JC BATRES, CSCS, PN1.

Owner/ Head Coach.

JC has been working as a personal trainer and coach for over 12 years. Growing up, he was constantly bullied and made fun of for being skinny and weak. Initially, he began weight training seriously after high school with the goal of gaining size, strength and confidence in himself. Eventually, he fell in love with the results gained from strength training and began competing in both olympic weightlifting and powerlifting. JC has dreamed of owning his own gym since his youth and now focuses primarily on powerlifting, strength training and helping his clients get as fit and as strong as possible. JC does both in person 1 on 1 training as well as remote coaching and has a flexible schedule. He is always taking on new clients. Follow him on instagram. @ChapinStrength

GUSTAVO GONZALEZ

Owner/ Personal Trainer

Gustavo was always self conscious of his appearance in his early life.   Initially, his lack of confidence motivated him to begin his fitness journey.  His journey was riddled with many obstacles; mainly himself and his desire for perfection. Feeling desperate and lacking direction, Gustavo decided to hire a coach to help him on his path.  His journey initially was fueled by the desire to improve his outward appearance. Shortly after, this desire blossomed into a passion for the sport of olympic weightlifting. Weightlifting provided Gustavo with an immense sense of personal satisfaction and inspired him to share that love with others. Gustavo now focuses on training clients in powerlifting, strength training & functional fitness. He is always taking on personal training clients and can be contacted via our contact page.

TONY GONZALEZ

Personal Trainer

Tony has been an athlete his entire life. Despite being a smaller than his peers, he managed to be a star player on the varsity baseball team at Venice High School and rose to the top. Struggling to gain weight and looking to put some more power behind his swing, he joined a gym. Shortly after, he fell in love with the sport of Powerlifting. Lifting weights, he was quickly able to gain a tremendous amount of muscle and power which he desperately needed to hit the home runs he always fell short of. Immediately after his baseball career came to an end, he started competing in Powerlifting and hasn’t looked back. Tony was always passionate about athletics, so he decided to pursue a career as a personal trainer. Tony finds joy in bringing his clients results and helping them achieve their goals. Tony offers 1 on 1 training as well as remote coaching for his clients. He is always open to taking on new clients, you can contact him on Instagram @TonyThePowerTiger28 or on Fuerza Gyms contact page.
