Andy Speer has the most interesting life I have seen. He was born and raised in Connecticut. He was into gymnastics from a young age, and he joined pole vaulting later, which saw him through to the University of Miami.
He says that outside vaulting and gymnastics, he had low self-confidence stemming from a skinny outlook, with the ears protruding. Worse still, his face was ever covered in acne as a teenager. Quite a surprising revelation for the highly admired fitness trainer and model, right?
So, what changed? When Speer went to college, he got to eating more and working out more strength training. Within two years, he had already shot from 140 to 175 pounds.
Did I mention that Speer has a life full of surprises? Despite being at 175 pounds, which is quite light for a heavyweight lifter, by the way, he participated and completed the Beast Challenge. It consists of a weighted dead hang pull-up, a pistol squat, and finishing the single-arm overhead press using a 106kg kettlebell. And damn, he finished the challenge!
Speer also participated in Men Fitness DVDs by Shaun T, which became bestsellers at the Beachbody fitness platform. He is a renowned fitness model who crowned his career with a win in 2014 after participating in Men’s Health competitions.
On top of these, the once-skinny personnel became sought-after personal fitness trainers in New York City. It was during his time as a fitness trainer that Peloton took note of Andy Speer.
