LaCadre’s journey into fitness began with Kickboxing in 2013. Not much of an athlete, LaCadre was searching for a way to get into shape, release work stress, and build self confidence. Just 3 months later, he found himself competing as an amateur fighter and this is where his passion for physical conditioning began. LaCadre realized how beneficial combat sports were to his own health and wanted to pass what he learned to others. After coaching part time at boxing studios for years, LaCadre took a leap of faith in 2019 and became a full time group fitness instructor at Bash and Madabolic, while also coaching private sessions. These days, you can catch LaCadre spreading boxing knowledge and positivity to his clients, while also organizing weekly bike rides with his cycling group, Bike Gang Arlington.
