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.

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.
