Andia is on a mission “to help people around world harmonize their bodies w/ their environments!” No gym required.

Traveling is something you’ve done quite a bit as of late. Why might people looking for fit trips want to travel so some of your recent destinations? (Grenada, Spice Isle; Grand Cayman; Redwood Forest, California; Santa Monica, California, and Phoenix, Arizona)

I’m inspired by the built environment and the energies that make big cities famous, but my first love is the natural world. I seek destinations that take my breath away, not necessarily because of the altitude but because of the sheer beauty of the vistas. Oh, and because of the workout potential of course! Grenada is hilly, quiet and home to a thriving triathlete community. On every occasion that I visit Phoenix, Arizona, I’m on the precipice of Camelback Mountain upon hours of landing at Sky Harbor International. A 6.5 hour drive West lands you in Santa Monica. There’s nothing quite like hiking in the mountains for breakfast and catching waves for lunch! The Redwood forest is a meditative must-visit. Feeling completely insignificant while standing beneath giants and yet empowered to share that feeling with everyone that you know or will come to know.

Your fitness spontaneity or as you say “get it in where you can fit it in,” is very unique. Where is the most random place you’ve decided to exercise?

Random is in the eye of the beholder! Footage of me working out in an East Harlem laundromat went viral online but I’ve also found comfort fitting in workouts at the barbershop, on the subway en route to work and in my kitchen while planning the week’s meal prep.

Spending most of your time in the Big Apple. Where can people go in NYC for a great workout with a view to match?

The Brooklyn Promenade has become a very popular destination for the active set. Views of the Manhattan skyline, East River and Governor’s Island prove good backdrops for those who love a workout selfie. Not to mention, the City of New York has done an amazing job transforming industrial blight into basketball, tennis and sand volleyball courts, roller rinks, seasonal swimming pools, expansive boardwalk, bike path and more. Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way!

How Will “WillDaBeast” Adams Beasted His Way to Becoming One Of Dance’s Biggest Influencers

Will "WillDaBeast" Adams

He’s elevated dance. His style is highly sought-after. You’ve probably seen a viral video already showcasing his ridiculous choreography. Will “WilldaBeast” Adams is our Fall 2017 cover and we are excited to share the story of such a dope guy with you all! He’s leaving a mark on the industry that will make it tough for others to make any better.

Growing up as a military brat was difficult for Adams. Moving around often, and not feeling a sense of belonging left him questioning his purpose, as he knew he was meant for more. Once he found his love for dance, he took a leap of faith, trusted his talent, and moved to Los Angeles, to become a professional dancer to artists such as Usher, T-Pain, The Black Eyed Peas, working with TV series such as GLEE, X-Factor and more. He’d later go on to build his dance empire immaBEAST that has global impact. His annual conference BuildaBeast Experience 2017 going on now, is hosting over 1000 participants daily, representing countries all over the world.

The energy Adams’ choreography brings is so infectious, you may find yourself watching his YouTube channel for hours, or deciding to try some of his choreography yourself – be careful though – we’re not responsible for any pulled muscles or sore joints that may come from trying to move like that! The fitness level he showcases is one to be admired!

Dance as a career, or outlet, certainly has its long-term benefits. But even dance as a form of cardiovascular exercise, or stress-reliever, can improve our overall physical and mental health. Scientific studies show that dancing helps improve our core, overall coordination, fight symptoms of depression, and can even keep our brains from aging!

Adams’ chatted with us about how he stays in great shape, what sets him apart, and what empowers him to be a beast!

Willdabeast Adams

What was life like for you growing up?

Life was confusing for me growing up. I moved around a lot of places, because I was a military brat. I lived in Virginia, Florida and Indiana for 12 years. I learned to love all people, try new things and was super involved with sports, as well as arts. But I always felt out of place and that I was destined for something more.
