I wanted to be just like them so I worked as closely as possible and learned as much as I could. But since starting Move Society and diving into the world of training, I have never felt such passion and pride as I do when I see someone at the very beginning of their own journey.

THE PHYSICAL WEIGHT OF EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE

Top: CorLayr Short Sleeve Top Bottom: TecLayr EveryThing Short, HardWear Compression Tight There are certain moments in your life that make you stop and recollect on what you’ve been through the past few years. Shooting with Ally Pintucci from RYU was definitely one of them for me. When did I become a person that an athletic apparel brand wanted to have in their advertising? How have I been so fortunate to have this happen to me? My reality today couldn’t be more opposite than it was as little as 5 years ago.

BEYOND THE FINISH LINE

Top: CorLayr Racerback Tank “Good enough” is never enough in sport. Complacency is like death. This mentality keeps you driven, keeps you hungry, and keeps you performing. At the same time, it is important to remember that you as a person are enough. It is important to separate the person from what he or she does. I find this hard to do at times.
