Forrest has had a passion for health and fitness from a young age. Before getting certified as a Personal Trainer, he taught mixed martial arts, participated in gymnastics, and ran cross country. During his college years, he began to cultivate his coaching skills by motivating his friends in the gym and create exercise routines for them. He also taught ballroom dance during his time at Washington State University, where he graduated with a bachelor’s in biology. Forrest finds value in taking the time to help others to achieve their goals in fitness, push their limits; and change their lives the way exercise and fitness has changed his own life.
