Mint is a long time and consistent member of our Performance Fitness program. You can also check out our previous members of the month here.

Name: Mint Cooper

What city were you born in? Prachin Buri, Eastern Thailand.

What do you do when you’re not working out at Athletic Lab (occupation, hobbies, etc)? Photography for fun. I used to do some translation work, but not anymore.

What’s your favorite exercise? Least favorite? My most favorite exercise is pull up and my least is the Air Bike 😀.

What do you feel has been your greatest accomplishment since you started training? My greatest accomplishment here at Athletic Lab is seeing the improvement in overall performance: finishing the benchmark workouts with better time/reps, I can lift heavier weights, I have better form, and I’m reaching my set goal. My goal last year was bar muscle up and with the help/techniques/ support from staff and friends, it happened. This year, my goal is to do a free handstand and perhaps some handstand walks.

I can lift heavier weights, I have better form, and I’m reaching my set goal.

What motivates you? The fun environment is what motivates me. I don’t like to workout by myself and I usually perform better with friends. I always look forward to coming to the gym not only to exercise, but also to socialize and have fun.
