“It all started in quarantine when I started uploading training videos to my social networks. People started asking me for more, they started asking me to help them and as I think it is beneficial for everyone because the sport is always good because I started with a training account only. Somehow I have to take off this ‘soccer suit, I miss it a lot,” the Equatorial Guinean explained to MD.
And it is that his account is growing every day and he already has people with great results: “The truth is that he began to receive many messages that they would like to train with me. That impressed me a lot and I noticed how motivated they are when I answer them. I love helping people, and I think that after so many years working day-to-day with physical trainers, I can give them something. ”
A service that is also helping some players who play in amateur categories stay in shape. It is a luxury for them to be able to follow their advice. “Even other soccer players who have been my teammates follow the exercises. So remember one in Torrevieja, several in Equatorial Guinea or even from Argentina. I am happy because not everyone has the option that a physical trainer can design training routines for him as it happens in First Division or in big clubs ”.
