ABOUTI started my fitness career in 2012 after not having any direction in community college. My big passion in life is helping people in any way I can, and I got a real joy out of going to the gym and bettering myself. I decided to combine those two things and change my degree to Kinesiology. I received my AA in Kinesiology in 2016 at Fullerton Community College. I am currently enrolled at California State University of Fullerton for my Bachelors in Kinesiology with a concentration in strength and conditioning, and I will be graduating in May of 2018. I also received my personal training certification from NASM in 2014. My ultimate goal is to become a strength and conditioning coach, but I am taking life as it comes to me and seeing where my journey takes me.
I started interning at Rise Above Fitness in late 2016 learning from Brandan and the other trainers. This led to me becoming a full time trainer. I work with all age groups with all different fitness levels. Whether you want to lose body fat, increase strength, strengthen a weak or injured area, or gain muscle mass, I can help get you there if you are prepared to do the work. My philosophy in the gym and in life is simply work your ass off and be persistent. I have worked tirelessly over the years working a full-time job and going to school full-time to get where I am today. Your hard work will pay off. Come join the family!
