NAME: Richard Forbes
CURRENT POSITION: Fitness Model/Trainer/Enthusiast
WHERE IS YOUR HOME TEAM: My home is LA
WHO DO YOU PLAY FOR NOW: I live in Southern California (LA and Orange County)
WHAT’S YOUR GAME PLAN: To become the most inspiring fitness and clothing model, sports therapist/physician, and own my own training facility where I can teach future athletes ways of healing and building, even through injuries, by understanding muscle and nerve connection. My overall goal is to inspire the world to believe in themselves and never give up on consistency, in order to achieve their goals and dreams.
WHAT’S YOUR STRATEGY TO ACHIEVE IT: I plan to model for any top clothing lines interested in my progress and story, and also preparing to compete in Men’s Physique at the Culver City Muscle Contest, in Southern California in July, to show my greatest comeback. After I achieve my placing and experience of competing I plan to write a novel about my journey, what it took to come back from my nerve injury, and how others can carry the same spirit through any life journey or obstacle in order to be successful and reach one’s dreams.
LIST 1 OR 2 ‘GOLD MEDAL’ MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE: I was accepted into California State University of Fullerton with a scholarship, and I was also scouted and signed as a fitness model at age 18 and a clothing model at 19, before I even competed for physique. But my biggest accomplishment was coming back from my sciatic nerve/disc injury.
WHO ARE YOUR CHAMPIONS: My Mom and pops. They’ve always been my fuel to do what I love and chase my dreams, and always will be. My family and all my supporters are my champions! Love fuels me to push harder.
IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT MAKES AN EVERYDAY CHAMPION: Determination, faith and consistency in pursuing dreams, and overall, believing.
WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO: Believe and you can achieve!
