I took my passion for wrestling and wrestled at the Junior College level where I became an All American at the California State Championships, placing 8th for the Santa Rosa Bear Cubs. With lots of ups and downs, I never stopped working hard and believed in every second of work that I put in to make me a better man.
In 1997, I took over the High School wrestling program at my Alma Mater, Napa High School, where I am still currently the head wrestling coach. I continue to pass along my work ethic with every athlete that I train. Never a day went by that I wasn’t working out myself or training people and sharing my secrets to fitness, which is how I started my personal business in my garage. After running it for a few years, I decided to grow and open up Franco Fitness, which is now on its third year of business and going strong. The community that supports me is just another blessing that I have and enjoy every day.
I love working with people and seeing them achieve their goals. I am always continuing to pursue more knowledge of how amazing the human body is and how capable it can be to achieve anything you push it to do with the right mental attitude. I currently hold certifications in Kettlebells, CrossFit, Crossfit Football, CrossFit Gymnastics, Krav Maga, CrossFit Mobility, and I have 20 years of experience as a Head Wrestling Coach with a lifetime of hands on, hard training and do-work attitude.
Health and fitness is my life, and I’m blessed to have the ability to play in my gym every day. My mantra is: Never a day of rest, enjoy every second that I train, and share my passion to train hard with my Franco Fitness Family. Never Quit Attitude!
