A typical day in my life includes…

normally, I wake up around 4:30 am (the not so great part), have breakfast (the best part), make sure my checklist for the day is done, and head to the gym where I start training at 5:30 am. Currently, I am still getting up early, reading at least 10 pages (current book = High Performance Habits), and now opening up my nutrition bar (TruBoost Nutrition) to keep me busy until my gym can open up again. On a free day, you’ll usually find me hiking, working out, or hanging with friends – all of those make my life better.

I am also busy planning my virtual class. TruHIT Fitness is offering virtual classes online. New members can join for just $21 for 21 days! Our virtual classes are being offered M-F 6 am, 9 am, 5 pm and 9 am Saturdays. I teach Thursdays at 5 pm. You can sign up at here, make sure to choose Central Scottsdale.

I was born…

in California, but moved to the Dominican Republic when I was 6 months old.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

EVERYTHING! It’s so clean and with over 200 miles of trails, I’m always happy hiking!

I’m listening to…

RÜFÜS DU SOL – Live from Joshua Tree.

My family…

is so important to me, including the family I choose and the family that chose me.  

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Marisa Peer, her words inspire me!

One thing I cannot live without…

music.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a ballerina, a model, a singer… sounds like I wanted to be a performer.

I’m inspired by…

my friends and my clients. Seeing them go through challenges and come out on top physically and mentally are truly incredible. 

The one person who motivates me is…

my stepdad. He is so proud of me and because of that, I never want to let him down. 

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

to help the world see through more love and compassion. So many people are quick to judge. People feed off fear and tragedy (at least in the news) that it’s truly given a sad image of the world. If we could seek to understand and show love without demanding it return, I feel it would make the world a happier place.

The perfect day would be…

sleeping in just a bit (8 am), having my favorite breakfast shake, going for a hike in Sedona (or local), then going for brunch with friends, music in the park, petting the cutest dog, and cuddling up next to someone I love.

My first job was…

working in my church nursery in Texas.

My favorite escape…

an intense HIIT workout or a great music set.

My life…

squirrel!

I’m currently working on…

making my nutrition bar a success since the gym is closed. Previously TruBoost Nutrition was only open to gym members during class hours and I want to bring those amazing shakes and teas to anyone.

Always…

smile!  You never know who’s looking and might need it to brighten their day.

Never…

give up! You can’t beat someone that never stops trying. Just posted about this on @ABTruHit, Babe Ruth said something to this effect and Winston Churchill before that. They said it because they wanted to accomplish great things and you can’t grow and learn if you give up.

Favorite Quote…

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

Biggest Dream…

make such a difference, that the impact I made on so many lives continues to live on and lived by example through others. Short term: own two TruHit gyms and help others achieve success through fitness.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people make excuses that hurt themselves.
