Sergio Maurico Vargas – Personal Trainer

My name is Sergio Mauricio and I am a personal trainer and business owner. I have been in the fitness world for 10 years now. My fitness journey began when I was 23 years old and weighted 264lbs . For my age and height , that is considered obesity and borderline diabetic . You ask me how I got to this point in my life? My answer is , I did not care . I did not care that I was overweight and I did not care what people thought of me . I suffered from mild depression and I just ate my feelings away as most of us can relate . Originally my plan  was to become an EMT . I went to school for it and fell in love with helping people . Yet that was not my calling . After finishing my course , I came home only to gain more weight and feel more bad about myself because of it and instead of doing something beneficial I just kept eating . Wasn’t until I started feeling the effects of my weight that it became my wake up call . I was suffering from shortness of breath, chest pain and low to none confidence level . I decided to take a step forward and began going to the YMCA . Everyday I would walk 5 miles to the gym only to use the treadmill because I had no knowledge of weight training . Soon after, I began to lose weight and started to feel good about myself . Later I was introduced to an LA Boxing gym by a trainer whom I will always be grateful for taking the time to show me the ropes into weight training. At that facility is where my passion for personal training began. I went from being a member to truly embracing the calling of helping others as I was helped . Now 10 years later and 100 lbs less , I am proud to call myself a Personal trainer and business owner . There is unlimited potential in this field and the most rewarding thing about it all is that I get to change lives for the better . I specialize in martial arts such as boxing , kickboxing and Muay Thai. Also , muscle building , fat loss and athletic conditioning . A strong champion mindset is how I live my life and my mission is to help everyone around me and those who I have yet to meet to become the best version of themselves !
