After graduating from Rice University in 2004, Forrest worked at Eckerd Outdoor Wilderness Camp for repeat youth offenders in Milton, FL. An injury to his foot restricted him to the use of a cane and forced Forrest to retire from Eckerd. Unwilling to accept doctor’s predictions that this situation would be permanent, Forrest turned to the training department of Gold’s Gym in San Antonio , TX . He discovered during his rehabilitation that his passion for helping others could be channeled through Personal Training. He had soon completed his Personal Training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine specializing in injury rehabilitation and functional training. He has since completed continuing education specialties in Corrective Exercise and Performance Enhancement allowing him to work with everything from those with serious injuries to athletes. Forrest currently lives in Charleston, SC and works as the Personal Training Director for the Gold’s Gyms in the Charleston area.
