The founder of Body Manors and an AFAA-certified trainer, Andrew LaRochelle packed his metaphorical suitcase with New England enthusiasm and kinesthetic authority when he moved to South Florida to lead group fitness classes at Body Manors. He specializes in teaching core-toning yoga for beginners and advanced practitioners, and also promotes the roasting of calories during cardio kickboxing and dance aerobics based on moves from salsa, hip hop, and “there’s a bat in this room.” Before opening Body Manors, Andrew trained his brain at the University of North Florida and UMass Boston, where he earned a master’s degree in public affairs. The minimalist studio in which Andrew plies his trade showcases a white interior bathed in natural light, which shines through picture windows onto hardwood floors.
