Gabe has always been passionate about sports, fitness and an overall balanced lifestyle. His mother, a dietitian who focuses on a holistic approach to food and medicine, instilled lifelong lessons upon him at a young age to live a healthy balanced life. Gabe was a star athlete in high school, making it to the Nationals quarterfinals in track and field despite having competed just one year. He was also a standout wide receiver on his football team, making the all-state team. Due to severe injuries that shackled him to a wheelchair for almost an entire year, he took some time off to recover and is now the starting wide receiver at Santa Monica College and also the team captain on the track and field team. He recently won the Santa Monica College athlete of the year award in track and field. He currently has a 3.5 GPA and hopes to transfer to UCLA next year and take his competition to the next level.
In addition to being a full time student athlete, Gabe spends a great deal of his time volunteering at the Midnight Mission, a homeless shelter on Skid Row. He spends every Christmas morning dressed as an elf, passing out presents to homeless children, in addition to serving food regularly on Tuesday evenings.
He loves seeing the progress of his clients’ minds and bodies through physical fitness. He believes that exercise and a healthy lifestyle are some of the greatest gifts to mankind because they are available to anyone and has remarkable benefits to any who’s willing to work for it. One of his favorite quotes is, “the dictionary is the only place in the world where success comes before work.”
