Will the real Juan Toro please stand up?
Most of you know Juan as the guy who owns Endurance Health and Fitness studio, the guy who delivers killer workouts and the guy who teases Sus everyday to get a laugh out of our members.
Let me give you an insight into an individual who stands for more than you realise. You see, I stumbled across this great individual when I was just a shy 22 year old girl (yes, I was shy believe it or not). After landing two part time positions as an Accountant at a firm and an Accounting Lecturer/Tutorial Teacher at RMIT University, I realised that as much as my career was growing so was my arse! I needed to get myself into good nick because I was unhappy with the way I looked and felt.
I dragged my sorry little ass that was expanding into a gym and signed up for a 12 month membership. I knew I was the only one responsible for my health and fitness. I knew that it would be challenging and I also knew that I was prepared to do whatever it took to achieve my goals.
After a couple of weeks pretending to look like I knew what I was doing at the gym, I finally approached Juan and asked if he could train me. I had my first consultation with Juan and seven years later, I’ve never looked back. It has been a journey to say the least. I didn’t know what I was in for. I thought I was paying for workouts and trying to get into shape. It was more than that. I definitely got BANG for my BUCK. I learnt so much as a client and now, well let’s just say Juan has moved up in the ranks…
From having Juan as my personal trainer he has now become a lifelong friend to my family and I (Jenan and Amal we have another brother. I know you’re thinking ‘like we need another one?)
Juan took me under his wing and by working alongside him I have gotten to know him on a whole new level. This guy is kind and caring to people who are lucky enough to cross paths with him. He is annoying; his jokes suck and need a lot of work. He is messy, his thinking process is from left to right and he speaks Spanglish really well. He knows me more than I know myself, he is my navigator when I am cruising the streets of Melbourne and need direction. He constantly reminds me of the time I drove my car into a house and warns me to stop speeding because he won’t be picking me up for work if I lose my license. (I should have lost it twice by now but thank you to my entourage who have taken my points).
In all seriousness, Juan has developed himself into an individual who delivers more than quality workouts. He invests money and valuable time into our education and training on a regular basis ensuring we provide only the best to all our members. He is passionate and practices what he preaches. He doesn’t ask his members to do things he wouldn’t do.
For as long as I can remember Juan has been physically active with playing soccer and has maintained a nutritious diet. He has developed a good relationship with food and doesn’t classify food as being bad. There’s good food and there’s food. He doesn’t make excuses as to why he can’t prepare his days’ worth of food he just gets it done and doesn’t complain. He is consistent with his eating and his training. He is almost as good as me on the track...almost!
Juan outruns most guys his age and younger. He is currently transforming his body to become a better version of himself. The level of diligence and care Juan shows all our members is second to none. If that’ not what you call dedication to your members, business and yourself I don’t what is.
As business partners, we created Endurance Health and Fitness Studio from scratch. From boxing, spin and circuit classes we have now created an even better concept of group fitness known as ICE. From one on one personal training sessions where we would kick tyres, have a laugh and play counselor to our members we have moved on to offering group personal training that is results based. We educate our clients, kick tyres and still have a laugh. We have created a community and a culture for all our members to get the support, encouragement and motivation they need to ensure that they create the body shape, health and fitness they have always wanted but never thought possible.
As Body Transformation Specialists we are evolving. As Endurance Health and Fitness Studio we are evolving. As a community we are evolving. As a team we are evolving. As Juan and Sus we are evolving. Thanks for the last six years. Here’s to many more!
