“My mission in fitness was never to be a trainer. [My dive into health and wellness] is something I not only want to affect my close circle, but I want to affect the world … There’s so many different body types in the world and so many different walks of life that there is no one business model for how you’re supposed to look. But there’s definitely a business model for how you’re supposed to live—and it’s just treating your body the right way.”
“Respect towards nature means everything to me. I mean, we have one planet, just like we have one body. And I think that we should treat those things with the utmost respect.
Speaking from experience, the things that you put in your body is how your body performs, [much like how] the things that you do to the Earth is how the Earth is going to perform.”
“One thing I could probably change is using paper towels—[they] are very convenient, and I think that’s what has pushed the Earth to the point where it’s at now: conveniency. Human beings like to be in a situation where they don’t have to do much. They like to have a convenient situation where it’s catering to their lifestyle [not knowing] that the future generations, my daughter’s children and their children are going to have to deal with the effects of what we choose to do.”
