Both are passionate about helping people achieve their personal fitness goals.  Arnie has been active most of his life and enjoys seeing the progress Run 2 Be Fit members achieve when committing to the program.  Grace was not active most of her life, but after having her first child and gaining more weight that planned, she set a goal to lose it and become more active.  She lost close to 50 pounds and after having two more kids, has managed to maintain her weight and be in the best shape of her life.  She also enjoys seeing the progress Run 2 Be Fit members have achieved by committing to the program.  She actively seeks new challenges and is constantly looking for ways to introduce new exercises/programs to the members.
