Emmanuel is a native-born New Yorker and opened his own fitness facility, ESPI Fitness Inc., over two years ago, after acquiring much experience in the field of personal training. Emmanuel aspires to use his experience in the fitness field to empower the youth of his community both physically and mentally, by providing them with essential skills in leadership, teamwork and confidence.
After franchising with Parisi Speed, a fitness center that provides training for young athletes to help them achieve their full potential, Emmanuel had the clientele to expand his operation into a larger facility. In May of last year he made the move to a larger facility. With the help of his wife, Nicole, who also works a full-time job with Space Coast Credit Union, they manage the facilities. Emmanuel feels that this space provides a better layout and better business opportunities for him. The purpose of his loan is to purchase more fitness equipment and set up a smoothie bar in his new space.
