Thanks for visiting, I’m Alex Pineda, visionary at FLYTE. After being my mother’s primary care giver and losing her to a painful 3 year battle with cancer, I witnessed first hand the fragility of our lives. As I witnessed her health deteriorate day by day, I realized that our bodies are a magnificent creation, yet extremely fragile. I also had the opportunity to experience God’s love, grace, and mercy on her life as she was transformed inwardly into a completely different person day after day.
A few months after her death (48), I felt into a deep depression with constant panic attacks and anxiety. I learned that no matter how clean you eat, how much you exercise, how much you rest, or how many supplements you take on a daily basis, your body will eventually fail you. I realized that in those difficult moments, we need someone much greater than ourselves to carry us through those trials that we will inevitably face in life. I understood that people will fail you, your bank account will fail you, your health will fail you, but that God never will.
Thankfully, God pursued me through this dark and painful season. As I came to the end of myself, I was desperate for change and decided to submit my life to His lordship vowing that I would spend the rest of my life serving Him and others. Shortly after, the vision behind Flyte was laid on my heart calling us to be a light in our industry while reconciling others to Christ through Health & Fitness. It’s been five years and we are truly grateful and humbled by the opportunity to serve you. Thank you for your constatn love, loyalty, and support over the years!
