Jose Fuentes began his journey teaching kids Northern Style kung fu in Mexico City at the young age of 10; he already had a black belt. His personal training career took off at the age of 16 at a local gym in Veracruz, Mexico. He recalls, “During the years that I worked at several small health clubs, I instructed members on how to use the equipment. As my career progressed, I moved on to the larger health clubs/gyms. As an incentive, I conducted various contests for members. One of the contests consisted of monitoring and measuring the members’ progress during specific exercise routines (bench press, squats, push- ups, etc.). The prize was a free month of personal training. This prize was quite impressive since most people in Mexico could not afford a personal trainer. As a personal trainer, I found it most gratifying to see my clients do so well”.
