What got you into fitness?
I remember growing up and being at my brother's football games. All my brothers played sports (I have three brothers). I grew up around sports. My family played sports. And I started playing sports at a young age (football and track). I’ve always loved fitness, being active, going out to play. Fitness has just always been there, and it’s something I’m passionate about; and I knew I wanted to have a career in health & fitness.
What keeps you going?
My family, wanting to get better every day. being satisfied. And I have a lot of kids in my family. Little cousins, nieces and nephews. Can’t be slacking and let them beat me in anything lol. Has to be earned. Can’t stop, won’t stop.
what is your biggest achievement?I would say starting this business. And speaking it into existence but getting my college degree and graduating.
