In 1976, it all began here. The iconic celebrity fitness scene. The serious, no non-sense workout. The commitment to always remain a true gym, not a resort. A place where great shape is an authentic passion. Where you belong among friends. Where everyone's star, and you have the power to lift yourself to greatness. This is World Gym.

 Experience: 20 years in the fitness industry

Being a competitive swimmer for 10 years and in the martial arts for 5 years, health and fitness has played a major role in my life. Unfortunately, with a demanding career my level of fitness decreased. Noticing the difference in my health, energy and excitement for life, I decided to reset my goals and take action. This motivated me to become a certified personal trainer and help others reach their goals as well. Along my journey, I have been able to supervise multiple clubs, employ and develop incredible people and currently own multiple facilities. My passion is to provide as many individuals as possible the ability to enhance their lifestyle through health and fitness! Health and Happiness to All
