What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After receiving my Doctor of Physical Therapy from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, I wanted to provide health & fitness guidance, in the context of maintaining superb physical therapy. With 5 years of running boot camps successfully, I have been so inspired by the dozens of customers I have been able to serve. Seeing the results they have been able to achieve in a short amount of time has been one of the most rewarding parts of what I do.
What do you love most about your job?
The fact that I am blessed with a gift that makes a tremendous difference in lives each and every day!! I actually save lives for a living!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
One client was suffering from a bad case of diabetes, he even lost both of his parents to the disease as well. He feared to lose his life if he didn't start exercising. After working with me for 3 months, he expressed his vindication after his doctor reported that he had no signs of Type 2 Diabetes anymore! What a life changer for the both of us!
