Andrew, a native New Yorker, was first inspired by the world of weight lifting at the age of 14. He immediately fell in love with the sport and found ways to challenge his strength. After more than a decade of traditional lifting, he achieved his desired goals in back squats, seated shoulder presses, bench presses, and deadlifts. This sparked Andrew's curiosity and desire to expand his understanding on functional movement. Andrew was introduced to the C.H.E.K. Institute, where he became certified as a Holistic Life Style and Exercise Coach. Being certified through C.H.E.K. has taught Andrew the importance of incorporating proper posture, balance and assessments into all his workouts. Between his challenging CrossFit style workouts and rehabilitating exercises, Andrew can accommodate to a vast majority of client's needs.
