Other information
OCCUPATION
He works as a fitness coach and runs a gym in Nogales, Mexico. He also credits weightlifting for helping him to regain some mobility in his leg following his accident. "As I was the leader of the gym and a lot of people were relying on me, I couldn't disappoint them. As soon as I got out of the hospital in my wheelchair I started lifting light weights again, little by little, until it became a bigger challenge." (elimparcial.com, 06 Mar 2018)
