Roy Montez, Strategic Marketing Manager (BE FIT), EXCHANGE

My why.

From an early age, I’ve been influenced and motivated by athletics and teamwork. Throughout my youth, sports have played a key role in my development as a person. Characteristics were formed during this time that would carry me through life’s lessons, and which would ultimately aid in building a better and stronger version of myself.

Through my involvement with NCAA Division I collegiate soccer to multiple marathons and years of strength training, sports nutrition and supplementation, my passion to inspire others to reach their goals has been at the forefront of my work and is at new heights. Yoga and meditation has taught me the importance of psychological health by reflection, flexibility and balance.

Through Health and Wellness I’ve acquired the support system, mental fortitude and work ethic that have been at the core of my principles. Remembering that this journey should be fun and exciting, ever challenging and ever forward.

Entering my 10th year with the Exchange, I couldn’t be more proud to work alongside and serve those who serve. Living a healthy lifestyle does not happen overnight, but with encouragement, motivation, consistency and hard work, together we can lead a healthy life and BeFit.
