Tell us the story of how you got started. How has it evolved?
My fitness motivation started while playing football in high school and college. This lead me to my B.S. in Kinesiology at Fresno State. While studying at Fresno State, I coached football at McLane High School and eventually become a student assistant coach at Fresno State.
While going to college, I started personal training at a corporate gym because I had a passion for helping people achieve their goals. I applied my coaching knowledge and kinesiology background to develop training programs for individuals.
From there, I went into the personal training studio setting where I could focus on individuals in a controlled environment.
Last year my wife and I decided it was time to open our own studio. We wanted to create a non-intimidating, positive environment where we can focus on individual health and functional goals.
How do you balance it with the rest of your life?
We have a 2 year old and 5 year old and we work as a team to keep family and work life at a balance.
What is your healthy living philosophy?
I believe in life long fitness. Eating a healthy and balanced diet. Everything in moderation.
What’s next for you?
We want to be more involved in helping the community! We also want to continue growing and learning in our field of fitness.
What advice will you offer to someone interested in getting into this?
We offer everyone a free consultation. We don’t want you to be intimidated! We have experience with a diverse group of individuals. From 10 years old to 70+
What makes Inspire Fitness unique?
We are a private training studio. The majority of the time there is 1 trainer on the floor working with their clients. This makes it possible for you to get an efficient and individually tailored workout.
