Favorite motivational quote:

"Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway" by Earl Nightingale.

How long have you been with UAC & what about UAC enticed you to join?

It will soon be five months since I joined UAC. One of my favorite restaurants in town, Espita Mezcalería, is a block away and I'd see people sweating it out outside in the muggy heat of summer when I walked past UAC. At that point, I was searching for new ways to test my fitness level and thought UAC looked fun, so I decided to give it a try. Here we are five months later!

What is your favorite lift/movement/workout?

Deadlifts and any workout involving kettlebells.

What is your favorite thing about UAC?

The coaches are attentive and have taught me and continue to show me the proper form with the lift/movements. I also feel that I'm progressing in at least one area every week, whether it's strength or conditioning.

What are a few of your fitness goals?

Continue to steadily increase weight on my snatches, improve my kipping pull-ups, and learn to enjoy the assault bike.

What do you like to do for fun outside of the gym?

Travel somewhere warm and play dodgeball.
