Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce myself.
I am Stanley Martinez, a professional powerlifter.
I began with the sport in high school. Looking back, I remember being drawn to it because it's such a silent sport but the amount of patience, dedication, and self-motivation it requires is just immense! I was really challenged!
I began competing at 15. It was not easy. But as they say, if you want something, you work hard for it. And I did.
Now, I am at a higher level of play. I want to share the skills and the values that the sport of powerlifting helped me develop.
