About Me

_DSC6364-Edit

I am BodySensei Andy Grant. I am a Grenadian from St. Andrews. As a young man, I started running and fitness training with some friends in my neighborhood and would take part in any sport I could. I began boxing and went on to become a heavy-weight amateur boxer, representing Grenada at regional and international OECS Championships games, Pan American games, and the Commonwealth games. I traveled throughout the world, including to Manchester, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbuda, Antigua, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, Barbados, Cuba, Mexico, El Salvador, Colombia, Dominican Republic.

After boxing, I worked with UNICEF to build a youth fitness program and gained certifications as a youth boxing coach. I love working with children and continue to volunteer with the Special Olympics and other organizations.

Through my travels, I met and started training with world-class fitness instructors. For the last decade, I have been a personal and group fitness instructor throughout the Caribbean. Because I used to be a heavyweight boxer I know ways to build muscle quickly in the areas you want to, in a healthy way, in muscle building and body sculpting classes. I also am an experienced long-distance runner and have helped pace marathon runners, including 3 runners for the London Marathon 2009, a segment which was featured on ITV London.

Now, I am based with my family in New York City.  I enjoy inspiring and training a variety of visitors in fitness and sport.  What I love most though, is providing my unique BodySensei® combination workout -helping those who are prepared to work hard for good health and self respect . . .

    Hi Andy
    Sorry I didn’t get chance to say goodbye before leaving la source. Thanks for all the fantastic gym classes and for looking after us so well, I had an amazing time. I’m going to keep up the training and come back twice as fit next year so that I can do 5 classes a day! Naomi

    I personally feel that this one is the best workout for me.

  7. I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours these days, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely value enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.
