When did you start your fitness journey?

I started really late. As a child, I was obese and wasn’t motivated to exercise. My lifestyle for many years were very inactive. And I don’t even watch my diet!

At 18, I started jogging and I saw some changes physically and mentally. That is when I decided to drop my lazy lifestyle and put that behind me and start a new lifestyle.

I wished I started sooner but no age is too late. I am still a work in progress, always learning new things and exploring, discovering my body’s capabilities.

I became a fitness instructor in 2012 because I wanted to prove that anyone can change and that it starts with the right mindset.

Inspiring! Indeed, no age is too late when it comes to fitness. Masters and Seniors should definitely self-care so as to age well. Don’t miss out on industry experts’ advice on the topic in ActiveHealth’s latest series of webinars!
