I never imagined in my lifetime I would be considered athletic. In middle school, I ran one mile, fainted from low blood pressure, and cost my parents a few hundred dollars for riding in an ambulance. I tried different sports throughout the years, but none ever felt right. 


In January 2015, I discovered powerlifting and it was like a whole new world opened up to me. I finally found what I was looking for. Today, I am an elite-ranked powerlifter who competes in the USPA. I hold one IPL world record and two California state records for bench press, my best and favorite lift. Powerlifting is my passion, and I would describe it as my soulmate in hobby form. Aside from fitness, I was born and raised in the heart of San Gabriel Valley, the land of dim sum and boba, and I am currently a dental student at Western University, College of Dental Medicine in Pomona, CA.


KFKF aligns with my values as an athlete and a foodie because of my overwhelming love for powerlifting and dessert. Their message resonates with me because a healthy lifestyle should include something like a pound of fitness, a cup of indulgence, and loads of self-love on top. I believe in KFKF’s movement and continue to watch it grow into something well-known and loved in the entire fitness community.


My name is Gloria, I may be a floss boss but I have a huge sweet tooth. I lift weights but I also lift donuts to my face and I am Kinda Fit Kinda Fat."
