Male transformation - Christian Peña1/20/21
Congratulations to our 2020 Fall 8 Week #1uptransformationchallenge Male 2nd place $6,000 cash prize winner Christian Peña (FB/christian.pena1)
This is his story
“I would like to thank 1Up Nutrition for challenging and helping me to discover that there are no limits when you set goals. One reason why I decided to join the challenge was because I wanted to set the example for my son, daughter and other people that everything is possible even when you find obstacles along the journey. Also, I wanted to demonstrate that age is only a number in your head, but discipline and dedication is what truly counts. Even though I had many goals, my main goal during this challenge was to inspire others by showing them a transformation of myself with a strict diet, changing my lifestyle, following a workout schedule, and having fun while I was participating in this contest.
During the 1Up Transformation challenge Journey, I felt very motivated because I was able to see how my body was transforming with my hard work and dedication. This would have never been possible without the great support of my wife, family and friends who were always there for me. However, I encountered some obstacles such as my job schedule, taking care of my children and using the gym during this pandemic. I overcame to these challenges by implementing my own work out space in my small two bedroom apartment and utilizing parks to run and meditate. I learned to organize my time better, eat healthy, discipline myself, and choose the right supplements from 1UP nutrition. “Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.” John Wooden. #If I was able to do it, you can do it.”
