About our team
Holly Peng MD
Family Physician and Integrative Health Coach
"I believe the foundation of "being the best version of you" and "living life to its fullest" is having HEALTH. And health is not the absence of disease but an optimal state of mental, physical and spiritual well being. I believe that everybody in this world can tap into that deserved authentic health and there is nothing more important.
Growing up with my grandmother (who lived until she was 105) I would hear her mantra in my ears -"watch over your health- without it, nothing else matters". All the money in the world would be useless without your health. Without your health, you cannot be en effective parent, worker, or leader.
I believe furthermore that we were put on this earth to experience an exuberant life and the power to attain it is inside each one of us.
Here at Island Trek Fitness, we are dedicated to helping you achieve this exuberant life."
