HOW FELIPE USES FITNESS TO TURN HER STRUGGLES INTO STRENGTH

"I was a homeless Veteran and by the time I got off the streets in 2011, I was completely depressed. I got out of shape and it affected my liver and other vital organs to the point that they said I would need some serious help if I didn't change my state of mind. As my friends that I went to war with in Iraq started doing just as bad, some even taking their own lives, I got back into the only place I still loved, the gym. I haven't looked back and I always tell myself to train with pain, to never forget how far I came on my own, through my own mental and physical transformation."

FUN FACT

I'm a massive online gamer, and have been roleplaying and about that "geek life" since the 90's. You can find me online for a game anytime. I also collect POP figures as a hobby.
