A Chat with Alequin Mixed Martial Arts Academy
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
We never allow our students to doubt themselves. The word “can’t” is not allowed.”I can” and “I will” is how they are told to respond when they think they can’t go on. They soon come to find out they are capable of much more than just one exercise routine.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been in martial arts for six years and it has completely changed my life for the better. I have received opportunities that I never thought I would ever come across. I want others to see that they too are capable of anything they put their mind to.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to help others, whether it’s with fitness training, health, or even helping them reach one of their short- or long-term goals. If I have the opportunity to have an impact on someone’s life, I take advantage of that opportunity.
