How did you get started with fitness and competing?
In Mexico as a kid, being overweight was a common problem in my family and in Mexico in general. Growing up, I had bad eating habits; I was overweight and really wanted to get in shape. My family owned a gym, and I would always admire the pictures of famous physiques hanging on the wall. At that time, I could only dream about achieving a physique like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone.
What motivates you?
For me its really about set goals/dreams that challenge myself and acomplished, also because I’ve been on both sides of the coin, I have become very passionate about helping others achieve their own transformations and a healthier quality of life. I feel it’s my mission & strongest motivation and of course I get a lot of daily motivation of some natural athletes that I admire and try to keep up with their dedication and physiques.
