Inspire Millions. Change Lives WorldWide.
Who would have thought that pursing what I loved the most would bring me upmost satisfaction in life? I have always been a traveler. That strong passion has kept me exploring South America, savoring every moment immersed in each new country, a fresh culture, opening my heart and mind to learn from their way of life.
An experience I treasure so much is that gotten while living and touring Argentina and Brasil. I hungered to understand the culture and people from the very roots. I lived in houses and neighborhoods quite alien to the comfort I knew while growing up. For the first time, I experienced sleeping under exposed roofs and broken floors in areas which were best known for their high rates in crime and prostitution. There were moments where I was completely unsure of the next day due to the very low income I received from teaching English. There was little to no water, internet or electricity making it almost impossible to communicate with my loved ones. Many would’ve felt lost, sad and confused in those moments, but I felt refined, excited and more so passionate.
It was through that journey that I landed in my heart’s destined location. Salvador, Bahia Brazil. The place of magic which fused together 2 strong individuals, from 2 different cultures, both from distant countries, driven by common hobbies later polished into a burning passion -Fitness and Culture. I, from Columbus, Ohio in the US and my beautiful wife from Acajutiba, Bahia Brazil have grown and spent quality time together over the years contributing immensely to this passion of ours. During our early journeys, while still courting, we found many awesome places in Brazil to work out; you would find us at public parks, beaches, gyms, the simplest of places, doing what we loved best together. As a result, we were able to mature as a family and easily merge our diverse cultures into ONE, dedicating ourselves wholly to Family and Fitness.
In time, we were blessed with a grand gift; we welcomed our son into this world. His arrival boosted the true message of our brand, Fit By Culture, which focuses on health and wellness through the shaping and molding of each individuals life experience, quality time spent with loved ones, friends and most importantly, family. Our apparels are perfect for comfortable, healthy workouts at the gym, but also double as hip and trendy outfits that are great for day to day activities.
Looking back at all the experiences I had while traveling, the good, bad and ugly, I can proudly say I don’t regret the choices I made because they were all fueled by the burning passion I had to know, live, learn and love foreign civilizations. I was molded by the diverse cultures, lifestyles and languages I encountered in my journeys. Fit By Culture stresses that everything is possible with an open heart and mind to travel, culture and growth through life’s experiences, while still focusing on an essential of life which is Health and Wellness. Fit By Culture allows you to be molded, not just physically but also as an individual, creating structures, discovering destinies, becoming more aware of cultures and travelling the world!
Live Culture, Live Fitness!
What the Definition of Fit By Culture Means
The brand Fit By Culture represents my formation and growth into adulthood through experience, humility and life abroad. Exposure to diverse cultures has helped to shape and mold me into the person that I am today. Literally, this brand discloses a strong message; Multi-cultural experiences and travel can undoubtedly help to shape and mold a person into a well rounded, open minded individual, if one allows it to.
What one must unavoidably come to realize is that we are all Fit By Culture in one way or another. This discovery is, more often than not, recognized at relative times and ways. Personally, I apprehended the Fit By Culture mission by living as a native in both Argentina and Brazil. Experiences in simple housing situations, day to day activities, etc, enabled me to appreciate the little things and pushed me to develop a deeper sense of humility, joy, gratitude and lifelong lessons. What I didn’t realize early on was I was slowly tapping into a passion of mine, which forever changed my life. I will eternally be touched AND INSPIRED by all of it.
By constant molding, refining and shaping each day, I have become enriched into a better person, and thus, I have shared this enhancement with my loved ones, friends and significantly, my family, enriching and transforming them into better individuals as well. We share our story to help people grow both physically and culturally. Fit By Culture isn’t just a typical fitness brand, it is a brand driven by the lives which are inspired and transformed everyday through fitness and culture. Today, I am a fortunate to have a beautiful family that formulates a major part of the Fit By Culture story. Ensure that TODAY you are allowing yourself to be Fit By Culture as well!

I AM FIT BY CULTURE; THEREFORE WE ARE FIT BY CULTURE.
