I want to lift up and highly recommend my contest prep athlete coach Chris San Juan of Scooby Prep. This is my testimony. Chris' both friendly and business side was a big part of my bodybuilding success. I went with Chris because he was a local standout in the NPC placing top 5 in the nation x7 times in his respected bodybuilding weight class. I was motivated by the fact that I can see him in person as opposed to emailing pics and we both competed in the same Welterweight class. Not only did we train a few times he showed me unique angles and also recommended excercise, and posing to finally achieve that elusive glute- ham tie in I could never do on my own. I recieved my best looks of condition and fullness in my 15 years of competitive bodybuilding. He took over my supplementation, cardiovascular programs and Nutrition. I did 4 shows under his tutelage. I approched Chris first in 2012 when i was prepping on my own, frustrated and spinning my wheels at 7 wks out looking like I was 17 weeks out. He instantaneously put me in a ketogenic program for a few wks with difficult timed cardio sessions, until my body seemed on track. His methodology seemed to improve my physique, adding tweeks and changes every few days, and allowed us to learn what things worked for me in a short time. After being so behind I was proud to land in the highly competitive John Lindsay Productions 2012 NPC Excalibur 1st call out! placing 3rd in the Welterweight division behind Honduras Standout Marvin Echeveria and the current 1st place Mr Olympia Classic physique champion Breon Ansley!! I continued with Chris and also placed 2nd at the competitive 2014 NPC Legends Classic in Las Vegas and later 7th at the 2014 NPC jr Nationals in the welterweight division. With Chris' expertise he broke down the scientific part of my program and gave me the mental toughness to be successful, the methodical reasoning, and all the tools to have the potential to place top 10 and even top 5 in the Nation. I was always complimented on my conditioning and I wouldn't have achieved it with out Chris. My prep was so unique that my programs changed and he was always quick to respond to my messages, and felt like he wanted the best of me with great communication and support. Chris was able to increase my food intake and showed me how to rebound from shows, making prep a enjoyable process. I even landed a big Company Sponsorship!
