Andrew was born and raised in Ontario Canada, playing hockey, lacrosse and rugby as soon as his feet hit the ground. Through many years of competitive sports, he learned the importance of training hard, and having fun. After a serious knee injury, which he suffered during a rugby match, took him out of competition for over a year, he started to crave the intensity and camaraderie of training for a common goal again. He began coaching rugby shortly before his injury and found that teaching people new skills, and watching them grow into high performing athletes was extremely gratifying. While looking for cross-training equipment online, one summer for his team, he stumbled across Crossfit and has never looked back!
