What's tight in your life?

So much job love right now; I work with rad inspiring people all day everyday. I'm also reconnected with my baby sister kimchi.

Signature move?

My skipping game.

Something people might not know about you?

I'm gay. It took me a long time to say that comfortably.

What’s your favourite workout song?

I love bass heavy tracks, and the sounds of synth. Freedom by Beyoncé tho. I heard it for the first time in class last week - daaamn.

What’s your spirit animal and why?

I think my spirit animal would be a flying squirrel. Why? 'Cause I'm cute and I move faster than your eyeball.

Who would be your celebrity best friend?

Ellen Page. 'Cause she cool like dat; she cool like dat.

Favourite way to procrastinate?

Oh God. I am a master at procrastination. Broad city. Hands down. #obsessed.

What was the last thing you read?

I re-read #22 tiny beautiful things by Cheryl Strayed and cried; I cry every time. Sometimes I think I read it cause I need to cry.

If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?

I wanna go to my hometown city Kanazawa, Japan. Chill on the rice fields if there is any and meet some of my ancestors. Learn how to drink tea proper, and make a mean sukiyaki.

What does The Tight Life mean to you?

  • Showing up
  • Sharing my gifts
  • Pushing past the fears
  • Keeping the faith
  • Self expression
  • Self love
  • Kindness, always

What is your fitness goal?

I want to cultivate consistency and discipline. Someone great once told me that the Gods wake up with the sun. I wanna wake up with the Gods, and the sun. I also want a coconut bum.

Do you have any pre or post workout rituals?

Pre work out rituals = eggs; I love my eggs. Especially the eggs from Harvest, they are perfect. I could eat them everyday. Ok, I'll stop. Post? Water. And probably more eggs.

How do you treat yourself?

Oh wow, all the time. For example: Today I saw these super sweet/not so cheap sunglasses that I reallllly wanted. I thought to myself, I could fall into a hole and die tomorrow. It could for real happen; at least do it with the shades man.

This summer my big plans are...

My sister and I are headed to Costa Rica for the month of August. We're gonna go celebrate my mama in the sun. Can't wait to watch the tiniest little baby turtles hatch, eat all the coconuts, and catch some waves. Soo stoked!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
