“Outwork me.” This is the quote of our guest and we would be surprised if you could. He had severe spinal stenosis that led to staff infection and had to have back surgery to fix it all. He came back. Slow at first but all he wanted to do was move. He wanted to run at all times and it continues today. This elite obstacle racer is a first generation Mexican-American who spent his childhood playing video games. He is spreading his energy and insight to inspire others to get out there and challenge themselves to be great. Our guest is a passionate, young athlete and you’ll want to go move after listening to his story on this episode of Athlete On Fire![/bgsection]

“It’s gonna be okay dude.”
