COACH Jae Park

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

Over his years of coaching,he couldn’t help but think, ‘what is fitness for?’.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. Jae firmly believes in helping people re-discover and re-define what makes them truly fit and well.  

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

COACH Andrew Jesus

Movement has been something that I loved to do since I was a kid and it led me to find FNS in 2018. Through the coaches before me, they empowered me to become more than just an individual athlete but to be a part of a community that held me accountable and cheers each other on. Now I have the amazing opportunity to not only serve our community but to learn, empathize and educate our athletes on a Daily basis through movement. I will be your biggest cheerleader, but I will challenge you to be the best version of yourself on and off the blue turf! We’re in this journey to together and there’s no other team I’d rather be part of! We rise together
