Health and fitness is vital to us all, but for some of us it is life itself. This is where my heart is at and will always be. My father introduced me to body building at a very young age which sparked my interest and I've been on this path ever since.I have been helping people to become fitter and healthier since I was a teenager. Much of my teen and young adult life was spent in the gym. I've taken my interest to a new level I'm in the process of re-trainig to become a personal fitness trainer. I started a career as physical education teacher several years ago. My intention is to upgrade myself to the highest level as far as health and fitness is concerned. I am a Basu in Kametic yoga. I am at presently working on becoming an Om-Gym instructor. This is my way of contributing to a healther population.
