Meet Coach Andrew
My name is Andrew Kleinsasser. Sports, athletics and fitness are my passion. Ever since I was a child, much like other children, I have been involved in sports. Since 2003 I have been a part of the football community in Manitoba in some shape or form. Since then I have transitioned from player to coach to trainer.
I graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2015 with a degree in Kinesiology and I became a strength and conditioning coach at a premium facility. Through the years I have had the privilege of learning from some of the top minds in the industry of human performance. I have gained knowledge and experience training both athletes and general population clients of all ages.
I have specialized in training athletes in their off-season, specifically football, but have developed my abilities to program for all types of athletes and individuals. It is my goal to provide well thought-out, periodized and safe training programs to athletes and individuals of all ages and levels while still maximizing results in athletic performance.
Alongside NFL/CFL alumni, Lamar McGriggs (pictured far right), we provide an on-field training program that brings experiential knowledge and up to date training directly to our football athletes.
I was immensely impressed by Andrew's online fitness classes offered through the Safe at Home Manitoba program between early January and late March in 2021.
Every class started punctually, was well-organized and was presented in a manner that was both inspiring and thoroughly professional. Andrew's expertise showed through in the progressive design of his classes, his ability to provide three separate difficulty levels for every exercise and his helpful, succinct cuing. Somehow Andrew managed to rise far above the incredible challenge teaching a group class to a camera presents; his warm manner and encouraging coaching were easily experienced by participants despite the classes being online.
Not only was I personally motivated by Andrew to attend as many of his noon classes as possible (I missed a few due to work conflicts), but I experienced measurable improvements in my lower body and core strength, balance and gait speed. As a woman approaching my 6th decade, these gains are particularly important in helping me stay vital and healthy.
Thank you Andrew, and thank you to the Manitoba Government for funding this program.

“No citizen has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a person to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which their body is capable.”
