Quick Questions

Most people don’t know these 3 things about me:                                                              1. Diagnosed this fall with exercise induced asthma

2. Been to 6 of the last 7 Coachella Festivals

3. At the Knocked Up premiere, I was complimented on ‘my’ performance as the Obstetrician by a well-meaning older woman who apparently suffered from the “All Asians Look the Same” syndrome

Biggest accomplishment since joining RXD: Progressing from where just the movements with a PVC pipe in fundamentals left me with sore arms to getting to a place where my admittedly not perfect form has progressed to a place where I don’t have a sore back after deadlifts or similar bad form aches.

Describe RXD in your own words:  The most supportive workout environment that I’ve experienced to go along with intense varied workouts that have made RXD a fundamental part of my life.
