I met Varian in 2012 at Rivera gym when I was trying to sign up with the gym for personal training. He came up to me and said I can do what they do and wouldn’t charge you that much and thus the journey began. I was rounding 220 when I met VArian and knew I needed to do something so we both took a chance on each other. My biggest goal was to get below 200 and we definitely got there after many morning workouts I got down to 190!!. It was hard because I had knee issues from an old surgery he would always say “pain is just weakness leaving the body”.
So many times I wanted to give up but Varian always motivated me and encouraged me to keep pushing through. I know one thing I became the best jump roper in the city! He was my coach, motivator and became my friend! He not only help with exercising but help to get me on track with my eating habits and even after I accomplished my goal reminding me to keep going and letting me know how proud of me he was for continuing my fitness journey. It all started with Varian and me and thank him for taking the time to coach and guide me and to always keep moving.
