Author: J.J.Valdivia

My name is J.J. Valdivia. I've worked in the fitness industry for almost a decade, helping others achieve their goals and dominate in all aspects of life. I started writing on the internet almost 3 years ago in order to reach out to as many people as possible and spread my personal philosophies on training, nutrition, and life. Along with health and fitness, I have many other passions and interests: I enjoy listening to music, watching films, and reading as many books as I possibly can in my free time. I believe that learning is a life long endeavor, and I strive to better myself on a daily basis in order to grow as a human being and spread positivity, love, and knowledge throughout the world. I don't believe that anyone should be limited to doing any one thing; and I encourage others to explore their creativity and unique genius in as many mediums as possible. Some of my personal heroes include: Leonardo Da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Barack Obama, Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Bruce Lee, Jackie Robinson, Michael Jordan, Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, Steve Jobs, Samuel Johnson, Martin Luther King Jr., Viktor Frankl, Mahatma Gandhi, Jesus of Nazareth, Sydney Portier, Charles Darwin, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Nelson Mandela.
