What is Your Favorite Part About Your Job?
I love seeing the change in people, both mentally and physically. I enjoy seeing the look on people’s faces when they reach their goals. It is extremely rewarding to hear someone tell you how that one little tip, or that little extra push you gave them one day has made a world of difference. I like seeing people that never wanted to step foot in the gym turn into those that never want to leave.
