WILL PASZEK

OWNER/OPERATOR, NASM CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER

“I decided to open Will Power Community Fitness in La Mesa, CA after a series of life events that left me searching for purpose and a way to combine my passion for fitness with my desire to create community & help people achieve their goals. I spent my whole professional life working for large companies and I was fortunate to have enjoyed great success in my career. As I got older, I found myself feeling less motivated by corporate culture and a desire for something more meaningful began to grow. After the death of my father, a divorce and the end of my 20-year career leading customer experience, sales & marking teams at a top 10 U.S. bank, I decided it was time to pursue my passion.”

“My vision was to create a fitness community – a place where people who might not otherwise cross paths come together and find common ground through health, fitness, strength and self-improvement. The gym I had been going to became a huge part of my life and my workouts there got me through some difficult times. When I learned the business was for sale, I knew that was the sign I needed to jump in and start my passion project. I became a certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, bought the gym…and Will Power Community Fitness was born.”
