5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ANDREA LEE
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY OF TRAINING LIKE?
My typical day of training is grueling to say the least. I meal prep twice a week so that I can begin each day with a 90 min strength and conditioning session at about 9 AM. By 10:30 AM, I begin my first of two training sessions. The first is from 10:30 AM – 1 PM. I then head to the local high school track to run sprints followed by a timed 2 mile run. I take a lunch/recovery period from 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM. Then I train again from 4:30-8:30 PM. I do this Tuesday through Friday, and only train a half-day on Saturday and Sunday, usually from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM. Monday is my rest day. My training curriculum is very diverse. We are a large MMA Gym and have a full coaching staff that are experts in their individual disciplines. We train on everything from Muay Thai, Wrestling, Boxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The “Mad Scientist,” our head coach, is my husband, former World Kickboxing Champion, Donny Aaron and he puts it all together.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU AS A FIGHTER?
What motivates me as a fighter is that I feel that I have finally found something that I am great at. I am single track minded in my quest for world titles. I am driven by my own hunger to succeed at the craft that I have fallen in love with.
