Aramais Paronyan, MD, studied medicine at Yerevan State Medical Institute and treated patients for many years in Los Angeles. Dr. Aramais Paronyan has a diverse set of hobbies, including fishing, yachting, and skydiving.

Skydiving is a demanding physical activity that involves throwing oneself from a moving aircraft and falling for thousands of feet at around 120 miles per hour before parachuting to the ground. Though a high-risk activity, it comes with numerous benefits.

Manipulating the parachute involves several muscles in the upper arm, while perfecting the landing requires that the muscles at the lower extremities be toned. Carrying skydiving equipment may also be an exercise in itself given its considerable weight.

Skydiving also has psychological benefits. Because of the extreme nature of the activity, skydivers are required to focus on the situation at hand, which helps them to set aside distractions and the concerns of everyday life. Skydiving also boosts confidence, as it is an activity that not many individuals can push themselves to do.
