Whenever people ask me what I love most about the city, this is my reply. There are many reasons to love San Francisco, cost of living aside, but it really comes down to the people.
I met Justin and Bryant Sharifi, married co-founders of the training facility Perform for Life, at one of the first networking events I attended when I moved to the West Coast just three short years ago. The event was hosted by the Golden Gate Business Association, which is the oldest LGBT Chamber of Commerce in the nation. We met up at our local places of business to learn more about one another, and right away I knew that we had similar philosophies when it came to movement, fitness, and our community. This discovery was both refreshing and exciting. The tagline for their gym is even “Exercise, Socialize, Revitalize”, a sentiment that really resonates with me. Even as we sat there discussing our biggest influences and how we hoped to grow into the future, I wasn’t quite sure how we fit together yet.
Fast forward three years, the Sharifi’s are opening a new location in Hayes Valley and partnering with me to help add another layer to their already thriving platform of soft tissue injury rehabilitation and human performance. All of the Perform for Life trainers come from diverse athletic backgrounds and have studied in Kinesiology and Exercise Science. They also regularly engage in continuing education opportunities. Each week the entire team gathers to review different techniques and movements in order to share knowledge and help make each trainer become more well rounded. To me, this is an ideal home for my practice. I could not be more excited to interact with these amazing coaches on a regular basis and construct the best movement strategies for our clients and ourselves.
With that, I would like to invite you to our
