Hi, my name is Fabian, and I’ve been a Certified Personal Trainer since 2014. But, my love and passion for fitness started in 2010 following a suicide attempt.
At the time, I was a soldier in the United States Army and had just came back from my second combat deployment from Iraq. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was suffering from severe PTSD. This wasn’t evident until it was almost too late. It wasn’t evident until late one evening I came close to slitting my wrist, but my daughter walked in, I started playing with her and that prevented me from going through with it.
The next day after work I decided not to go home, because I feared following through with it. Instead, I found myself in a gym, and after two hours of working out I walked out feeling like I mattered. I walked out knowing I wanted to live. It was then I realized the power fitness has to improve not only physical health, but mental and emotional health as well. This is why I am so passionate about teaching my clients how to use fitness to improve their mental, emotional and physical health.
