It’s Go time.
Introducing our newest Mob Lead, Benjie Go, who is about to help you get your cardio on every Monday and Wednesday morning.
On everything from what got him into fitness to his guilty pleasure (it’s good), here’s more on Benjie.
fitmob: How would you describe your new workout, House of Cardio?
B: Safe, effective, challenging and never boring
fitmob: What song describes your class?
B: Awake and Alive by Skillet. ”…now I know what I believe inside, now its my time I’ll do what I want, this is my life….”
fitmob: What are your first memories of your fitness passion as a child?
B: Growing up in the Philippines, I spent a lot of time in the ocean. I was always in the water swimming and snorkeling. Laying on the sand all day did not make sense to me.
fitmob: Why do you teach?
B: I feel very fortunate to be able to directly help make people’s lives better, including mine, through fitness. It’s quite inspiring to see my participants realize how much stronger, faster and leaner they’ve become.
fitmob: What inspires you to get active when you don’t feel like it?
B: I was significantly overweight mostly due to inactivity and I will never let that happen to me again.
fitmob: What type of sport do you like that we might not expect?
B: Skydiving. I jumped 3 times, and look forward to doing it again. Nothing like staring down 5,000 feet when the plane door opens.
fitmob: Where is the coolest or craziest place you’ve worked out?
B: The coolest have to be in Kauai. The place I was staying at was right on a cliff and I woke up at dawn everyday to catch the sunrise, hear the crashing waves and run, jump, twist and sweat.
fitmob: What’s your guilty pleasure?
B: Anything DEEP FRIED! Still in search of deep fried ice cream…
fitmob You need to get fried bananas with coconut ice cream, you’ll die. Best combo ever.
Okay, so if you could live in one other time period ever, when would it be?
B: None, I value modern amenities. But as a snapshot in time, the time of the dinosaurs would be intriguing, just the thrill of seeing them live.
fitmob: Zombies have invaded the Earth – who’d be on your fighting team?
B: Alice from Resident Evil!!! Woohoo!
fitmob: If you were stuck in a salad bowl how would you get out?
B: Build a wall out of croutons so I can climb out.
fitmob: Any last words for anyone thinking of coming to your workout?
B: You will regret missing a workout, but never regret finishing one. Let’s do this together!
