Andrew Usher BS, NASM-CPT has always had a passion for fitness and movement. Growing up playing soccer and lacrosse instilled in him the values and importance that comes with playing a team sport.
After working in landscaping out of high school, Andrew decided to pursue a degree in horticulture at The University of Connecticut. At UConn, Andrew rediscovered his love for physical competition through the UConn Skydiving club team. His skydiving team competed at the 2013 USPA Collegiate nationals, taking bronze in 4-way formation skydiving as well as gold and a Florida State Record in 6-way speed. The same 4-way team took silver at the 2014 Skyventure, NH, Wind Tunnel and Paraclete XP Wind Tunnel Meets. Forming a slightly different team, Andrew proceeded to the 2014 USPA Nationals, where his team took silver in intermediate 4-way formation skydiving.
After UConn, Andrew took a job in his field as a tree climber, only to realize that the best part of his day was finishing work and going to the gym. After a year of tree work, he quit and enrolled in Branford Hall Career Institute’s personal trainer program. Through the program, Andrew received his National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer credentials. 7 months later, he became an intern at RTS and soon thereafter became a member of the team.
Andrew is dedicated to helping everyone at RTS to become the best they can through proper and pain-free movement.
