I was born and raised in Tokyo until I spent my high school years in Florida for 4 years. Now I’m back in Tokyo, attending a university and working as a fitness trainer.
When did your interest in being a fitness trainer start?
I started working out in high school but I would have never imagined I would end up working as a fitness trainer back then. When the opportunity came, I thought, how lucky would I be to do what I love as a job – and now I absolutely love working as a trainer.
Do you keep to a strict diet or allow cheat days?
I don’t really keep a strict diet, I focus more on eating healthy to strengthen my body so that’s fun. I do try not to eat junky food but I still do time to time when I crave it. I think the most important thing to keep in mind is that stress is as bad as eating junks – if your strict diet is stressing you out, it’s not worth it for your body.
Is there any gym etiquette which you wish more people adhered to?
Umm I guess no staring at girls with only sports bras (for men) haha. It’s really uncomfortable, especially in Japan.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a shopaholic are you?
Maybe like 3? I’m not much of a shopper but I do have an obsession with bikinis.
Do you believe in any superstition?
In Japan, certain years (different for each genders) are believed to be bad years and that you need to go through a certain ritual either the year before, on the year, or after. I only heard about it recently, and found out the year when I was 19 years old was the bad year – it freaked me out because that year was one of the worst times of my life.
If you could go on a free holiday, where would your destination be?
Umm that’s a hard question. I love traveling so I always have a lot of places in my mind that I wish I could go to. But if I were to pick one, I guess it’d be Morocco. I am dying to explore their different cities and its beautiful culture.
What is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
I’ve been proposed from a guy I met that night haha,
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Yuina. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
The ability to make others want to get to know you and having confidence in yourself, to me, is sexy.
