Head COach and owner
Andre earned his BSBA in Finance from the University of Pittsburgh and spent the first 3 years of his career as a corporate banker analyzing financial statements and entertaining clients. 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 earning a fourth of what he made as a banker. He 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 fine tuned his coaching skills and took his fitness to a new level. And the community of members made it a genuine pleasure to work and train there everyday.
Although he works in Manhattan, Andre lives in New Jersey with his wife and golden retriever. He discovered an underserved CrossFit populace in Downtown Jersey City. He created 150 Bay CrossFit to bring a world class facility and community for the area.
