MEET ATHLETES FROM TEAM 5%

MEET THE 5% ATHLETES ATTENDING THE ARNOLD

DILLON WILLIAMS

I grew up a chubby kid that was kind of introverted. I got into fitness at the age of 12 years old, due to being picked on and teased because of my weight. I grew up a chubby kid that was kind of introverted. I started playing football to try and stay active at about 10 years old. My 7th-grade gym teacher asked if I planned to play football in high school. I told him, yes, and he got me in the weight room after school every day. This resulted in me massively increasing my strength and developing a passion for the weights and how lifting made me feel, both mentally & physically.

I try to imprint this to all of the personal training clients I work with. I consider it an honor and a privilege to be given the opportunity to positively impact someone's life through training. Seeing the mental and physical changes as my clients start feeling better about themselves, is a major driving force in why I chose to become a trainer. Being in top physical shape is what keeps me personally driven. I also enjoy learning what drives each of my clients and working that into our sessions. This usually pulls the maximum effort out of them and ensures their results.

ELIZ FULOP

Between getting my start training for the Olympics in cross-country skiing/biathlon at age 7, competing in the World Cup at age 9, and moving to the U.S. at age 13, I fell into a dark time of heavy partying and eating disorders in High School. After graduating, I found out that because I was not a green card holder I would not be able to attend a University so I turned to the gym as my outlet for stress, loneliness and getting over eating disorders while going to Community College.

After graduating, I found out that because I was not a green card holder I would not be able to attend a University so I turned to the gym as my outlet for stress, loneliness and getting over eating disorders while going to Community College. The gym saved me. I became obsessed with lifting heavy and learning what foods to put in my body; how they affected my performance and my aesthetics and slowly started to transform my mind and body on my own. I got approached at the gym multiple times about competing, and even though I had no idea what that would entail, I jumped right in at 19. I had my fair share of "bad coaches" and "cookie cutter diets" and that made me even more passionate to experiment on myself and find out the truth about prepping and transforming the body the right way.

I became a personal trainer and devoted my time to helping others achieve physical, mental and spiritual health. After taking a couple years off of competing to build an e-commerce business, get married and have a baby, I jumped right back into my fitness journey and started helping moms achieve their dream bodies postpartum and won overall in the Wellness division at the Patriot Challenge in Las Vegas. I now train with Team Elite Physique and I will be competing at Nationals and going for my pro-card in 2022.

CHRIS MYERS

I got heavily into fitness after the military and several life threatening injuries where I was told I wouldn't be able to be active in fitness like I was used to. At 26 years old, I couldn't see that happening so I got to work on getting stronger daily, until I developed into being a full blown athlete and personal trainer.

My life and what I have been through, motivates me every day. Not to sound cocky or full of myself, but at one point I had a hard time walking let alone lifting weights. All those times I was told no or I got knocked down, I got right back up and that has always been my motivation.

KRIS "KABLE" MARTINEZ

My name is Chris "Kable" Martinez, and just like your typical kid, I grew up playing sports such as baseball and football.

I began weight training at the age of 15 for sports, and after reading bodybuilding magazines and seeing what the human body was capable of transforming into, I competed in my first bodybuilding show as a teenager at the NPC Florida State Bodybuilding Competition and won my age division.

After graduating high school, I decided to join the United States Army and serve my country as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne, where I served as an Infantry Scout/Recon.

EMMA ISAACSON

As a child, I was always interested in anything athletic. After I was given a punching bag at 5 years old, I was involved in karate, soccer and softball. I ended up choosing to go to college on a soccer scholarship where I started accumulating injuries. The most serious being that I tore my right shoulder twice, and my right PCL twice. In order to avoid surgeries I started rehabilitating in the gym.

After a few years, I enlisted in the Air Force but I was medically discharged shortly after for a wear and tear injury in my hip. In an attempt to re-enlist, I dedicated my life even more to fitness. It was in the gym where I found the most driven and genuine people. Lifting evolved from physical therapy to mental therapy.

BOBBY TOMLINSON

I got into fitness because I was bullied for being chubby when I was younger. I lost most of the chub, then when I started playing football in high school I got into weight lifting. Weight lifting quickly became my absolute favorite thing to do and it was what I would look forward to while I was sitting in class. When I was 16 my dad passed away and the only thing that got me through it was the gym. It was and still is my therapy. As I continued lifting, I started to learn more about proper technique and nutrition which brought my physique to the next level. From there I got my personal training certification because I wanted to help others achieve their goals the way I did!

All those times I was told no or I got knocked down, I got right back up and that has always been my motivation. Another thing that inspired me while I was laying in the hospital sad as fuck, was watching Rich Piana and David Goggins videos. Those 2 gave me drive that I never experienced before and I has every intention on using it. That paired with my inability to take no for an answer, gave me all the inspiration I needed to change my life.

It's not really motivation for me, it's dedication. Dedication to be the best version of myself possible, even against all odds. To me, it makes no sense to build the body and not one's mind, so as a daily discipline along with working out, I also practice self development because that's what I feel "Self Made" means.
Rebuilding myself from the ground up into the badass new and improved version of myself, is why I'm a 5%ER.

After graduating high school, I decided to join the United States Army and serve my country as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne, where I served as an Infantry Scout/Recon. After serving honorably, I then decided to continue serving, but this time, my community as a police officer. Throughout my 19 year career, I served in numerous units/assignments, and in 2008, earned my SWAT certification where 25 people started, and only three graduated, myself included.

I am also a personal trainer and avid tactician who strongly believes in being the best I can be for my clients and the public/community in which I serve.

Being part of the 5 Percent Nutrition family as an athlete is an honor and extremely humbling, especially knowing what it stands for. Being a 5%ER truly means a lot to me.

My passion for fitness grew into a addiction for leveling up. The beauty of fitness is you can always be better and do better. It doesn’t get easier, you get better. My desire is to be able to help people so when they look in the mirror, they love what they see, whatever that looks like for them. Everyone is different but it’s in our uniqueness that we find our strengths. No one gets to decide what cards they get dealt in life; the only decision you have is how you play your hand. Be the best version of yourself every day.

When I was 22, I was diagnosed with cancer. This was after I had already competed in 2 bodybuilding competitions and the entire time I was going through my chemo, radiation and surgeries, all I could think about was getting back on stage. 11 months after a surgery that was close to a leg amputation, I stepped back on stage and haven’t looked back since. After going through what I did, everything became easy and I told myself that I would do literally whatever it takes to get my pro card as a bodybuilder.

 

AL GREEN

I have been training for 24 years and it was all out of making myself and my parents proud. Fitness allowed for me as an Athlete, to improve and make sure my parents didn’t have to pay for my education. Fitness for me has opened doors that would never have been opened without it. I live by a saying: “Quiet knowledge is dead knowledge” and to me that means if you don’t share what you know, it’s basically dead.

My passion for fitness began in 2015 when I realized I wasn’t in good enough condition to achieve my goals of being in law enforcement. After adopting Rich Piana’s 5% Mentality by doing Whatever It Takes, I was quickly able to transform my body and my life through fitness and I have ever since been deeply involved in the fitness industry and still train 6 times a week to this day.
