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. Now that he is working at YPB, he realizes that the toughest part for people is actually getting to the gym, but we know that once you are here we will do our best for you to achieve Your Personal Best!

  • Can sort through the “clutter” of a solution and find the best route.
  • Dependable and easy to trust.
