In this industry I get to meet many fascinating individuals that come from many different cultures and many different walks of life. No matter how diverse these people are, they all have a common goal; they want to improve their health. The reasons to get into shape vary, sometimes it is the family doctor who has advised them to become more active, sometimes it comes from a strong desire for a better sense of well-being, and sometimes it is very goal specific, such as training for a 10K marathon.
