Fitness Quote:
Learn your Body know Yourself!

Being physically and mentally fit is a very important part of living a long and successful life, remaining mentally healthy encourages people to remain physically healthy the two go hand in hand. I grew up play sports, I have played baseball, soccer at a very high level, track also at a high level. My passion is football I discovered my passion for the sport after my first couple years in the military, I started out playing flag football. I naturally demoted in the sports because of my aggressive and physical demeanor. I used sports as a type of therapy and therapy for and stressful situations in my life. As my life began to change and playing the sport was no longer an option, I turned my changed my focus to educating others on the importance of physical and mental exercise. The trouble with that is that people are very resistant to change. After a few years of working in the corporate environment I always found myself exercising on my breaks because I saw what a lack of physical activity affected co-workers around me. That was when I knew my true passion in life is to help others mentally and physically, now I am on the path to becoming a personal fitness trainer and life coach.
