NOAH DISCUSSES WITH ME HOW HE BUILT HIS FITNESS CENTER, THE CHALLENGES HE ENDURED, MEETING HIS WIFE AND FINDING THAT ALL TOO ELUSIVE BALANCE
I "met" Noah when I worked for a mutual acquaintance. We've never met in person which is tragic and he won't move his fitness center and wife to Reno which I keep telling him is frustrating as hell. He has boundless energy and drive and I'd love to go visit for a race (or two) of his. He keeps everyone around him on their toes - in a good way - and is driven to do more.
What a friend says:
Noah Kinner - The Founder The brains behind Urban Fitness Oakland, Noah carries a diverse background including but not limited to, Restaurant and Hotel Management at the French Culinary Institute via Cornell Hotel School, 10 years mixed martial arts and weapons training, competition tree felling (please have him explain), entrepreneur, baker (a mean NY sourdough) and many other things. Though a true east coaster at heart, Noah has come to love (don't tell him we said love) the bay area. Noah moved from New York over 10 years ago to start the gym he couldn't find. What was born and developed has turned into something epic, growing every day. He is an industry expert and has trained numerous clients from federal agents to Olympic Coaches. Don't let his outer straight to the point personality faze you, he's sweet as ever, loyal to the bone and gives the best hugs ever. Just stay on his good side. (ACE)
