Here is a little background story. I have always struggled with nutrition. This time not with weight loss, but putting on weight. I realized that health has always been important but also feeling comfortable with myself when I looked in the mirror. I wanted to feel like a million dollars every single day. So after I left my full time job I decided to start Vive Nutrition as an effort to help you accomplish exactly that. This is a place where you can understand how to fuel your body for change, learn the secrets behind muscle growth, and most importantly deciphering the formula for long term results. Are you ready?

I grew up in Venezuela in small beach town on the east coast. Growing up I was not the most robust guy, in fact we had to line up in high school every morning before going to our classrooms and I was one of the first ones since I wasn’t too tall. So yeah short and small. Fast forward a few years and it was time for college. Originally, I wanted to go to Medical School hoping to help athletes get back on their feet after injuries, but when my dreams were crushed nutrition seemed like a viable option while I figured things out. I never looked back. My passion for nutrition and how to change my body in various ways for better health, a better physique, and overall a better wellbeing grew incredibly fast. I never looked back. For the past 10 years I have dedicated my life to understand the best methods to get the best out of my body, physically and mentally. Being a skinny guy most of my life, I wanted to grow muscle, I wanted to feel amazing and being able to perform my best in everything I did. This, along with my interest in sports, started a journey to help athletes.
Today, I can say I have been fortunate enough to have helped hundreds of people, including some of the most elite level athletes in the world, from NFL drafts, to MLB veterans improve their nutrition. I cracked the code on nutrition and muscle growth and now I help athletes and people like you get in the best shape. I know how hard it was for me to feel comfortable in my own body but I did something about it. want to help you do the same if you let me. Whether you are an athlete trying to be best in your sport or a someone just thirsty for change let’s get started in the pursuit of that massive transformation. Here are some ways I can help you:

I hold a bachelor’s degree is nutrition and dietetics from the University of Southern Indiana where I graduated with honors. After this I completed several internship rotations in the prestigious Texas Medical Center in hospitals like Ben Taub, Texas Children’s Hospital, and Memorial Hermann. It wasn’t until I started working with football athletes at the University of Houston where I became more passionate about helping athletes maximize their gains and performance.
I was a nutrition coach for world-class IMG Academy where I had the opportunity to work with hundreds of youth, collegiate, and professional athletes.
I wear many hats and currently serve as the Director of Nutrition for the Applied Science and Performance Institute (ASPI) in Tampa, FL where I oversees all nutrition operations for pro-athlete programs, and also online coaching platforms for well-known fitness celebrities.
