CEO of Punch Fitness

A website for our readers?

What’s a typical (or not so typical) day-in-the-work-life for you?
Typical work day: Rise and shine @ 4am, mon-fri, head out to my first 5am session, followed by 6:30am, visit at least 10 businesses, followed by my evening sessions 6pm, and 7:30pm.

How did you get your current job in fitness and exercise?
I got started in fitness at an early age, started as as a P.E. teacher for 14yrs, studied personal training, kick boxing.  Fitness is a big part of my life every day.

What skills were you born with and what skills have you learned along the way?
Since being in the fitness industry for over 12 years, I have learned how to get our clients the best workout ever.  I have learned the insanity workout, kick boxing, circuit training, and corporate fitness.

What advice do you have for others wanting to be just as successful and fulfilled as you?
The advice I would give to someone who is just starting in this business is to study hard, learn as much as they can about fitness, start by working at a health club, and you must have a passion for people.

If you could be paid for your job with something other than a paycheck, what would it be?
If I could be paid other than a paycheck, it would have to be the thanks and appreciation I get every day from people that have gone through my fitness program, and got the results they were looking for.
