In a sea of galactic-kitten-print spandex, spangly-sequiny-Space-Age shorts, and Minion goggles, he may not have stood out at the Smackdown for his sartorial choices. But where he may have lagged in style (in a manner of speaking) points… you bet he made up for in ferocity on the competition floor!
This edition of CFDC Athlete Spotlights features the indefatigible Andrew F., a 6am regular at 14th Street who has, in recent weeks, celebrated not only 1) a successful Smackdown but also 2) becoming a dad! Congrats, Andrew, on the birth of your new baby girl!
With a background in triathlon, Andrew is a speed demon when it comes to any kind of running workout, as well as a muscle-up champ who can string reps together for days. Besides setting times to beat, you can always count on him for an encouraging word — and your daily dose of 6am snark and sarcasm. Read on to hear more about Andrew’s experience with CrossFit DC, and what he has in common with Ben Stiller.
