About David
My fitness journey began at the age of 18, when I started experiencing pain and morning stiffness which worsened over time. I was eventually diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis, an autoimmune disorder, which had a profound impact on my ability to work and my overall quality of life. After several years of progressively worsening symptoms and side effects from medications, I began incorporating fitness, nutrition as well as acupuncture and other TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) modalities into my life. My life was changed for the better and I decided to pursue a career that could enable me to help others struggling with medical conditions and poor lifestyle habits through starting their own fitness journey.

About Gemady
I discovered my love for fitness when I met David in Japan. My desire to learn more about wellness and exercise lead me to pursue a degree in Dietetics at UH Manoa. I firmly believe that food is an important component of any fitness regimen. Additionally, a proper diet can improve quality of life as well as manage symptoms of chronic conditions. As a future Registered Dietitian, I aim to incorporate my knowledge of nutrition and diet into training programs.

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2018. Before my diagnosis, I suffered from chronic leg pain. Exercise, yoga and self-myofascial release techniques helped with pain management. I believe that conditioning gained from exercise and a sound diet supported a swift recovery from a laparoscopic surgery that I underwent in 2018. Although exercise is not a magic bullet, I firmly believe in it’s anti-inflammatory effects and role in pain relief. A combination of proper diet and Chinese medicine supports the management of my symptoms and allows me to continue pursuing my fitness goals and academic pursuits. My hope is that I can improve people’s quality of life through nutrition and exercise.
