This is a story about determination and relentless pursuit... OF HAPPINESS.☺️ “En Route to Miami Swim Week” Video 1 is now up on my YouTube Channel. Link on my IG story and in my bio, thank you for watching! @frankiethedirector@knightinnovations@raphyvelazquez -------------------- Being able to help a woman going through growth and opposition is great! Carmen is a boss who is handling her business and learning by doing. It’s helped me as well. To be on her side through it all is why I started my path in the health and wellness industry.
Helping is what I love to do, and I’m excited for you all to watch Carmen Carrera grow and rise to kick ass at last weeks @miamiswimweekend. Enjoy!!
The song in the second video is by @itspearlgates , titled “Perfect Timing”, off of his most recent album “Live from the first”. Show love and check it out!
Miami Swim Weekend was a hell of an event for me.
First and foremost, as a strength and condiioning coach, i came in focused to make sure that @carmen_carrera was eating right, staying hydrated, working out and had enough energy to kill all her events.
Everything else that came after that was a gift to me, like being able to walk the runway!
Thank you @noelvalentine for putting me on and getting me on the runway. It was a ”right place at the right time” type of moment and i couldnt have been happier to have been upstairs looking for someone and you asking me if i was changed and ready to go 😂😂 It was my first runway and i was out here putting a tube around a lovley lady lol 😂 #livinginthemoment
I made a lot of new connections and am happy to say that theres only more work to do! Theres was great energy in the whole venue!! Thank you @miamiswimweekend, @thepinkandpetite@artistsandarchitects & @erikrosetefor the opportunity to be apart of such a great event! Great production😎
I walked for @saks sporting two outfits. One from @orlebarbrown and the other from @vilebrequin. Both amazing brands, check them out!
Saturday, I walked into the buidling with the intention to focus on Carmens health and fitness. After that, I set my intention on providing value to the people around me. Whether that meant giving fitness advice, talking about the vela hip circle band or just enjoying the moment, I stayed positive the whole time!
Opportunities came to me that night that I could not dream of. I say that to say this. We need to get out of our heads, do more good deeds and say yes to more opportunities. 📸: @knightinnovations
Enjoy your humpday everyone!
Keep in mind that we never know anyones demons or anyones trials and tribulations. Stay optimismic, work your ass off and work towards a better future. All we got is right now. Seize the moments. Enjoy the views while you ride.
📸 cred: to the creative man @knightinnovations
We have some heat coming to you!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥 Here’s a trailer to the #countdown4swim project that @carmen_carrera and I are working on!
Thank you @equinox#Paramus for allowing us to start this project! Let’s keep working on greatness.
We’ve been training hard with both our busy schedules to prep for Miami Swim week.
This was a whole new process for me to be apart of a project like this.

Barcelona, Spain 🇪🇸 This marks the last set of photos of some of my memories overseas!
Barcelona! Hopefully this will be where I retire and you’ll see me unwinding chillen on a boat 😎⛵️ lol
Barcelona had a lot of intense moments between friends. I grew in Barcelona with my friends by becoming a better communicator, dealing with tough conversations that ultimately ended bringing people together.
We tend to fear tough conversations but we shouldn’t. Tough conversations are important in cultivating and strengthening one’s relationships with others. Go at it with no ego and hope for the best possible outcome.
disfruta las fotos!!
Happy Mother’s Day to the woman who’s helped guide me to be the man I am today. Esperanza, my hope!❤️ The woman who has my heart and who I work towards a better future for.
I hope all mothers had a great day doing whatever they enjoy and being with their loved ones.
Enjoy your Sunday night everyone!
LISBOA! Lisbon was a beautiful place where we met great people. It was filled with lovely food, awesome artwork and great people. Portugal was awesome because we got to learn about the country from locals, share memories with new friends and coexist with others.
One experience that really resonated with me was looking at the monument to the discoveries in Belém. What I love about this is that you see that every person in the monument is working on something different (their own craft), yet they are all headed onward and upward.
I definitely am working on surrounding myself around like minded people focusing on growth, creating quality content and working towards a better future. That monument depicts my thoughts perfectly.
Enjoy the pictures of my time in Portland!
Madrid, Spain 🇪🇸 I want to share some of my experiences in each place that I went to during my vacation. Each location has a special place in my heart and hopefully I can pass something down that can be beneficial to anyone reading this.
In Madrid, I was able to fully unwind after a long stint of a lot of work and preparation for things to come. I’m thankful for my friends and being able to enjoy those moments without stressing the future at all while being overseas. We all need to unplug.
We all stress over the future but we need to believe that it’ll work out in the end. Shit, I know I stress and overthink what I do often but I’m working towards greatness for myself and others. With that in mind, putting work in and caring about people, I know my dreams will be seen through.
It all starts with love. Loving ourselves, our family, friends and even strangers will help with us being able to cope with realities in life. Plus we get to grow with the ones we love. Success become more enjoyable this way. You get to look around 👀 and win with those you came up with. How beautiful is that! I believe that the first step is leading by example for big dreams like this. It’s not easy but it’s attainable.
Comment below ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ and start a conversation about projects that you’re working on. Hopefully someone reading my posts can comment and may be able to help or guide in some way. Let’s work towards a new age of growth!
Im finally back to the real world after my long vacation. Im excited to get back to working on training my clients, working on my fitness business (PRODUCT COMING SOON!), and a couple of other projects! The road ahead isnt easy, i will make mistakes along the way. I want to show and insprie you all to dive into your work. It wont be perfect and we will mess up but thats the beauty in working on ones craft.
Vacation has gotten my head back in the right headspace to handle all the trials and tribulations to come!
Im hungrier, now more than ever and hoping to inspire others and putting the work in to make my dreams come true!👌🏾💪🏾
A couple of my personalities!!
😄🤔🤪 thank you @bernadetmaite for telling me to post the last picture 😊❤️ We are nearing the end of the trip and although ive been slacking on putting content out and my own personal fitness (im eating a ton, walking a lot, little training and drinking a bit tbh),im connecting with the people around me and enjoying the moments instead of grinding so much. Im getting in my bag.
People that know me, know that i love the work BUT investing into people and caring for others are a couple of important aspects that we need focus on to work on a better future.
We have only a finite amount of energy to invest in a day, invest wisely. 🧐
Its cool to know that we met over me having to borrow a pencil from @adammenner during our anatomy class taught by @coachjoestrong. Adam is a badass in the game of strength and conditioning and is getting ready to release some awesome content for the basketball world. We are working on some cool things too for the health and wellness work. Thanks @varsityhouse for letting us shoot at the location 📸Phot cred: @knightinnovations working with this company has been great and hes given me tips on taking shots myself!!
