Coach Andréa Maria Cecil Topper
• CrossFit Level 2 Trainer
• CrossFit Weightlifting Trainer
• CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer
• USAW Club Coach
“I accidentally found CrossFit as a recreational soccer player when I signed up for personal training in February 2008 at a Gold’s Gym in York, Pa. The trainer with whom I was paired put me through CrossFit workouts and led me to CrossFit York later that year. At the time — with little athletic background to speak of — I could neither do a pull-up nor get much more than 45 lbs. over my head. Today, I have multiple Olympic-weightlifting competitions under my belt. I earned a bronze medal at the 2013 National Masters Weightlifting Championships and qualified for Pan American Masters. As well, I’ve been a coach to two 2013 National University Championships qualifiers.
As a coach, my goal is for you to have fun while learning technique so you can excel at CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting or whatever your heart desires—and, of course, for you to become fast, explosive and powerful.”

MORE ABOUT ME:
I may have started doing CrossFit earlier than 2007 but eased into it. I’ve always been active but CrossFit was still pretty new. I did some classes on base taught by Skip Chase (Mt Baker CrossFit). It wasn’t until around 2009 when I began to train and ended up going to my first Regionals Competition.
I have personally trained friends & co-workers for years but I really enjoy instructing CrossFit now.
Also, I got fired from my last CrossFit gym because there was a strict rule about not dating clients. Broke the rule just once. I still blame my wife.
