Hey guys, Coach Andrew here at CrossFit Adoration; and I want to share my psych on fitness with you (Psychology happens to be my profession)! I believe that a healthy body is the key to a healthy mind, and with both you have the tools to be the best version of yourself possible.
My interest in psychology started at Penn State University. Here, I also participated in a variety of sports; two of my favorites being crew and rock climbing. In order to better share my passion for rock climbing with others, I earned a Single Pitch Instructor certification from the American Rock Guide Association and spent the summers guiding in the mountains.
After graduating Penn State, I earned an Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology from Lehigh University. I have been living in the area ever since working for the Colonial IU 20 as a school psychologist specializing in identifying and addressing academic, social, emotional, and behavioral student needs.
Now, I also enjoy the CrossFit community as an athlete and coach. Relatively new to this style of fitness, I quickly realized it’s benefits. Camaraderie, fun, personal growth, and all around well being is just the tip of the iceberg. Only if I could have found this community sooner.
Come and join us at CrossFit Adoration, see what we have to offer, and be on your way to becoming your best self.
Coach Andrew will be a great addition to our coaching staff starting May 1st! Check out our schedule to take one of his classes. You can also find him coaching CF Kids classes alongside Coach Kayla.
