I am 54 years old and life-long fitness fanatic. I’ve spent 27 years in finance and working at some of the largest Wall St. institutions in various roles such as trading, financial consulting and legal and compliance. I made the leap to open my fitness business in January 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic. I can do 1,500 push ups in a day. I regularly do 25 pull ups and I can do 15 with at least 35 lbs extra weight. I opened my fitness studio with over 300 clients in my grand opening. To my knowledge, there was only one other owner that accomplished this with their very first location. I did so without any prior knowledge and understanding of how to operate a small business. I spent the time and energy necessary to acquire the knowledge to have a massive grand opening. I have been featured in Big Issue Magazine in Korea. I have appeared on a Korean TV show on the TVn Channel. My fitness business, Massapequa Fit Body Boot Camp, was just voted Best Boot Camp on Long Island for 2022. I have served on the Franchise Advisory Council for Fit Body Boot Camp, the franchise of which I am the owner in Massapequa Park NY. I have been a member if the Fit Body Boot Camp Mastermind which serves to educate, support, and drive any Fit Body owner to be the best in the business. In the Fall of 2016, I was the heaviest I have ever been and decided to make a change. Even though I had been working out my whole life, I still did not understand the principle of effective and sustainable weight loss. Through research and study, I implemented my nutrition plan beginning in 2017. Over the next 12 months I would lose 25lbs and be in the best shape of my life at age 50. I would eventually reach a body fat percentage of 8.5%, the lowest I had ever been.
