As a Pacific Islander and growing up in the Philippines, I was exposed to a very active lifestyle at a very young age. This activeness translated easily when I joined and served in the United States Coast Guard. I realized then that I had a passion for fitness and wellness.
Up to today, I have been a student of sport, fitness, exercise physiology and exercise psychology for over 20 years. Since obtaining my B.S. in Exercise Science from The University of Southern California (USC), I have been a personal trainer for over 20 years and co-owner for over 15 years. In opening, operating and growing ‘In Shape Personal Fitness,’ my journey in this industry continues to give me plenty of personal, professional and business growth; all of which have been blessings in my life.
