Manny’s passion for fitness began when he was a little kid. He started early with soccer, track and basketball in school, moving on to biking and triathlons later in life. He now loves running, yoga, weights, and of course indoor cycling. His passion has evolved into an all-around body fitness program which he continues to evolve as his kids grow and get more involved.

As a small business owner, he knows that the client always comes first; his goal is to help each client achieve their goals while having fun in the process.
