Gerardo was diagnosed with an idiopathic cardiomyopathy in 2005. It was concluded to be an unknown infection. He continued to train to the best of his ability, whether it was walking a few miles a day, or practicing short intervals of functional training. “I watched so many others in my position give up on their careers, give up on all physical activity, and just sit themselves down in wheelchairs. Having a heart condition is not as forgiving as propaganda makes it out to be. Without an exceptional support group, the right guidance, and moderate physical activity, cardiac patients can easily lose the will power to live!” Gerardo explains.
In 2009, Gerardo received a heart transplant. After being bed-bound for three months in an induced coma, Gerardo lost over 80lbs of muscle mass – nearly half his weight, and needed to rebuild even the most common muscular functions from walking, to sitting upright in a chair.
But it didn’t take Gerardo long to get back to work. Only six months after his transplant surgery, Gerardo was back in the gym spreading inspirational words to all his clients about the significance of taking care of this one body and life that we have. This is how BODYSHOCK was created!
When COVID-19 spread across the United States in 2019, Gerardo was immediately spot lighted once again as an immo-compromised heart transplant recipient. For over 10 years Gerardo had been cautious with germs, but now he needed to adapt his services not only for his own personal safety, but for the safety of his participants as well. Gerardo was one of the first fitness professionals to offer outdoor, and open-air locations with closed group reservations. His protocols held up with ZERO reported cases of community spread, and were taken on by many other local fitness locations in the following months.
Being outdoors made Gerardo quickly realized that just like our body, our earth needs some deep rooted TLC! We can no longer leave it up to the scientists and the engineers of the world to fix. We each need to do our part. In turn, BODYSHOCK is now taking on a holistic look at our carbon footprint, as well as our commitment to getting outside whenever possible! To remind ourselves of just how important our impact is on this One life. One Body. And One Earth.
ONE LIFE. ONE BODY. ONE EARTH.
