Jeffrey's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To expand and upgrade our existing facility to better serve underrepresented populations in our community such as seniors, teens and working parents thus increasing our membership and working capital.
I was born and raised in Long Beach, Ca. Attended John Muir Elementary, Stephens and Hughes Jr. High, LB Poly and on to USC. There I majored in Kinesiology with the aspirations of becoming a Sports Med Doctor. I became a Physician Assistant (PA) and it was just as rewarding. I had a great childhood. I remember having encyclopedias in my home and I would always pull the “H” volume. It had transparencies of the human body in it and I became fascinated by what the body looked like under our skin. That began my interest in Anatomy and Physiology. During that time my mom would always watch this guy on TV in a jumpsuit. He would be doing these exercises and I would think who is this guy? That guy was Jack La Lane and that was how the interest in fitness began. After 10 years as a PA and being in Medicine I turned to preventative and healthy medicine and that transition took me away from the medical field, back to Long Beach, CA and I started my own gym, Motivations Personal Training Studio. I 100% love what I do. I always volunteered as a camp counselor and my dream and my goal now is to one day own and operate a fitness camp where kids/teens will come and detach from social media and get into fitness in addition to having multiple Motivations Personal Training Studios throughout the area. This loan will help me get closer to reaching that dream of expansion.
