Training Philosophy:
Jose believes that creating and maintaining a solid foundation of good health is key to achieving life-long fitness. Through exercise you can accomplish this by challenging your mind and body with a balanced routine of various tasks. Fitness should be for good health at all levels. It should be for the mind, body, and spirit. ​
