Andre earned his BSBA in Finance from the University of Pittsburgh and spent the first 3 years of his career as a corporate banker. He led an unhealthy lifestyle eating out and drinking nearly every night. The six pack he has today was covered in a layer of beer and bacon cheeseburgers. Eventually he had enough and left banking to pursue his passion. Andre spent his first year as a personal trainer at an LA Fitness, then spent 2 years at Equinox in Manhattan. But he didn't truly feel at home in the fitness industry until he joined the team at CrossFit Union Square. Surrounded by elite level athletes and coaches, Andre took his own fitness, nutrition, and coaching skills to a new level!Andre is a Certified Personal Trainer through AAAI-ISMA, a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, and a certified Coach through Precision Nutrition.
