My passion for fitness started over 25 years ago, and reached its peak when I moved to this country in 2003. I know what it means to struggle with being overweight, because I reached around 200 lbs after having both my daughters. For 6 years I had the opportunity to teach spinning, kickboxing, and personal fitness in Miami. In that time, I also competed in figure competitions. In all honesty though, working in this gym for over 5 years has given me the opportunity to work with kids, adults, and seniors. It has let me see in each of my clients not only the desire to live a healthier lifestyle, but also to reach personal fitness goals. This job has also let me share in their lives my love for the Word of God. I’m very glad and thankful to be a part of the GFW family.
