"Getting those results you want takes time," says Gabriel Valantino. The 5'9", 185 lbs., 21 year old, lifetime natural has been training since he was 15 years old. "When I first started working out, I didn’t see any progress until a year later most of it was do to me having no clue how to properly workout while ego lifting of course. It took time for me to learn from my mistakes and to keep trying different things until I started getting the results I wanted."

"I noticed people start working out with tons of motivation then tend to fall off when they aren’t getting results fast enough. Remember this is marathon not a sprint lift smart and be patient."

Gabriel will compete for the first time at Musclemania® Universe next season.
