Like most people, Randall grew up in sports playing competitively. As he aged, life got a hold of him and his focus became his kids as a single father. During that time period, he gained about 100 pounds. In 2014, his passion for health and fitness was rekindled when his youngest son left off for college and he was left to focus back on himself, but ended up weighing in at 318 pounds as a pre-diabetic, finding himself following his father's footsteps as a stage 2 diabetic. Randall realized it was time to make a lifestyle change, so he joined a gym. That gym just so happened to be Powerhouse, which is now World Gym Corporation. While changing his lifestyle habits, he was able to lose 101 pounds in 9 months while at this facility. His loyalty has now become helping members change their lives as he did here at his home gym, World Gym Oxnard.
