COACH Jae Park

Coach Jae found his way to fitness career with the hope of positively impacting people’s lives and of helping them reach their potentials. 

Over the years of coaching, he couldn’t help thinking ‘Fit for what?’. The word fitness appeared to be misused frequently to determine one’s level of physical condition, but often it entailed a set of standards created and imposed by others. 

Eventually his focus shifted to the concept of wellness as it contributes more to the quality of human life. Therefore, Jae firmly believes in helping people re-discover and re-define what makes them truly fit and well.

One of FNS athlete ethos is to “Define your fit”. Jae couldn’t agree more, but to join the team to listen, learn and lead from the front. He is ready, willing and able to serve with gratitude and passion.
