Meet Andrea Marcellus
and the 5 Life Strategies
behind every AND/life™
product and service!
15 years ago, Andrea began tossing out shoulds, conventions and expectations to develop a more rewarding approach to both fitness and daily life. The Result?
5 Life Strategies that level up your life as a whole by cultivating
strength and calm – both physically and mentally.
The opposite of a one-size fits all approach to wellness, Andrea's strategies are designed to help uncover YOUR BEST SELF and put you on YOUR BEST PATH forward and upward.
Practice Personal Authenticity
Getting more out of life means knowing who you are, what you like and how you excel so you can use your strengths unapologetically and to your greatest advantage. But personal authenticity isn’t just about who you are... it’s also about who you are not. Life gets cluttered by others’ expectations, creating confidence- eroding areas of supposed “lack” or “shortcomings” in our minds about ourselves.
While continuously working on our “less than best” qualities is a must, true freedom comes from creating positive parameters through self-knowledge. The key is to check in daily about your true nature and desires: how did you spent your time, what made you feel happy, when did you feel most like yourself, when did you feel like you were trying to be someone you’re not? Recognizing and then honoring the patterns that emerge from your daily answers will help power your life forward.
Fitness & Wellbeing Expert and Author
Andrea’s mission is to help you climb out from under your to-do lists to discover what you’re truly capable of becoming – and have the time to make it happen.
I was a life strategist and fitness expert with 25 years’ experience and clients on a waitlist, and also a writer, actress, parent, friend and person just like everyone else who struggles to be and do all that they feel capable of… and still have a respectable social life. In other words, I get it.
By the time I’d finish each day, I was pretty drained. Seriously, where does the time go? Not to mention energy, money, and our waistlines the morning after we eat a bowl of pasta or indulge in a brownie (or three) which used to be not a problem… I know you hear me on this.
Daily life has a way of becoming more of a workout on a treadmill than a walk on the beach. Even if you enjoy both, too often you don’t get to choose. And you find yourself doing the “big sigh” at the end of every day – that unconscious, deep breath our body forces us to take to try to lighten the weight. And yet still we feel tethered. Unable to dream big anymore because of practicalities and honest exhaustion.
The code I developed to lift myself -- five learnable principles – moved me beyond a “to-do list” life to a “what do I want to do” lifestyle. And that idea – that our lives are still in our own hands, a matter of choice, and that we are, in fact, in charge – is the first step to feeling lighter both physically and mentally.
