Devoted over 30+ years to the garment industry as Worldwide Operations Manager, in management and finance, call it fate or opportunity; I chose to join forces with my beloved brother Juan Carlos Santana, an esteemed director, prolific author and writer, considered and acclaimed “the trainer of trainers” and owner of the Institute of Human Performance, I was motivated in part by our strong family ties and mirroring work ethics. “I was pumped” claims JC, “at the possibilities and opportunities that lie ahead with my sister as first mate”.
After learning my way around the gym I decided this was the place for me.The positive energy and upbeat attitude of everyone there was contagious and encouraging. Working alongside some of the most dynamic and influential professionals in the business, I adopted a new vision. I’ve made fitness a part of my everyday life; I work out regularly and feel more energetic and full of life than I did 20 years ago. “
