Dr. Andrew Cuiffo


Doctor Cuiffo grew up in Omaha, Nebraska where he was heavily involved in the high school marching band and riding his skateboard in his spare time. While attending the University of Nebraska – Lincoln to earn his bachelor’s degree he fell in love with strength and conditioning after a rugby teammate introduced him to the weight room. During a rugby match against a rival school, Dr. Cuiffo suffered an ACL tear and during the post-surgical rehabilitation process he experienced a profound realization – the body will heal itself given the right conditions! With a new found purpose, he quickly changed his major from engineering to nutrition, exercise, and health sciences with a minor in psychology. A new passion for movement and helping people would guide him to the chiropractic profession. This is where his love for strength training was born. Unfortunately, while training for a powerlifting meet, he literally broke his back during a deadlift in training. The pain was debilitating to the point he could not put on his shoes. Forced to withdraw from competitions for over a year, he began the arduous rehab process. Through hard work and some help from colleagues, he was back to lifting heavy and pain-free in a few months. At Life University he excelled in the anatomy and clinical skills classes, being appointed as a student instructor for these courses. He was also honored with being elected to lead the Sports Chiropractic Club at Life University where he had the privilege of sharing his advanced knowledge of movement and soft tissue treatments with other students. He completed his internship and residency at the prestigious Sports Chiropractic Institute in Smyrna, Georgia. He currently enjoys training at a local CrossFit gym 5-6 days per week and is training for the upcoming CrossFit Open.
