    Fitness Background:
    Born and raised on the island of O’ahu, HI, the outdoors was my playground. I enjoyed a multitude of activities such as surfing, hiking and camping and played various sports including football, soccer and archery. I learned at a young age that in order to perform at my best I would need to make health a necessity and fitness a way of life.

    Shortly after graduating high school I left my island home for sunny San Diego, CA where I attended San Diego State University (SDSU). While at SDSU, I religiously frequented my local 24 Hour Fitness. My dedication to fitness didn’t go unnoticed and the Fitness Manager personally offered me a Personal Trainer position on his team and I graciously accepted. I eventually became a certified personal trainer and worked with clients at 24 Hour Fitness for several years and even trained clients at their homes, offices and communities, much like we do at GYMGUYZ.

    I initially got into fitness for selfish reasons; however, as I gained more knowledge of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle I realized that I could also serve others including my family and friends. One of the primary motivators to my dedication to health and fitness also stems from the fact that my father has Type 2 Diabetes, my maternal grandmother passed away from Alzheimer’s and recently my maternal aunt was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Based on my research, there is a strong correlation between health and fitness (including nutrition) and the aforementioned diseases. I’m determined to educate and spread awareness of these debilitating yet preventable diseases.

    Fitness Certifications:
    I’m currently working towards earning my NASM Certified Personal Trainer certification.

    My Mission:
    What is your purpose? In addition to serving clients is there a greater purpose you look to achieve by operating a fitness franchise?

    Fitness Background:
    Growing up, my parents always kept me active, whether it be on the Track & Field & Volleyball Team. I always pursued dancing as another source of fitness and continue to do so. But as time & age came by I continued to be a membership at Big Box Gyms to stay fit. Fitness & health as always been an important part of my lifestyle regardless, if its outdoor activities like hiking, biking, paddle boarding, I always had the urgency to be active!

    My Mission:
    My mission is to educate, inspire and motivate clients to having a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle. On top of that having them feel comfortable in knowing we are the only Franchise Company etc. in our area that can bring them the results they need and be happy with it!
