In 2010 I fell into a dark space, I turned to educate myself about the mind. All directions pointed to health and fitness and getting back to fitness changed my life. I went from 187Lbs to 149Lbs and then I moved to Vancouver. The mountains, ocean water and not needing to drive. Lead to me purchasing a bike and riding my bike all over Vancouver and to local YMCA introducing myself to yoga. At that point I knew I wanted to be involved in health and fitness for the rest of my life, I wanted to impact masses and show them anything is possible.
While I was studying in University for International Relations I reached my highest weight and generally unhealthy habits. After I lost weight, over 25lbs, with Herbalife nutrition products I started my business-nutrition and helping clients lose weight and improve their heath became my passion. But it was always a dream to have both fitness and nutrition in one place under one roof. As someone who struggled with weight, I know that if we work out and eat correctly, and supplement our diet we will get to our results sooner.
I grew up in a home where all the boys played sports and stayed active so I quickly got into the habit of learning how to stay active and fit by just watching my older cousins and friends. I first got into basketball by the age of 13 years old and continued to play in high school I later found love for the sport of football in my last couple of years in high school. After I graduated high school I realized I wasn’t too confident in my appearance and I wanted to change the way I looked and the way I felt about myself so I started asking questions about the gym. I started working out at the age of 19. First It was kettlebell workouts that helped me ease into lifting weights then working out became a habit and then later became my whole life.
After seeing drastic changes in my appearance and overall self-confidence I wanted to take it to the next level so I found myself a coach to prep me for my first ever men’s physique competition. I was 2 months out I cut down from 178lb to 163lb and I was at 9% body fat, unfortunately, I hurt my back and had to back out. After my injury, I decided to devote my time and all my energy to changing other people’s lives in the fitness world and that’s what led me to join Herbalife Nutrition.
My name is Gabriel Burlacu and I have been playing Beach Volleyball professionally for the past four years. I started playing indoor volleyball when I was 16, and soon after found my love
of the beach. Playing on tour for Team Canada has been an amazing experience, which has challenged me in more ways than I could have imagined both physically and mentally. The ways in which I train and fuel my body during, and leading up to competition are the foundation of the results that I can achieve internationally. I feel so privileged to get to represent Canada, and I am very grateful for the role that Herbalife plays in my performance.
My name is Daniel Gracia, Founder of The Force Academy. I am a 26 year old & I currently reside in Ottawa, Ontario. I am a Certified Personal Trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I also hold a Level 1 Precision Nutrition certification. I’ve played sports my entire life – soccer football & basketball – year round up until high school, where I decided to put all my efforts into basketball. My love for fitness is a by product of my love for the game of basketball. Once my collegiate basketball career was over, I turned my attention to fitness full-time. After 10 plus years of working out and smashing my own goals, my focus has shifted to the public. I just love to help others reach their fitness goals, make them feel more confident and ultimately make them happier.
Sports and nutrition have always been apart of my life. I danced competitively since the age of 5, trained gymnastics and took part in a variety of different sports from volleyball to track and field. I have been weightlifting since I was 18. My training backgrounds of expertise include strength and conditioning, weight loss programming, and bodybuilding. My philosophy focuses on continual lifelong evolving, growing and learning as I work together with my clients by empowering them with the knowledge, skills, resources, guidance and support to help them achieve their goals and live a healthy life.
