WHAT MOTIVATES YOU? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
I have always been self motivated but now as a coach I have a community that depends on me everyday. I find it that much more important to lead by example and also show them that I am human and go through the same ups and downs. I also understand and believe in my purpose. I am aiming to provide quality and affordable fitness solutions in Harlem where I grew up. There are little to no fitness options available and I love having the opportunity to create valuable change in my neighborhood.
I am the owner of two fitness businesses in Harlem: JTW FIT and Harlem Kettlebell Club. I am also the founder of The Laurence B. Smith Scholarship Foundation, which offers scholarships to senior student athletes at my high school, The Frederick Douglass Academy, also located in Harlem. Between my fitness businesses and scholarship foundation, I have had the opportunity to support other organizations in the community that have goals that align with my mission. Whether it's fitness classes, conversations around college prep or entrepreneurship, my goal is to connect with as many people as possible and give them guidance.
