My name is Jeshua Pope. I’m born and raised in Lawrenceville Georgia (That’s rare to hear!). I’ve always been active from a very young age. My parents always had me outside playing basketball, football, running, or any kind of activity., I maintained my active lifestyle by joining gyms and, playing some sports with friends. I also would help my friends train to walk-on to some college teams. A few of them made it, and that was a really great feeling for me to see them succeed. In my last year of college, I interned with Tarryn Hoff (as seen on GoTarryn TV). Tarryn helped get my feet in the water of personal training. I realized how much I love to help people stay active, and I had so much fun doing it. Tarryn introduced me to Max Nazaire at Fit2DMax. Max Nazaire mentored me for about 7 months and counting. While working for him, the studio in Roswell won the best small fitness studio in Atlanta (voted by “Atlanta’s Best Self Magazine”). I live in Lawrenceville, so that daily to and from Roswell became difficult. I also needed to be home to help out my wife, we are newlyweds. These thoughts led me to opening up Flex Appeal. I’m starting off with a concept like my mentor Tarryn, and in the future I will have a studio like Max.
