Andre joined our team in 2021 where he has been a constant source of upbeat energy and motivation for everyone in the gym since. Andre owned a business in Ohio before moving back to Buffalo with his wife and three kids where he worked as the healthcare coordinator for Greater Buffalo United Accountable Healthcare Network (GBUAHN). It was there that he gravitated towards their gym area and became a personal trainer there. When the GBUAHN gym closed in 2020, Andre sought to continue pursuing his passion of helping people and worked at LA Fitness before getting hired at Trabucco Fitness. He is certified in personal training through NASM and in Strong Zumba. In his free time, Andre loves spending time with his wife and their three children, practicing martial arts and listening to music.
