 Juan Guerrero

JAY_2438-1TAMUCC Intern Your Personal Best Training Studio Working on a Bachelors in Exercise Science 

Interests Are: Sports Health and Fitness Nutrition How exercise can save lives Finding ways to motivate people Strength and agility exercises Dieting Neuromuscular training Fighting Obesity Juan says, even though most people do not like to exercise, just by doing a simple walk 30 mins a day can have positive changes in your life. People like to make all sorts of excuses for why not to workout but walking for 15 min around the block and 15 min back won’t kill or hurt anyone. Juan says he exercises because it helps him relieve stress and he actually enjoys working out. Being a college student and having a job really puts a lot of stress on him and instead of going out drinking or taking his anger out on someone he would much rather exercise and just get away from all the distractions around from time to time.



Juan’s Strengths:

  • An instinctively accepting person, respectful of individual differences.
  • Loves to solve problems and bring people back to a healthier and more fit lifestyle.
  • Can sort through the “clutter” of a solution and find the best route.
  • Dependable and easy to trust.
  • Can work long hours, without burning out, understanding what it takes to achieve “Your Personal Best.”
