I crave adventure in the great outdoors and this characteristic has taken me from California to all around the World. I have over 5 years experience in designing and monitoring exercise programs based on client needs, goals, abilities, and anatomy. Motivating people to be the best versions of themselves is what I love waking up to do everyday. I don’t think there’s anyone who always feels perfect about their body, but I’ve found that when I feel STRONG, my confidence skyrockets. My goal is empower you through fitness, to harness your personal strength, determination, and power to change the way you live your life! Let’s sweat!

On a remote Pacific island, 2,575 km from the nearest continent, equatorial trade winds purify the clouds that begin FIJI Water’s journey through one of the world’s last virgin ecosystems. As tropical rain falls on a pristine rain forest, it filters through layers of volcanic rock, slowly gathering the natural minerals that give FIJI Water its soft, smooth taste. The water collects in a natural artesian aquifer, deep below the Earth’s surface, shielded from external elements by confining layers of rock. Natural pressure forces the water towards the surface, where it’s bottled at the source, free from human contact until you unscrew the cap. Untouched by man, it’s Earth’s Finest Water®.
FIJI Water was founded in 1996 out of the desire to share Earth’s Finest Water with the world. Today, it is available in leading hotels, fine restaurants and retail locations. As a leading export of the Fiji Islands, FIJI Water is now the number one imported premium bottled water in the United States and is enjoyed in over 80 countries across the globe.
FIJI Water is committed to doing business responsibly and seeking meaningful opportunities to make a difference. That means investing in its communities and the environment and focusing its efforts around meaningful issues with like-minded partners to enable positive change.
Benefit to participants: There will be Fiji Water available at the finish of the run!
