Kamal Adbul-Khaaliq switched careers from working at a psychiatric hospital to becoming a
personal trainer at Lifetime fitness. This transition in life lead him to discover his passion was
more about helping people discover how their fitness increases their fulfillment and achievement
in their personal and social lives. Now as a coach and owner at Invictus Fitness Solutions he
feels he found his calling, direction, and passion at life.
Dj Davis entered the field of personal training a career almost by a fluke. He had moved out to
California to go to Cal Poly with the intentions of pursuing law school and to play football
primarily. Realizing quickly that wasn't his, calling he moved to San Diego to find himself. He
happened into a 24-Hour Fitness and noticed someone working with a client and thought it was
something he could see himself doing, even if only while he figured out what I wanted to do. 14
years later, he is so grateful to say that his calling in life was to help facilitate change in others’
health and fitness. For him the most gratifying feeling is seeing the clients overcome obstacles
in making their respective life change.
