Jose was born in Habersham and grew up in Tiger, Ga. The seeds of Jose’s journey into fitness as a career were planted early in life. Jose was an overweight child from kindergarten to middle school until he decided he wanted to change. This lifestyle commitment not only allowed him to move and feel better but also allowed his self-confidence to increase. Seeing the positives from these changes led him to decide to help others see the same benefits. Jose is available for private training in our Gainesville studio, as well as for myofascial sessions.
