A former gymnast, circus performer, former Gymnastics coach, today Andrew runs a business consulting strength and conditioning for athletes (mostly gymnasts).
He has some radical ideas:
- Zero competitions until 10+ years of age.
- FUNdations. Training with the goals of physical & motor development, but where Gymnastics routines are not the main goal.
- Prioritize the “extras” (e.g. nutrition, hydration, rest, academics, and mental performance, …)
- Have fun and enjoy the process over the progress
