Parwez Rafique

Certified Fitness Trainer and Founder

Getting in shape shouldn’t be a punishment. It’s an amazing and empowering lifestyle decision that anyone can make. I believe in finding the pleasurable side of fitness; and while there may be a sore muscle or two along the way, the benefits of fitness are worth the challenge. I have developed my training regime by working with a variety of people from all walks of life and constantly adapting my programs to the needs of my new athletes.

As a professional trainer, my passion is to guide the world towards a healthier lifestyle. Everybody is unique, with their own strengths and limitations.  I aim to transform your body and empower you to make more mindful decisions when it comes to your health while showing you that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to!
