I am honored that my passion is recognized, and I am excited to proudly carry the torch for the next generation,” said Panda. “My lifelong goal has been to share motivation and positivity within the fitness community and this partnership with Gold’s Gym gives me another platform to inspire others and take them on this journey with me.”
