Andre Crews is a CrossFit athlete and coach at CrossFit Union Square in NYC. Andre has been a lifelong athlete but didn’t discover fitness as a profession until he escaped from the golden handcuffs of corporate banking. Andre earned his PT Cert in 2012 and fell in love with the fitness industry. Along the way he found CrossFit and participated in the Open. After his first taste of competition he was hooked and changed his entire training regimen to prepare for the following year. Hard work paid off as he placed 236 out of about 14,000 athletes in the North East Region (up from 2309 out of 9,000 in 2013). Andre is determined to continue this upward trend and make it to Regionals in 2016. In addition to CrossFit, Andre has participated in endurance challenges including the Super Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, and Men’s Health Urbanathlon. Andre has his BSBA in Finance from the University of Pittsburgh, his Personal Trainer Certificate from AAAI-ISMA, and he is a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and certified Coach through Precision Nutrition.
