Andrea is our resident Kinesiologist and fitness coach. She joined it’s time! Fitness Results in January 2013, shortly after moving to Canada from Ireland and has never looked back! She feels privileged to work with the best of the best in the fitness industry.
She has always loved fitness and sports of all kind. She continues to play her favourite sports, Gaelic Football and Hurling, here in Vancouver and has been chosen to represent Vancouver all over North America and in Western Canada. She is a two time North American Champion and hopes to represent Canada in the Gaelic football World Cup in the near future.
Andrea was introduced to Functional Movement Systems and Kettlebell training by Sheila in 2012, both of which revolutionized her own training practices. In no time, Andrea was faster, stronger, and leaner, and to this day she continues to see changes in her own strength and performance. “Kettlebells have changed how I see movement. I love that they apply to all levels of fitness and ability.” In July 2015, she certified as a Strongfirst Level 2 instructor.
Andrea is fun-loving and passionate about inspiring people to become move active and lead a healthy lifestyle. She is particularly passionate about helping people overcome injury through safe, progressive movement coaching. She has a keen eye for detail and uses therapeutic exercise as a rehabilitative tool for ICBC claims, sports injuries and medical conditions. “I get the most enjoyment when I see people progress from being in pain, to being strong, happy and healthy.”
Andrea graduated from Dublin City University in 2009 with an honours degree in Athletic Therapy and Training. She is passionate about continuing her education and keeps up-to-date with the latest research in exercise.
