INTERVIEW WITH JACOB
I try to be physically active everyday, even if it is only for 5 minutes — The pebbles turn into mountains over time.
An endless plate of dumplings, I just can’t get enough of them… I can eat dumplings to the point of discomfort and somehow not be ashamed of myself.

Everything David Goggins says makes me want to stop everything I am doing and go workout.

Being physically active has been a HUGE part of my life, and so have the injuries which have come with it. I initially entered into the health & wellness space to learn how to optimize my own physical performance and how to address all the bumps and bruises I acquired over the years — I have stayed because I want to use what I have learned to help others to do the same.
