Andrew Weigel, BS, ATC, CSCS

Andrew graduated from Keene State College in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training. Throughout school he gained experience preventing, evaluating, treating and rehabilitating orthopedic injuries in the student athlete population at Keene State. Since functional rehab transitions into strength training he decided to take course work to enhance my knowledge in this area which motivated him to get his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist credential after graduation. Combining the knowledge that Andrew has gained from these different, but related fields allows individuals to become healthier and stronger while treating or preventing injury.
