Who are you? Tell us a little about yourself or something that would surprise us.
I’m a proud family man that is madly in love my wife and 2 little girls. I grew up in Alief and have been in TX since I was 1. I’m a recovering sneaker head and I’m trying to break the habit. I love sports in general and my favorite sport is Basketball. I’m all in (all the H-Town teams)!
How and when were you introduced to Behemoth?
My good friend (Rene Vasquez) told me about Behemoth when he and his wife did a Saturday class. He bought it for her birthday. I couldn’t get it out of my head that I needed to head on over and check it out, so one day I finally mustered up the courage to set up an appointment to check it out.
What are you most proud of, physically, mentally or both since beginning with us?
I’m most proud of the way my thinking has changed since coming here. I think the mental hurdle is the hardest to get over. You never know what you can achieve if you don’t try!
The way this place makes me feel is hard to describe. It’d be hard for another gym to replicate. The fact that every one cares about each other and how the coaches really care about you as a person goes a long way in my book. It’s not just a training session to me. It’s become a way of life.
What next? What are you excited about pursuing here in the future?
I’m really excited to see what this next year brings. My ultimate goal is to be able to do every movement RX. I know that’s a big goal and I’m going to keep working towards it.
