Much like any other organization, our product is only as good as the people that deliver it. Great staff is pivotal in the success of any movement. We have been very fortunate to have a dedicated group of trainers who day in and day out act as positive role models for the youth that we work with. These trainers have all been selfless, putting the greater good of the Foundation first. The kids get excited every time they see our trainers arrive on site. They know that means a fun positive experience is in store. We would like to give you the opportunity to get to know a little bit about the fine folks that are the Amenzone Foundation Trainers.

Why is a healthy active lifestyle important to you? Maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle is important to me because I want to be able to live my life to the fullest.

I cherish my mind and body, and have to take good care of it.
