I AM PROUD TO BE THE FIRST PROFESSIONAL BODYBUILDER FROM MEXICO EVER!
When I was 17 years old I was black belt in Tae Kwon Do and I was looking for a gym to improve my strength in kicks. Then the trainer told me I had good genetics; 3 months later I was competing and I got a 2nd place in rookies. Every year I was gaining more and more weight what was no good for Tae Kwon Do tournaments so I decided to be a Bodybuilder for the rest of my life.
In 2003 I won the overall Mr Mexico Title. After competing and winning at the North American Championships 2008 in Cleveland, Ohio I turned IFBB Pro the same year. I then moved to Venice, California to train with my mentor Charles Glass in Golds Gym Venice where I still train and work.
My nickname is The Pitbull proudly given by Rich Piana who called me like that in 2014 when I signed my first contact with 5%Nutrition, saying that Pitbull fits perfectly because my height, musculature and Loyalty.
Bodybuilding has given me all what I have including my residency in the USA. I love giving back, sharing with people about nutrition, proper training and supplementation. I give back by certifying trainers for PROPTA, as a Personal Trainer in Golds Gym Venice and doing informative videos and posts in my social media.
