Right after 061 opened a scawny kid walked in the door and told me he wanted to get stronger. Not just stronger though, he wanted to get really good at olympic lifting. He showed me a video of himself lifting (hopefully it was not archived and is forever gone). Thats not to say it was bad…but….it was bad. As he began the journey at 061 he wanted to learn as much as he could and was a sponge. Eventually, people started catching on and wanted to get information from him as well. At that point I knew Miguel would be an amazing coach. 2 years later he is still learning, bettering himself, and becoming someone I call a good friend. Since day one the transformation as a lifter and person has been amazing to witness first hand. He always comes in with a smile on his face and a big heart. That scrawny kid is growing up and a lot of us have been able to witness some amazing things from Miguel. The next steps for him are only going to be more enjoyable to witness. I am so happy for the things he has done, is doing, and will do in his future.
Chels and I are sad and happy to inform you that Miguel will be stepping back as a coach to become a full time member at 061. We are sad to see him step down from coaching as we know how big a part he has been in 061’s life, your lives, and our lives as coaches and friends. We are happy that after graduating college he will be pursuing new opportunities and looking to find his “next steps”. We are excited to follow along, help him in anyway possible, and see what he will accomplish in the future. His last day coaching will be this Friday, that is not to say he will not guest coach in 061’s future.
We cannot thank him enough for all he has done for our business and hope you can all give him a big Thank You as well when you see him around 061. He came to 061 as a kid looking for fitness and became a focal point in our business. He now leaves as a College Grad and a Bigger Kid with a Man Bun. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE MIGUEL!
