Born in California, Bear’s love for sports at an early age led him to Cornell College where he majored in Kinesiology, played Soccer, and participated in Track and Field. Co-Founding Renovo Fitness brought Bear’s love for exercise, and interest in helping people together, and there’s no place he’d rather be than working with a client to achieve their goals!
