I had the chance to interview with Voyage LA Magazine last month. I was humbled they published our interview on their website that I wanted to share it with you.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Aftann Taijeron.
Aftann, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Aftann: I was randomly hired at Curves for Women in Destin, Florida. I knew nothing about it, but I needed a job. Curves for Women is a 30-minute circuit workout for women only. My job was to demonstrate how to use the equipment, encourage them and keep them accountable by weighing and measuring them every month. I loved the feeling I got when women would lose weight. Some would cry. Some would jump up and down, and some just walked around with more confidence. I fell in love with helping people become fitter, healthier, and more confident. I decided then to become an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer in 2005. Years later, I furthered my studies and became an ISSA Certified Nutrition Specialist in 2011. I currently train clients at a private gym in Huntington Beach, and I work with clients online all over the United States, building customized meal plans.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Aftann: The biggest struggle was moving from Florida to California and starting from scratch. I had zero clients and didn’t know anyone. But I worked hard, and over time I built a successful personal training business. I am currently booked and have a client waiting list.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about aftannFIT?

How do you think about happiness?
Aftann: My family makes me happy. I have a fun, handsome husband and two healthy kids, ages 2 and 5. Warm weather also makes me happy! Ha! I know that sounds crazy, but I grew up in Wyoming, and it’s cold there!
