About me

I am a sophomore in high school. I plan to go to Duke University and major in health and fitness. My long term goal is to become a freelance personal trainer. At the age of 11 i had started going to the boxing gym with my dad and brothers and began to love to work out. I would love to be able to work out everyday for a living
