Andrew Cranston’s passion for calisthenics and movement-oriented fitness ignited when he was confined to a wheelchair following a serious motorcycle accident. Overweight and out of shape as a young teen, he began a slow and steady exercise and dieting approach, but all progress upended after his near death experience at age 17 that left him physically shattered. Now 21, the Florida resident is not only doing all of the things his doctors said he’d never do again (such as walk normally), he spends his days executing impressive calisthenics moves and working as a mobility coach at American Top Team, a top-rated mixed martial arts facility.

Author of “Steps to Superman”, Andrew has received numerous accolades as a mixed martial arts fighter including: Knockout of the Night, Fight of the Night, Performance of the Night, Submission of the Night and even a 12-second Knockout. Inspiring others who were once in his position, he is “stoked” to be the light others might see at the end of their own dark tunnel.
