Andrew Petrulis

Andrew has been in the CrossFit community since 2008. He assisted with the opening of two military affiliates worldwide (CrossFit Desert Lightning and CrossFit Undisclosed) and has been a CF coach since 2012 with thousands of coaching hours. He served his country as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician in the US Air Force for over 15 years. He has spent over 3 years deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan where his main mission was to disarm roadside bombs. He found CrossFit on one of those deployments. Due to the nature of his job, peak physical performance is required. Andrew considered himself fit until he did his first workout. He met “Angie”, a benchmark workout. After putting his body through a test it’s never met he went back for more. Soon he introduced more and more friends and became a coach. He found a passion for coaching and wanted to open a CrossFit affiliate. Andrew is the owner of CrossFit High Order and founder of High Order Strength and Conditioning.

Lisa Frank

 

Lisa is a Professor at Central Connecticut State University who was introduced to CrossFit in 2012 after walking blindly into a box that opened near her home. With this first CrossFit experience she was immediately hooked, enjoying the constant variation in workouts and the sense of community that is present at every class. After trying every fitness regimen out there, Lisa finally found a fitness program that challenged her both physically and mentally. Through those challenges and the sense of community, CrossFit kept her coming back for more. Lisa finished in the top 300 worldwide for the 2017 Masters CrossFit Open. Her goal is to make the top 200 for 2018 and someday compete in the CrossFit Games.
