Knowing your physiology, the very science that makes you who you are, is the best thing you can do to optimize your health, bolster your performance, look and feel your best, and enjoy a longer and more fulfilling lifespan.
My dedication to this field derives from a selfish place born out of necessity before it became the selfless zeal I’m known for across the world. It was through my health journey (mainly battling ADD and ten years of Adderall dependency with related side effects) and love for the scientific method that I found my way.
Eventually, with the right knowledge and mentorship, I stumbled upon an enhanced state of awareness between mind, body, and spirit where healthy intentions met actionable steps and lasting, positive lifestyle change. Today I call this “physiological intuition,” and to me, it’s a right that every human being deserves to thrive with, without having to battle themselves or pursue a degree to discover it.
Every day I spend on this planet, I get to learn about and create just a little more of the substance I wish I could have gotten my hands on earlier, for YOU to discover your science and optimize your life.
Overcoming Challenges and Embracing Growth
Transforming Health and Achieving Success
Just before his most challenging year of high school in 2014 (Junior Year), Andrés decided to take his health matters into his own hands. When he “needed it most,” Andrés quit the medication to prove to himself what he was capable of. With the help of friends and family, he doubled down on his health and practiced building new habits.
With a mind based in STEM and a love for athletics, Andrés became infatuated with the science of human nutrition and physiology as he learned to overcome his personal struggles. Roughly a year later, he had gained 30 pounds of lean muscle and grown more confident in himself and his image, scoring in the 99th percentile on the ACT without requesting the extra time he was eligible for, winning 1st place in Geometry as a Mathlete, receiving the Advanced Placement Scholar with Distinction and Florida Bright Futures Academic Scholar awards. He was soon accepted to his choice school, the University of Miami. In 2016, Andrés graduated Cum Laude with a 4.6 weighted GPA and became a Miami Hurricane the following fall.
