“I AM LIKE A RACE HORSE. I SEE ONLY THE PATH IN FRONT OF ME.”
BIG BACK GRIPS USER PROFILE INTERVIEW: Ben Garcia
Big Back Grips has been working with Ben Garcia for almost 10 years, and this interview is long overdue. A personal trainer and competitive bodybuilder based in Los Angeles, Ben has represented us at Muscle Beach Venice, the Mr. Olympia Fit Expo, the LA Fit Expo, our many SoCal retail dealers and on the NPC competitive stage. He has never failed to make us proud.
We met Ben the way we met so many people we’ve worked with ̶ through social media. He was familiar with Big Back Grips through his Las Vegas gym when he lived there. We found out we not had only a lot of mutual digital friends on social media, but a lot of real-world analog friends in common too. Between his very busy personal training schedule and his intense contest prep, it’s sometimes difficult to find time. But at the time of this interview, we are unfortunately in the middle of the corona-virus lockdown. So, over an incredibly safe social distance, we found some time to talk.
