It goes without saying but family is EVERYTHING. On a crisp November day in 1988 Gigi’s story began. Born into a large family that already had six girls…Gigi would make lucky number seven. Born & raised in San Antonio, TX Gigi grew up an all-around athlete competing in basketball, volleyball, softball, and plenty of other sports. Her athleticism started as a result of having horrible asthma and she quickly learned the benefits of professional assistance at an early age. “The doctors believed that training in athletics would help my lungs…turns out they were right!” Like many others Gigi had stopped playing sports after High School and for a while, wasn’t quite as active as she once was. “I had a little girl of my own later down the line at the age of 24 and wish I could say I was fit during my pregnancy, but I’d be lying. It wasn’t until my daughter was born that I decided to get myself back into shape.” With a lot of hard work, proper programming and the right attitude Gigi was back in the saddle. Gigi began her fitness career in group exercise & quickly excelled as a standout Group-Ex Instructor, leading others in Les Mills and Pound programs. “In 2017 the opportunity to grow into a Coach for World Gym came knocking at my door. It was a blessing in disguise that truly helped me realize my calling in life, serving others to better themselves through fitness. I have been blessed with the gift to help people; I try to share that gift with as many as possible. I’m grateful for the coaching platform that allows me to do what I absolutely love and believe in.” Gigi continues to make a positive fitness impact in her client’s lives as a Coach, Trainer and Instructor. “My heart is in World Gym Athletics & Fitness Truth has been life changing for me. My happiness comes from guiding others to find what I have found in this journey.” Welcome to the World Gym Family which goes without saying…family is EVERYTHING. #FitnessTruth Reach Gigi at: gigi.isaac@worldgym.com

Abelardo Martínez-López or "Abel" for short, is a competitive weightlifter at the university level. Originally from Brownsville, Texas aka (The Valley) Abel moved to San Antonio in 2015. "At around 18 years old I started to train with purpose in mind, that purpose was to improve 1 little thing each day, which has now turned into an ever evolving process. Over the course of time I've been able to compete both locally & nationally in the sport that I love! I want to help others who want to improve their wellness, both physically & mentally. One of the things that I most like about World Gym is how it brings people from all different athletic backgrounds together under 1 roof. We want our members to reach their fitness goals together and continue to rise above their personal best records!" Without doubt, Abel is a certified rock-star with the do it right mindset and driven by results. Here at the gym, he stands out as the resident authority in all things weightlifting...and then some! Possibly best known as the trainer that trains the trainers, it's priceless to see his clients reactions after the session ends. With technique that is second to none and a unrivaled belief that a challenge should be the norm, its easy to see why Abel is constantly in high demand. One BIG piece of advice for anyone training or thinking of training with Abel: BRING WATER, BRING A TOWEL & BRING YOUR A+ GAME...you're going to need it! #FITNESSTRUTH

In 2011 Isaac was at his heaviest personal weight, weighing in at a little over 360 lbs. "I was a 140+ lbs. over my steady weight of 220 lbs. and I never imagined I would have gotten to that point in my life. Being overweight and walking on prosthetics was not only detrimental to my health, but it took it's toll both physically and mentally." Shortly after seeing a picture of himself, Isaac made the decision to lose the weight not for aesthetics but rather for quality of life. With the help of his friend & the support of his family, Isaac was put on a strict diet & exercise plan. "For the next 8 months I was able to lose around 10 lbs. a month. The results spoke for themselves and the dedication pushed me, fueled me, DROVE me to continue down that path. I became a personal trainer by June of 2015 because of the transformation that I personally experienced, in losing 160+ lbs. and achieving 200lbs which was the healthiest I have ever been in my life. I have stuck to the program and stayed the course to this very day." In 2017 Isaac became part of the R.A.H. team/fam I accomplished the Spartan Sprint, became an instructor at R.A.H. and now training at WORLD GYM! "I cycled in the Marine Corp Marathon which was the first marathon I had ever done! Coming in 10th out of 43 for the handcycle group with a time of 2h19m!" Isaac recently became part of the RAMPAGE sled hockey team. With no end in sight, Isaac continues to exemplify the phrase, BE ABOUT vs. talk about getting the job done. #FitnessTruth Reach Isaac at: gilbert.alderete@worldgym.com
