Andrew Kauzlaric is the Owner & Head Coach of Resurgence MMA & Fitness. He discovered a passion for health & fitness at a young age of 13, when he decided to take his health into his own hands by losing weight and working out consistently. He grew up being relatively overweight and living a very unhealthy lifestyle. After a little over a year, he lost 60+lbs on his own through healthy eating and being more active/sticking to a workout routine. Over the course of roughly another year, he put on 50+lbs of lean muscle mass through a dedicated diet and very consistent workout regime.
Over the years, Andrew has put in hundreds upon hundreds of hours into researching/studying nutrition & fitness from the experts in the field and also learning from experts hands-on within the state and further. He is a Certified QRA Practitioner, which has to do with Kinesiology, the scientific study of human movement. He has been doing personal training and coaching at local CrossFit Gym’s for a number of years. He realized his passion for teaching early on, helping friends & family with personal weight loss goals, then taking it a step further by learning how to teach proper human movement and functional fitness by getting his CF-L1 (CrossFit Level 1 Trainer). He truly has a passion for teaching and helping people conquer their goals and break through mental/physical barriers daily.
Andrew has spent the past couple of years training with some of the best pro/amateur fighters in the state, while also coaching/training some of them to improve their conditioning for fights. He fell in love with martial arts right away, the profound effect it can have on your life and the confidence it can give you to know you have the skills to defend yourself in a real-life situation. His combined passion for teaching/coaching along with his passion for martial arts is how Resurgence MMA & Fitness was forged.
