What We Believe In
🌱 Inspiring Growth
Whether you create for a living, run a business, or save lives, we believe better health leads to better work. We believe being fitter spreads to other aspects of life.
💧 Finding Balance
We believe balance is liquid. Work. Play. Relationships. Life is messy and "balance" isn't perfection. Balance is being able to choose what's important to us.
⛰ Do Your Thing
Be unapologetically you. Be yourself and proud. We believe growth comes from creating better versions of ourselves. While betterment is our goal, it starts from understanding ourselves.
Hi, I'm Milton. 👋🏾
I created White Lotus to inspire growth. 🌱
I help people navigate through the fitness space.
Growing up, I wasn’t very athletic. My dad made me join sports teams where I dreaded every practice and game. I also had to go to Tae Kwon Do after school and most weekends, which I also wasn’t a fan of because it took away from playing video games.
In middle school, I started to care about my image. So naturally, you guessed it- my goal was to get a six pack. I didn't know what I was doing, but I started doing sit-ups and pushups before bed while watching late night TV.
The Coaching Journey
Then in high school, I grew obsessed with “not-so-common” hobbies like skateboarding, breakdancing, and jiu-jitsu. When I got to college I was doing traditional bodybuilding workouts at commercial gym, then I found CrossFit. Just like my previous hobbies I became obsessed and immersed myself in the CrossFit life.
I bought equipment, did a ton of research and started training. A couple of months into it, my coworker asked me if he could pay me to train him. I told him I didn’t really know much but he insisted. I loved it. I learned as much as I could about training and at that point, I knew I wanted to help people with their fitness journey.
Soon after, I got my CrossFit Level 1, then started working at CrossFit Lion’s Den, a local gym. I switched my major from Nursing to Exercise Science. I decided that the cost didn’t equate to the value so I stopped when I got my Associates Degree.
I’ve been a coach since 2013. I pivoted to online coaching in 2020 during the pandemic with White Lotus. And here we are today.
