I started working with Ethan to get in better shape. I had gone to the gym before but had never used a personal trainer nor worked out with anything but machines or dumbells. Fast forward five years and at the age of 50 I’ll be competing at Regionals in Powerlifting and have qualified for Nationals! Both my physical and mental health have benefited from training with Ethan and he’s helping me become the best version of myself that I can be! Whatever your goals are, Ethan will help you attain them!

For me, one of the important parts of Grit to Grace is representation. Not only do I relate to Ethan because of our experience with childhood trauma, I can relate to him because of our experience navigating society as racialized people. Men and racialized men will have the ability to relate to him on a level, that as a female, I can never understand. I feel like Grit to Grace is multifaceted, and people for many different walks of life will be able to relate to it in their own individual ways.

Seeing the growth in Ethan from the moment he walked into my fitness studio, as a new fitness trainer to the man he has become now is inspiring. Mental health advocacy, chasing dreams and motivating others are only a few reasons why I am proud to call him a friend. Very exciting to see the next chapters in his journey.
