I had the wonderful pleasure to interview Coach Falcon. He has a lot of energy and is truly committed to his purpose in life which is to help people make a change for the betterment of their physical health. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did. We chatted so much and so long it was like speaking with an old friend. I did not capture every word because we sometimes veered off topic but am sharing the gist of the conversation. Very powerful #BOOM!
FFFC: Please introduce yourself to our readers.
CF: They call me Coach Falcon and I have been in fitness a little over a decade. I worked at Hopkins (Johns Hopkins) in health and wellness of their corporate health program. I’ve been a trainer, former athlete, a lifeguard, and life coach. I went into life coaching because while training clients, there was something personal, they have a lot of other things going on. It is my business to change people’s lives.
FFFC: How did you get interested in fitness?
CF: I’ve always been an athlete and Sports come easy to me, so Fitness helps me to do what I really want to do and that is to help people to change their
FFFC: What prompted you to make this your career?
CF: It was a full circle thing. In my early 20’s I got a chance to go to Bally’s for the first time. I like helping others. When I started at Bally’s I realized it was a sales job. I wasn’t comfortable with selling. I had a cleaning business for 10 years, sold mortgages and I sold cars. I got into coaching lacrosse and training athletes and one thing led to another. This was my passion and my calling and He brought me back to it.
FFFC: What prompted you to start the Believer’s Fitness Boot Camp?
CF: I (like most christians) was facing some challenges and struggling with my faith, but each time I was called back to church, it was at a gym that I met
people who brought me back to it. After realizing that I want to dedicate my life to serving God, and not man, I realized that this is what He wants me to
do, so Believers Fitness Boot Camp was born! I want people to realize that they can believe in something bigger than themselves.
FFFC: What do you like most about what you do?
CF: Changing people’s lives by getting them to realize that the ability to change their life is already inside of them.
FFFC: What is your favorite exercise routine?
CF: Multi-Joint Interval Training. If you don’t know what that is, that is why you have to check us out!!
FFFC : What do you consider the most useful workout equipment?
CF: Your own body.
FFFC: What general tips do you have for the average woman balancing family, career with health and fitness?
CF: Is this a trick question? Well it depends. We all think we are too busy, you have to be willing to do what the other busy moms are not willing to do. Get up a little earlier, stay up a little later. You get out of it what you put into it.
FFFC: Do you have any special events coming up?
CF: I have a new location I am working on and as soon as it is ready I will let you know.
FFFC: Thank you Coach Falcon for granting us an interview and sharing your insight.
