We had the good fortune of connecting with Jesus Duarte and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jesus, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Not falling into Comfortability.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Being a nutritional coach and personal trainer has allowed me to have huge impacts in the lives of some amazing people. My skill of easily being able to diversify to each individuals needs has allowed me to build a more comfortable and private relationship with my clients. This shows me more insight on their lives helping me figure out the proper ways of reaching their health and fitness goals. Which is one of the reasons why I got into fitness, to help people find their self-love. To be able to impact peoples lives gives me more dedication to do what I love. With many lessons being learned, I have over came challenges and never gave up as hard as it got. This is what Flexing PT is all about, never giving up no matter how hard things got, working hard to achieve any goal and prevailing with grace.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Just don’t tell my clients but definitely taking them to the best taco places in town! Living, breathing fitness outdoor activities are a must. Going hiking in the beautiful Rocky Mountains to see some of its hidden gems, like the Great Sand dunes, all the fourteeners that time allows, taking a relaxing motorcycle ride through the mountains and attending a concert at Red Rocks.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to thank every single person that has had trust and faith in my potential. A special thanks to Siera Capesius and Alex Carneiro for letting me be part of the AC Driven and Nourished team.
