B.S. Kinesiology Exercise Science (2017)
"I lost a total of 70 pounds all on my own through pure intrinsic motivation." Jacob Aguirre is a class of 2017 graduate who majored in Exercise Science. His motivation is wanting to be better than average and trying to utilize his fullest potential. Something very inspiring about Jacob is that he recently lost a total of 70 pounds and did it completely on his own without personal training. Jacob wanted to see how far he could push his body both physically and mentally. An example of how he attained his goal was by running three miles on our indoor track on a daily basis. Jacob enjoys working out and going to the gym in general, but his favorite workout/exercise is the lateral pulldown. He aspires to be a certified personal trainer in both Texas and Florida in the future and intends to open up a personal training practice in South Beach. We congratulate Jacob on his journey to be fit and utilizing the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center to attain his aspirations.
