in nutrition and dietetics. I plan on becoming a Registered Dietitian here in Northeast Ohio. I became a personal trainer because I want to help people with both their nutrition and exercise. I’ve been training myself for several years now and it’s truly a lifestyle now. My favorite exercise is the bench press because it is a great test of overall upper body strength as well as mental strength.

Stephen Radonjich, BS
My name is Stephen Radonjich, and I am a graduate of Malone University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science Pre-Physical Therapy. I am a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) through the American College of Sport Medicine (ACSM) and plan to continue my education in the pursuit of becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I believe personal health and wellness is extremely important, and feel it can often be overlooked in our fast paced modern world. As a former college athlete, I understand how important it is to manage time and stay disciplined in order to find balance in the responsibilities of life and personal fitness. My goal as a trainer is to bring out your inner athlete, and be your most supportive teammate in the pursuit of achieving your fitness goals.

I am a third year student at The Ohio State University majoring in Health Promotion, Nutrition, and Exercise Science. I am also minoring in Integrative Approaches to Health and Wellness and i am an ACE certified personal trainer. Post graduation I plan to pursue my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. I was inspired to become a personal trainer because my high school cross country coaches had a very positive impact on me and my relationship with fitness!

Hi, my name is Stephanie Radonjich and I am from Akron, Ohio. I currently attend The Ohio State University where I am studying Exercise Science. I completed my level 200 yoga teacher certification in 2020 and am registered with the Yoga Alliance. I started practicing yoga for the physical benefits, but ended up finding so much more. The confidence I found through yoga, along with increased strength and flexibility, inspired me to begin teaching. I hope to give people the tools and knowledge to take their yoga practice off their mat and face each day with a strong mind and body.
Dylan Papali, BS
Hi, my name is Dylan Papali and I'm originally from New Jersey, where I lived up until the age of 6. My family then moved to Cincinnati and we stayed there for 10 years before we moved to Pickerington, and that's where I've been ever since. I received my bachelor's degree in Exercise Science from The Ohio State University, and received my American Council on Exercise (ACE) Personal Trainer certification on top of that. As good as it felt to graduate, I'm not quite done with school yet. I'm planning on earning a clinical doctorate (DPT) in physical therapy by the year 2025. I'm very passionate about fitness and helping others achieve their fitness related goals. I love meeting new people and hearing their story, as well as gaining fresh perspectives. My favorite hobbies include getting a workout in at the gym, playing basketball with my friends, keeping up with my fantasy football team, and blasting music in the shower. I have plenty of firsthand experience getting injured, and I know how it feels to be physically incapable of doing the things you love. That's what ultimately inspired me to go down this path, I want to help others to achieve their goals, big or small.
Varun Gopal, BS
I am a recent graduate of Ohio State University where I earned my Bachelor's in Exercise Science Education. I am an American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), and will be furthering my education by pursuing a Master's in data science. As a trainer, I know exercise is necessary to maintain your physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. However, I fully understand how challenging it can be to balance exercise with the responsibilities of daily life. It is my aim to help you find this balance and - hopefully - have fun doing it! When I'm not training or studying, I like to watch anime, play with my dog, shred on the guitar, and write music.
