Why is a Texan, who lives in Puerto Rico, competing in NJ

tx_pr_njWhy is a Texan, who lives in Puerto Rico, competing in NJ?

That is a great question, and here is the reason why, step by step:

Back in May, I was forced to change gyms because mine closed it’s doors temporarily.

When I found a new gym, they had a functional squat rack and bench press, where the other gym didn’t.

Excited that I could squat and press again, I thought, “Hey, I should train for a meet!”

Looking at my travel schedule, I had a business trip planned to Baltimore Aug 11-16, that was about 3 months away at the time.

So, I looked for USAPL meets in that vicinity that I could wrap into ONE trip to the states.

I found the NJ State Meet on 8/10.

Then started a ~13 week training cycle that I am wrapping up this week.

And I will compete for the first time in 6 years in 6 days in NJ!

Want to come cheer me on?

The meet is August 10, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Brunswick, NJ (Two Albany Street).

I compete from 9am to 1pm and awards follow. Let me know if you are coming!

  • “Fundamentals perfected equate to optimal performance.”

    It’s been very refreshing to be involved with your progress. Stay focussed and remember why we compete. Walking off the platform having accomplished your goals has more inherent value than a trophy or your name in a record book.

    (i will be happy to lose this bet…)

    • Bobby, I couldn’t have done it without your input, feedback, and coaching. I’ve tried coaching others, and it is very difficult. Though, I believe you are truly gifted as a coach, and I am so fortunate to have you in my corner. You are also a great friend.

      (And you aren’t getting out of this bet that easy!)
