The Weight Loss Industry Has Lied To You…
Meet Our Expert Coaches
I've been training for over a decade but when I was in my early 20s, I fell into a very dark patch and gained over 30lbs from my unhealthy lifestyle.
When I met Moises, I was inspired by his dedication & lifestyle and got back into the beat of it but I was struggling to stay motivated and consistent.
I had unhealthy habits that I carried into my relationship with Moises, and my insecurities were killing my sex life. I had no confidence, I couldn't really let loose and many times I avoided intimacy because I didn't like my body.
I felt like we were losing that spark and we were becoming more roommates than lovers…
This is why we created The Couple Challenge 4 years ago as a way for us to stay fitness motivated, find new ways to connect and deepen our bond in the process.
My mission on earth is to help other couples through The Couple Challenge to finally get in the best shape of their lives while nurturing their relationship with their partner.
I was born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico so I come from a conservative latino family with our core values being family and hard work. I am the youngest of my family so I've always been the "liberal" that challenged the status quo from my parents.
I was also the less fit of my family, my siblings were part of the national Gymnastic's team and were always very active, I on the other hand, preferred to play video games, eat junk food and hang out with my friends. I frequently visited the doctor and the hospital because my stomach would hurt or I would catch an infection from the food trucks.
By the time I was a teenager, I was overweight and became very conscious of my physical appearance. I got into my first diet and I lost over 30 pounds, however I also learned that a diet was not sustainable but I didn't know any better. I started to workout, I started to get into weight lifting with dreams of some day having a physique that I wouldn't be ashamed from taking my shirt off when going to la playa.
At 22 years old, I got diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It was the event that made realize that taking care of your body goes beyond physical appearance and made me want to inspire other people. However, being healthy and fit, it's a lifestyle and it was not easy to make it work as a couple.
When I met Delphine, I immediately fell in love with who she was and we shared the same core values. I knew she was into a healthy lifestyle, but when we met it was difficult to make it work into our relationship because of our very different fitness levels and routines.
I also felt like our relationship led me to being less healthy than I'd like but I didn't know how to encourage or motivate her without sounding condescending or nagging.
All I knew was that I wanted us to become the best version of ourselves inside & out and I wanted my life partner to become my fitness partner because our goal is to live a long and happy life in vitality.
That's how The Couple Challenge came to life 4 years ago.
