Andree Hafley is a fitness expert for over 13 years and has trained and worked with many people through all stages of life: teens, college students, moms, menopausal, and active seniors. Her expertise is in Functional Movement and helping clients reach goals of mobility, strength, endurance, weight loss, sports or event-specific training, and more.

Andree became a Certified Prenatal and Postnatal Coach in 2017 because of her personal experience going through pregnancy, postpartum, and cesarean recovery. She was shocked at the lack of Perinatal support, guidance, and reliable resources in the fitness industry. Not to mention all the conflicting and confusing information online. She enjoys specializing in this population and helping moms navigate such an important part of their lives.

It is Andree’s passion and mission to help women and men move better, feel better, and be confident, strong, and healthy.
