I don't think you could find a more genuine guy than Hector. If you've met him, you know what I mean. He's always smiling, no matter what he's doing, always willing to try something new, and always just a pleasure to coach and be around. I've only been working with him a short time on the fitness side of the gym, and more personally through the pandemic with his at home training, but he's been a 6Ser for years (2.5 to be exact!) predominantly with Hanks Powerlifting.
Hector's enthusiasm is contagious. He's humble as well. Hanks Powerlifting probably know him best, as he's a big lifter over there. When he started with them back in 2018, his back squat was 225lbs. Now he squats 470lbs, has a 351lbs bench press, and a 500lbs deadlift. Put him on the fitness side of the gym, and we're working on simple handstand shapes, getting more comfortable with body weight movements, and working cardiovascular endurance. While heavy lifting may be his wheelhouse, he's always open to these new challenges and takes them on with a smile.
I'd like to say that Hector is a staple in our 6S community, and I know other coaches would agree. It's athletes like him that make our space feel like home, welcoming, and an all around positive place to be. We can't wait to see Hector progress in his strength and fitness, and are so grateful to have people like him a part of our 6S Fam!
