     Mr José was born in El Salvador during Civil War.  His father was killed in the war, so when Mr José was 15 years old, his uncle brought him to the U.S. to be safe.

 

     After finishing High School Mr José worked part time in his uncle's landscaping business while attending SF City College.   While in college he became very interested in exercise and sport nutrition.  To help his family back in El Salvador who were experiencing extreme financial hardship, Mr José worked as a Personal Trainer for Fitness USA and studied and worked as a Nutrition Consultant. 

 

     His work as a Youth Mentor for a Bay Area Christian Church and the YMCA has provided him with the skills to help boys become the best they can be regardless of their circumstances.
