MANUAL THERAPY

Meet Andrew

Andrew Poole began pursuing his passion of movement-study in 2009 during his sophmore year of college while studying for an English degree. Andrew was inspired by a friend to explore the different realms of fitness, and he eventually discovered the worlds of powerlifting, gymnastics, olympic-lifting, and CrossFit.


In the summer of 2012 Andrew graduated from college with an English degree, and further pursued his passion by enrolling in a program for massage therapy with the intention of one day becoming a physical therapist. In the spring of 2015 Andrew had his first volunteer experience at the CrossFit Regionals offering bodywork for the athletes competing. He knew then that this

was the direction he wanted to take his career, and completed his CrossFit Level 1 Certificate in July 2015. 


Since then Andrew has also volunteered at the 2016, 2017, and 2018 CrossFit Regionals, the 2016 CrossFit Invitational, and coached in multiple CrossFit boxes with athletes of all ages and backgrounds. He continues to blend the world of bodywork with the world of fitness using teachings from people such as his mentor John Balletto, attending seminars from Whitney Lowe, and studying the work Tom Myers has contributed through Anatomy Trains. Andrew also owes much of his success to RockTape for allowing him to be a part of the Athlete Services team at the CrossFit Regionals, and for providing him with a knowledge of Functional Movement Taping.


Andrew's goal is to educate his clients on how to better understand how their body moves, and how to integrate that experience into functioning better no matter what they apply themselves to.

 

Andrew is currently attending the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a degree pathway of Exercise Science. He is focused on the Clinical Option which will allow him to graduate in December 2021, and pursue his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in the Summer of 2022.
