Andre's Personal Mantra/Quote
"We all have one body. Neglect it, and it will neglect you. Carry yourself with dignity, believe in your capacities, and become stronger."
The Last Word
"CrossFit has changed my life. I used to be an unhappy person. I worked long hours for a job I hated, drank, and felt completely like crap every day, I went through that cycle over and over, until one day I started doing mini metcons for workouts. I loved it. I feel in love with CrossFit, coaching, and human movement, which inspired me to chase my new passions. I quit my job, became educated in fitness and training, and continued to give my all.
Without CrossFit and the community that it builds, I wouldn't be here today as your coach, leader, and friend."
