Robert Valenzuela, owner of Uptown Fitness Center. Del Paso Blvd., Sacramento.
The pandemic knocked me. I exhausted every penny of my savings to keep the place going. I'm in limbo. Not knowing if they're going to shut us down so I'm just uncertain and unsure every day. I've been struggling and not sure if I'm going to be able to keep my doors open. I try to give out my gift, which is through training, weight loss, powerlifting, bodybuilding, general weight training, or cardio. I am just grateful to be part of having a business that I love and I believe in that helps people. I can see people's lives being affected through good health and just the way they feel, and it's a definite blessing.
