I began my physical fitness journey at the age of fourteen. I wanted to achieve something that no one could take away or take credit for. I had been looking for something to give me a purpose. A sense of being someone, not just some thing. I did not grow up with any positive role models. I adapted to what was around my world. I used Bruce Lee and Lou Ferrigno as inspirational tools to put me into a direction and on a path. One of my most important Bruce Lee quotes is “Having no way as way and no limitation as limitation”. I never thought I could not do something. I would just try, and if I could not do it, then I would simplify the movement until I could perform the motion properly thus giving me a platform to start and which to grow. Everything was possible, no fears or doubts just opportunity to try something new. Never classifying something as a success or failure. If you are willing to try anything, it is the ability to try that makes it a success without knowing it.
Fitness to me is like nature. Everything must grow and blossom. Evolution is key to human life and we must embrace change good or bad because it is a step forward. Learn from the past, appreciate the present and look forward to the future for what it holds.
My gift to anyone (friend, client, loved one) is the ability to help you become what you want. Letting you believe in yourself the way I believe in you. Life is full of choices. My job is to stand by your side through each step of the way encouraging you to take another step forward.
Let fitness be your friend and you will never be alone.
