AQLife was started 20 years ago in 1990 by Vincent Alvarez and was based in Orange County and Los Angeles County. It was originally called Athletes for Air Quality and focused primarily on improving air quality in the Orange and Los Angeles Counties.

In 1990 AQLife promoted awareness and assistance for many environmental groups, worked with the Air Quality Management District, and attended focus groups involved in designing zero emission vehicles.

After about one year the name was changed to Athletes for the Quality of Life (AQLife) to better encompass what we had to offer such as nutrition and exercise information along with many healthy lifestyle changes that could improve a person's quality of life.

AQLife worked with many companies such as Western Digital, 3M, Sorin BioMedical, CSULB, Allergan and many others by providing nutrition and exercise information. At the same time AQLife increased awareness of Non-Profit organizations that help the community such as the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, LA Mission, American Heart Association, Santa Monica's Save the Bay, and many others.

They also did ultra marathon athletic events that gained media attention which further helped them promote these Non-Profit Organizations.

Having moved to San Diego, AQLife is very excited to once again partner with the community through awareness, education and motivation while staying fit, and having Fun while we do it.
