August Athlete of the Month- Jesus Andrade

Tell us a little about yourself and family- Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.

I grew up in a small town in Michoacan Mexico until 2006 when my family and I moved to Oregon. I have 2 older sisters and 1 younger brother. I went to school for a few years and got my associates degree from PCC in business. I have been working in manufacturing since I moved to the US. However, I would like to continue my education in welding to further my career. I am also interested in learning more about human and exercise physiology, so that I can coach athletes of many disciplines in the future like soccer, strength and conditioning and OLY lifting. I really enjoy coaching soccer as an assistant coach, and look forward continuing that after the pandemic is under control.

How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join? How long have you been with BCF?

I took my car to the mechanic and saw a group of people working out in the building across from the mechanics. So I called the number that I found online and Trevor called me back a few hours later. I  had played soccer for several years and was looking to get in shape after being a couch potato for a couple of years. It took me some time to get adapted to the US since everything was new, even the language. I've been a BCF member since 2015 I believe.

What is your favorite movement? Non favorite movement?

Non Favorite movement is bench press because my left shoulder is f***ed! Favorite movement, assault bike because it is so hard to walk after max effort after an all out sprint! 

What is one thing people would be surprised to find out about you?

One thing people would be surprised to find out about me is that I had dreadlocks before joining the box! 

What is your biggest motivation in life?

Biggest motivation in life is my parents. They have taught me that hard work and honesty are key to finding success and reaching any goals I might have in life.
