AB enjoys black coffee, watching Action/Adventure/Fantasy/Sci-Fi films, the Oxford comma, and waxing poetic about functional shoes. He suffers from a slight Napoleon Complex and some sort of attention deficit disorder, which he credits to his ability to teach multiple people at once. Speaking of which he’s a big fan of Napoleon pockets.. and pants with four-way stretch.. and shoes. Did we mention that?
Andrew’s fitness journey started in high school with Sports Medicine. After moving to Seattle he attended the pilot Personal Fitness Instructor program at Ashmead College in 2006. He landed a job at a “big box” gym where he moved up to Fitness Management and built a reputation doing “weird shit” like full-depth back squats and snatches. That gym valued sales over members goals, so he left to start FCF with a client inside a storage unit. That was almost a decade ago.
Now you can find him coaching Olympic Weightlifting at 6am and various CrossFit classes throughout the week.

the Tonytail™, the tagline: “I’ll make you famous,”. Hailing from the sunny state of California, his aerospace career brought him up to the NW where he trained with AB all the way back at FCF 1.0 in 2008. The two of them then decided to reopen up Foundation CrossFit in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle with a new game plan and new purpose. Because FCF isn’t just a gym, but a think tank meant to eventually change the world!
Tony started his fitness career as a young buck needed to relieve the stress of the day job, and to supplement his volleyballing, surfing, and general beach bumming. He started CrossFitting in Huntington Beach until work moved him to Seattle.
Now you can find him operating the gym and rebuilding our website while preparing for his first olympic weightlifting meet!
