Biography

Beginning Bodybuilding

From Texas, USA, Christian Guzman was born on the 20th of February 1993. When he was growing up in middle school and high school, he didn’t play many sports.

However, while he was in high school, he met a group of friends who would join together every week and train in a strength and conditioning camp. It was at this point that Christian fell in love with fitness, more specifically, weight lifting.

Always being known as the “skinny kid who played guitar,” Christian soon changed from strength training to muscle building. Each day after high school, he set about creating the best physique possible.

Documenting His Journey

During his journey into fitness, he searched online for other bodybuilders for inspiration, in the hope he’d learn how to create a “god-like” physique of his own.

After finding popular fitness models such as Matt Ogus, and Scott Herman, he learned from their tips and tricks, and took his progress step-by-step.

In only a short space of time, Christian’s body started to change. He then ordered himself a video camera, with plans to document his journey.

Internet Success

When he became more confident, and happy with his physique, Christian started posting videos online on his own training and nutrition tips. He soon picked up a lot of attention for his “real-life”  fitness videos and fitness related tips. The number of followers continued to grow, as did his expertise in the gym.

After becoming one of the most popular models of inspiration online, he set his sight further, in the hope to help other people improve their physiques.

Christian said; “I wanted to hold weekly training classes to train younger kids—middle schoolers, high schoolers, whoever, — and pretty much take them through workouts. My goal was to open up a small facility and have my own space, but things just sort of got amplified.” 

Entrepreneur

Since the beginning of Christian’s journey, he’s built a highly successful personal training business, created a clothing line, and become an internet star.

Christian shows no signs of slowing down. His clients, and fans, all look to him for inspiration. Not only to create an awesome physique, but also to chase their own dreams of becoming successful in life, just like Christian.

As Christian said; “I think the biggest step is taking that first step. What if I hadn’t ordered that HandyCam? Ordering that camera literally changed my life, and a similar thing can happen to anyone else with whatever passion.” – Christian Guzman

Christian is one of the more natural looking bodybuilders I’ve come across. He’s not pumped full of steroids, but it’s hard to know, as so many athletes say they are not. I may be naive, but I think he’s natural.
