PACIFIC Xtreme Combat heavyweight champion and jiujitsu gold medalist Kelvin Fitial aims to further his education as a personal trainer during the lockdown.

“I am exploring other certifications,” he said. “I could get into the National Academy of Sports Medicine during the lockdown. Hopefully, I could expand my knowledge and skills in other areas as a personal trainer.”

In addition to mixed martial arts, Fitial plays football and basketball. As a basketball player, he has competed in many on- and off-island tournaments.

“I have always loved basketball, but I’m always willing to play any other sport we have on island,” he said. “Right now my focus is to stay fit and healthy. Whether it’s morning runs, training sessions at home or on the Beach Road pathway, I try my best every day to stay in top shape and to prepare myself for any future sport events.”

As a father and husband, Fitial also dedicates his lockdown time to his family. “I have more time to be with my son and to do more things together.”

He added, “Stay safe CNMI. Remember to wash your hands frequently and practice social distancing. We’ll get through this together.”
