Dissident Spotlight: Andre Goree

What made you first get into fitness?

I was always into sports. I played football, from Pop Warner, up through high school, college and semi-pro. After a knee injury when I was 28, I decided to stop playing football. Since I had always been in the gym for football, bodybuilding was just the next natural progression for this competitive spirit of mine.

What motivates you to show up every day?

Self-motivation! The motivation to get better everyday, no matter how little. I'm also hoping to become an IFBB pro bodybuilder someday, so chasing that goal helps a lot, too.

What are your health and fitness goals for the future?

To win overall at an NPC show, to become nationally-qualified and eventually become an IFBB pro.

What is your favorite exercise?

That's a tough one, there are so many good ones! Floor press is probably my favorite at this point for what it does and the results it's given me. I have never done it up until about a year and a half ago. I have made a lot of progress rounding out my chest through that exercise.

What made you choose Dissident Gym Wear and how do you relate to the DISSIDENT brand's message?

I loved the message that Gio put forward and the feeling of family between the ambassadors. The awesome-looking gym gear also helped a lot. I relate to the brand message by living it every single day at the gym!

What is your favorite Dissident piece?

It is hard to choose between the four stringers that I have, but probably the "Strike" tank top.

What is your proudest fitness achievement?

Stepped on stage and competing for the first time last year ignited a fire in me to continue competing!

What is your advice to anyone seeking to improve their health and fitness lifestyle?

Stay with it! Progress comes slowly, but surely. Don't give up after the first week or two. After a month you'll be LOVING it.

What is your favorite quote?

“A lot of guys have better genes but if you work hard and consistently, you can outperform them.” — Frank Zane

When it comes to achievement in any area of our life, there aren’t many things that hold us back quite like we hold ourselves back. Beyond our fear and lack of accountability, one of the biggest reasons most people struggle with accomplishing their goals is a lack of CONSISTENCY.

Better Than Yesterday

We overestimate what we can do in a day and underestimate what we can achieve in just a few years. We want everything quick, instant feedback/results/output and if our brain realizes it requires more time and requires continuous effort, we somehow make excuses and quit that thing. Later again when we hear some advice again the same process goes. To be better than yesterday it requires patience to adapt.

Gratitude is said to be the most powerful human emotion. It encompasses all other positive emotions such as joy, happiness, appreciation, and love. Gratitude has an incredible ability to alter moods, change perspectives, shift attitudes, and impact lives directly.
