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.
