Persistence Of A Fanboy W/ Herky Garcia— Real Chalk #64

In this week’s episode I sit down with a fan boy named Herky Garcia. Herky emailed me back in 2015 to work and train at my gym. I said no. He continued to stay persistent and even came down for a visit one weekend and asked me again in person. I said no again. Eventually he decided to just move to Orange County and gamble on this dream of working out at CHALK and hanging out with one of his idols (me).

Fast forward to today and he not only has a job here, but we consistently have sit downs where I give him motivating talks and try to teach him as much as I can. The reason I think this show is so great is because like Herky, there’s a ton of people out there reaching out to their idols and trying to make a move like this. In this episode Herky tells me how he had several living situation mishaps while being here including a few weeks where he slept in his car and even the gym. He asks me questions that he’s always wanted to know and I also answer a few questions off of social media. If you’ve ever been a fan of me or anyone else in this space and wondered what it would be like to drop everything and move, then this is the show for you.
