Positive Role Model at 51 in Fitness

Positive Role Model at 51 in Fitness
By Evren Martinez

Last month’s FitView was a reminder that we all can look and feel our best at any age. I’m saying, 51 is the new 21 and I’m not alone. One man I know shows this example so well. His name is Pedro Teves. I met Pedro Teves many years back and we instantly became friends. We both share the same passion for a healthy lifestyle. Outside of our friendship, there’s no doubt that he’s an inspiration not only to myself but also to his students. Pedro is not only a High School History teacher but also a devoted husband to his lovely wife Monika, a great father of three young children, and a hard worker in all that he does. I’m just amazed and motivated by the man. He is all that above and yet he still finds the time to exercise and live the healthiest life possible with all the hustle and bustle it can bring. I’d say please enjoy my interview with the hope that he will give you the motivation to be the best you can be at any age. My friend, Pedro, is a positive role model for us all.

About the Author:

I answered the call back in 1983; mixing Music and Entertainment with an eccentric European style has always come easy for me. In the early 80's I was the Disc Jockey for most of the high school dances in Modesto. In the late 80's I found myself in Hollywood working as a dancer and sound engineer for various professional recording industries. In 1990 my wife of 25 years and I started (The Quake Mobile DJ ®) which was seeded from San Francisco's 1985, The Quake, radio station that only lasted a short while on the air. 26 years later The Quake Mobile DJ is bigger & better than ever in the Entertainment industry. Real-Estate, photojournalism, event promoter, saving animals, travel and fitness are a few other of my interests. I also enjoy motivational speaking to children and to those who are struggling with addiction. In my life, I have always been a very direct person and once I see a goal I won't quit till I've achieved it. But out of all of the above I feel in my heart that the best inspiration in my life is my wife and my love for the faith that I practice. Phil 4:20
