Q: What gym do you primarily train at?

A: “Well I have a lot of people who are my biggest motivators, for the longest time it has only been my parents because of all of the sacrifices they made for my brother, my sisters and myself.

My girlfriend, Arielle, and our twin boys, Austin & Adrian help keep me motivated and focused.”
