Personal Wellness – Mollie Papen-Eatinger Testimonial
I am writing this letter as a personal reference for Mr. Andrew Garrison. I have known Andrew for twenty years. At the time of our meeting, I was working on a Rotarian project and Andrew volunteered to accompany his father, also a Rotarian. At that young age he showed amazing leadership abilities. Since that time Andrew has become a Rotarian and we have worked together on several community projects. I am constantly impressed with his high integrity and ability to treat everyone with respect.
About a year ago my husband of 32 years died after struggling with Parkinson’s disease. As his care giver I was tired, out of shape and a bit sad. I picked up the newspaper one morning and there was Andrew in an article about his personal trainer career. I instantly knew that he was the person I now needed in my life. I contacted him and we started the important wellness work I so desperately needed.
From our first professional meeting three months ago, Andrew has been gentle, kind and concerned. He knows exactly the right questions to ask and when to ask them to be able to prescribe the best Wellness, Exercise and Nourishment plan for me. In all our subsequent meetings Andrew inspires and provides incentives for me like no one else has in his profession.
Working with Andrew and his high standard has given me fresh insight into my new life. My body is changing for the better. I am eating well and consequently feel so good. I feel my spiritually returning.
Workplace Wellness – Julie Fisher’s Testimonial
It is my pleasure to provide a testimonial for Andrew Garrison. Andrew co-facilitated Get Fit and Stay Well, an employee wellness training for Central New Mexico Community College (CNM). Andrew’s expertise in the field of wellness combined with his enthusiasm and commitment culminated in the program receiving a 97% overall positive evaluation by participants. We retained most of the employees who enrolled in the program and two managers requested Andrew’s contact information to bring him into their departments and talk to their employees about wellness.
I looked forward to working with Andrew to develop the 11-week agenda and more importantly, was fully engaged and motivated during each of the modules he presented. Andrew’s knowledge in the wellness field is impressive and be combines his knowledge and research with an energetic and engaging facilitation style. The program participants understood quickly that he is an expert in the field, and that he cared about them, resulting in highly interactive sessions where participants felt safe to ask questions and participate in discussions.
Andrew’s commitment to wellness is inspiring and it is our goal at CNM to continue working with him in providing exceptional wellness support and training for our employees. Any organization can only gain value by working with him to support well-being and wellness. Please feel free to contact me if you have any follow-up questions.

“BODYFACTS LLC presented wellness to my sales team as a bonafide business advantage. The way we feel, look and interact is dependent on how we play, fuel and reset ourselves”.

You said, ‘Energy is real. We will experience each other and each human interaction is unique’. It reminds me that I control my energy and what I share. It reminds me that human interactions and connections are gifts.
