Pledge Training Team

Hi there! First off, I am a Swedish Texan! I have a degree and background in Social Work. After coaching people on their mental wellness for over 10 years, I decided to combine it with physical coaching as well. Training has helped me develop mental stability and health, so that is exactly what I want to share with others. I became a certified personal trainer at the National Personal Training Institute of Houston. I employ a holistic approach and will challenge you not only physically, but mentally as well, since it all starts with your state of mind!

William Cheung

Pledge Training Team

Hello! My friend’s call me Will, and so should you! I’m a NASM certified personal trainer, and I love educating others and promoting a healthy lifestyle. My fitness journey began when I decided I wanted to prioritize my mental and physical health. Realizing the quality of the rest of my life would be predicated on my health made it a simple, yet powerful decision. After seeing and feeling how much a proper wellness regimen helped me, I felt a passion to spread the knowledge I’ve learned, helping others achieve their own goals!

Pledge Training Team

One of the hardest things to do is to go through life not being able to enjoy the activities you love because an injury. Growing up as an athlete and dancer, I dealt with injuries, and multiple knee surgeries. After my second torn ACL + Meniscus tear, I decided to become Licensed as a Massage Therapist (2016). I went through 4 knee surgeries in total. It was no walk in the park, but my journey through recovery and rehab led me to become a Certified Personal Trainer (2019). I developed a passion to help others enhance performance, improve movement, and their quality of life along the way. The combination of both my CPT and LMT certifications allow me to understand biomechanics and efficiently target imbalances keeping you from feeling your best! Let’s create momentum, but not before we adjust you in the right direction!

My passion lies in health and wellness and causing a positive change in people’s lives. I’m very persistent and won’t give up until I see results, so I inspire my Pledges to do the same. I believe integrity and work ethic are the biggest tools in one’s arsenal, since in this life you reap what you sow. This career allows me to help the people I love. Those that work with me have a future with less medication, balanced insulin levels and longer, vibrant life spans. My family is one of my biggest motivators and the fact I can help them makes me feel strong and accomplished. They inspire me to become a better version of myself physically, mentally, and spiritually. I love helping our Pledge families with their children as I have a background in soccer, basketball, volleyball, and dance.
