REDCORD® ACTIVE SPECIALIST
Andy Kohrell graduated with a degree in Clinical Science and spent time working in both a family physicians lab and hospital labs, before becoming certified in massage therapy.

With a growing understanding and appreciation for hands-on, whole-body work, Andy returned to school, earning an Educational Certificate in Fitness Instruction from UCLA in the late 1980s. While working as a personal fitness trainer in San Francisco, Andy completed training as a BASI Pilates® instructor and began incorporating Pilates into his clients’ workouts, teaching both mat classes and private equipment sessions.
In August of 2003 Andy joined then fledgling Core Conditioning as a Pilates instructor. He has since earned certifications in Gyrotonic®, Redcord® and CoreAlign®. Andy is one of only 14 trainers in the US to carry the distinction of RedCord® Active Pro Specialist. As a part of the Core educational team, Andy teaches both Redcord® Active/Corrective and CoreAlign® workshops to trainers and healthcare professionals.
