“I started my journey to fitness at the age of 12 practicing Martial Arts and gymnastics and competing in my first national Karate tournament at the age of 13 and becoming a Karate instructor at the age of 15.”
“Eat healthy, stay active, & enjoy life.”
“I love the name of this gym; Mindful Activity. Knowing WHY you’re doing a certain movement and creating goals that are specific to you is essential when starting a fitness routine.”
My motto is “Show up, listen and work hard” or “do crunches, not munches.” I also believe training should be fun and functional.
Live life strong and pain-free.
“Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t do.”
“Imagine an inviting space to steward and enrich your physical health…That’s mActivity”
