Q: When did you start CrossFit and what got you hooked?
A: I started CrossFit in 2015 while in grad school at LSU. I was looking for something challenging to do after finishing my last year swimming in college. After my first WOD, I sat in my car passed out unable to hold the steering wheel. I was hooked.
Q: What are a few of your current goals in the gym?
A: I’m working with Coach Becky to strengthen my upper body. So far, I’ve noticed big improvements and can’t wait to see what’s next. A bar muscle up would be nice.
Q: What are a few current goals OUTSIDE the gym?
A: Becoming more technically proficient at the piano, making more friends in Austin, meeting Stephen Colbert, and answering survey questions with aplomb.
Q: What is a fact about yourself that we wouldn’t guess to be true?
A: I don’t listen to much pop music (gasp). If you’re in my car, we’re jamming to NPR. Shout-out to my squirrel friend Ari Shapiro.
Q: If you had to sing Karaoke, what song would you choose and why?
A: It’s been a dream of mine to sing “Les Poisons” from the Little Mermaid. I am Chef Louis, mustache and all.
You’re the best, André! Never change.
