I was always an athlete growing up. As some of us used fitness as a copping mechanism, I used sports but because of an injury I couldn’t play sports anymore. So I found a passion in fitness like no other.

Meet JR GUZMAN
"Heyy, I’m Jr! I’m from Colorado. Born and raised there. A small town kid with big dreams. Since I could remember, my dream was to inspire. I looked up to Kobe Bryant growing up, and absolutely loved how he made me feel, wanted. That I absolutely have a purpose in this life. God put me in a position where I could do just that. I wanna be able to make a change not only in the fitness community but in this world and everyday we taking a step towards that. I’m blessed to be where I’m at, but I’m nowhere near where I wanna be and I’d love for you to be part of the journey!"
