Personal Philosophy

I am driven by a commitment to constant improvement and I view fitness not merely as a goal to achieve but as a dynamic and evolving journey. Embracing a more active lifestyle, I embarked on the initially challenging path of learning and engaging in gym activities. The support of a welcoming community and a daily dedication to staying active have allowed me to develop a genuine affection for the gym community in Berkeley. The once intimidating environment has transformed into a source of comfort. As others have helped me in the past, hopefully I can be the person to motivate and guide you to reach your fitness goals.
