Arien is a health & fitness coach, in the Los Angeles, CA area. Arien’s health and fitness journey started from a young age where he was a multi-sport athlete competing in football, soccer, baseball, basketball and track/field. The diversity of his athletic background has influenced not just his training style but also his life.
In April 2009, while in high school Arien ruptured his patella tendon during plyometric training. Overcoming this setback, after surgery Arien received All-Conference and All-Region honors in football 5 months later. This inspired Arien to focus his college studies in Pre-Medicine/ Exercise and Sport Science. At UNC Chapel Hill, Arien competed on the varsity football team where he played on the offensive line.
After his final game of his senior season Arien decided to go on a fitness journey of his own. From January 2015 to May 2015, Arien lost almost 60lbs dropping from his playing weight of 290lbs. This experience continues to motivate Arien to help others with their health & fitness goals. Arien has been training in the Los Angeles area since 2017.
