Semisi is passionate about fitness and nutrition, and feels that they should be implemented as a lifestyle as opposed to it being a chore. He has been involved in athletics and fitness since he was a pre-teen, growing up in Aotearoa (New Zealand), participating in sports like Rugby, Aussie Rules, Cricket, Grass Hockey and Track & Field.
Semisi is native to the South Pacific Islands of Tonga, but grew up in Auckland, New Zealand and moved to California in 1995. In 2001 Semisi earned NASM, ACE & Apex nutrition certifications and worked as a Trainer Fit Pro for 24 hour Fitness in Scottsdale & Phoenix, Arizona. He returned to Menlo Park in 2008, and joined Menlo Swim and Sport as a Menlo Swim School Instructor, Camp Menlo Lead Counselor and Fitness Coach for Menlo Fit Boot Camp, which he truly enjoys – from helping, teaching, and coaching community members, to practicing what he preaches by taking the Wednesday morning 6am “Tabata” class. Semisi is also very proud of his Sunday Trail Runners group and welcomes any running levels – “the most challenging part is showing up!”
Semisi’s personality, passion, focus, professionalism and high octane energy will get you motivated, inspired, dancing, laughing, sweating & hungry for another tough, but fun filled class.
