Ecuadorian natural bodybuilder Martín Proaño says he started training when he was 18 years old because he did not like how he looked. The 5'8", 194 lbs., 25 year old explains, "After 8 months of training starting completely from 0, I had my first awesome fitness transformation!"

"Now, 7 years later, my goal is to be an athlete who brings a lot of knowledge to everyone who joins the gym. I want to help them step by step to meet their objectives and prevent them from making the mistakes that I originally made. It motivates me to be a good example to follow for all who love this sport of fitness."

Martin says he'll make his Musclemania® debut next season. "As an athlete, my goal will be to compete internationally and be the first Ecuadorian athlete to be known in world events."
