"He who gains a victory over other men is strong; but he who gains a victory over himself is strong(er)" - Date Tate, EliteFTS
I am an educated, passionate health & fitness professional with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Exercise Science, concentrating in Sports Medicine. I have been personal training for 5 years and have experience working with a diverse clientele spanning from teenagers to senior citizens whose fitness goals range body composition changes to sports performance and injury prevention.
I have been accepted to the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at Bond University in Australia. This is a very selective program that only accepts 28 students per intake - with only 4-5 of them being international students. I am honored to be chosen for this program and am exited to study under the guidance and direction of the program head, Dr. Wayne Hing. The DPhty program commences in May and is an accelerated, 2-year program.
I am currently a member of the advisory board for the Personal Fitness Training program at Intellitec Medical Institute. I am involved in determining the direction, purpose and content of the PFT program. Prior to being a member of the board, I was an instructor for the program where I taught to multi-generational classrooms.
I am continually pursuing my dream of evolving into an innovator within the health & fitness industry and an inspiration to millions of people. I can turn this dream into a reality by dedicating myself to being a lifelong learner of health and fitness.
Health and wellness is a lifestyle that starts from within. To me, the physical product is a reflection of the internal workings. I believe in focusing on the balance between mental, spiritual and physical health and wellness. Many clients come to me expecting to meet their goals and change their lives by focusing solely on one piece of the puzzle.
I am blessed with the challenge and responsibility of teaching my clients the importance of overall health as a lifestyle, not a fad. It is extremely rewarding to see peopleâs lives open up and improve in ways they never imagined. I am able to work as a team with my clients to help them better understand and appreciate lifeâs most precious commodity;Â your health
I am dedicated to helping you transform your life by changing your thoughts, habits and actions one step at a time. Together, we will work as a team to bridge the gap between your current state of health and the life you dream of...
