Meet Yorddy

Training philosophy

To me, training Is cultivating the self-belief to be able to become a better version of yourself. I believe that when you train your mind to overcome your physical challenges and doubts; you can attain any physical goal.


Who I Am

My name is Yorddy Velez. I am just a man who’s been through many hardships and made the decision to use my past experiences to help other people.  My childhood experiences molded me to be the trainer that I am today. Giving me a more in-depth sense of empathy and understanding that helps me guide my clients to success.


Not only has working-out helped me build self-confidence and a feeling of self-worth, but also gave me the strength I longed for. I used to believe that I was a victim, but as I got older I realized that what I thought were my biggest weaknesses are actually my greatest strengths. Training has built me up both mentally and physically; getting me through the toughest of times. (ex., everything from a broken heart to a broken bone, dealing from epilepsy, car accidents, child abuse, thoughts of suicide, and even brain surgery)


My Message

Realizing your current circumstance is the first step to become successful in any field.


“Always be the first rate version of yourself - Instead of the second rate version of somebody else.”
