Say hi to Armando Gutierrez, BS. Armando is the Fitness Manager at Napa Synergy Health Club in Napa, CA. The Club is managed by MFA Best Practice Partner, Active Wellness. Armando has a BS in Exercise Science from California State University Fresno. He has been at Napa Synergy Health Club for two years.
We caught up with Armando recently and here’s what he had to say…
What do you enjoy most about your work?
The ability to help improve the quality of life in someone or a group of people. Every day I believe there is a chance to educate, coach, challenge someone to be a better version of themselves. At the same time, helping someone else educates, coaches, and challenges me to become better and to continue to grow as a professional in this industry.
What has been your favorite/most successful initiative at Napa Synergy Health Club?
The start of our Rock Steady Boxing Program has been my favorite and most successful initiative. Being able to start a program from the ground up and seeing its success after one year is beyond rewarding. My team and the fighters participating in the program are the biggest and number one reason for the program’s success.
What one piece of advice would you give to those just coming into this field of medical fitness?
Don’t ever believe you know enough, continue to read and educate yourself in as many topics related to health and wellness as possible. Knowledge is power.
