In this short article I'm going to tell you a little, how without looking for it, I did what I liked most as a child, which was bodybuilding, a way of life for many years and a job today.

As a teenager, instead of buying me the typical magazines that many young people bought, I would tell my mother to buy me bodybuilding magazines without thinking that someday I was going to be a little strong too like those guys whose physiques I liked so much.

When I was 18 years old, with some knowledge acquired after reading many books and magazines of our sport, I joined the gym with the aim of gaining some weight because at that time my physique was very thin. There I met the man who was my first trainer at that time and who, above all, instilled in me the values of this sport. In little more than a year I entered my first competition.

For more than 15 years, I dedicated myself to the world of competition, combining it with the work I was doing at the time.

My initial jobs had nothing to do with the world of bodybuilding and fitness but over time I started training and got my first job in a gym.

After years as a gym instructor, I was asked to run a sports nutrition store and with a lot of enthusiasm and excitement I started this new project.

Here I started to advise a trusted customer who asked me to do so, in exchange for buying the products in the store.

A couple of years later, together with my partner Vanesa, we decided to open our own sports nutrition store, back in 2008. There I continued advising people for free, until the crisis arrived and seeing that in order to continue with my training and my business I also had to work in private security, I decided to start taking a small group of clients while continuing with my sports career.

I was always a very self-taught person and although I listened to my trainers, I liked to learn and I was passionate about everything related to the world of bodybuilding.

During my time as a competitor, I was fortunate to work with great trainers of national and international renown. Each and every one of them, in a way, provided me with a wide variety of knowledge, which helped shape my vision of the sport.

Although at the age of 19 I had already started to help out in some competitions for friends who asked me to do so, it wasn't until I retired that I started to focus more on this aspect as a coach due to the demand I had.

Little by little, without realizing it, it became the work I currently do. A job that fulfills me completely and although it is a job that requires a lot of dedication and effort, it makes me feel fulfilled and proud to see that little by little the work is paying off.

Don't stop fighting for your dreams, and train yourselves to be able to dedicate yourselves to what really fulfills you and makes you happy. It has taken me 22 years to get to the point where I am today.

That's why I would like to tell you not to be in a hurry and to put a lot of enthusiasm into whatever you do.

I would like to end this article with a phrase that I like so much from the Chinese philosopher Confucius:

«Elige un trabajo que te guste y no tendrás que trabajar ni un día más de tu vida».

I hope you liked this mini summary of my life. You can leave a comment if you feel like it.

I send you a big hug and thank you for reading us.
