As a child, Blanco was often called “husky” and always picked last in kickball. He battled with his weight, a struggle that would follow him into adulthood. Fifteen years ago, weighing an impressive 280 pounds, Blanco found himself at a crossroads. In one direction was continued unhappiness and ill health. In the other was the hard road to fitness. After struggling through a series of false starts, including a diet named after a Miami beach and some questionable pharmaceutical remedies, he found CrossFit.
Since then, he has shed 100 pounds and is in the best shape of his life. Blanco is truly happy to share his experience and help other people along the road to transformation!
Blanco has a secret identity as an opera singer… for real! Never challenge him to a karaoke showdown!
