PONCE – Jorge Tirado and his wife Femillie González, just last Monday, March 1, 2021, inaugurated their gym with great effort No Fear Cross on Calle Ferrocarril, Esquina Marina in the Urban Center of Ponce.
Both studied sports science at the Pontificia Universidad Católica, Ponce Campus and, after graduating, they never managed to practice in the field they studied or at least not with a salary that they considered fair.
After the pandemic and not having a place to train, they began to train on a field near Baramaya in Ponce. Then it occurs to them to charge a couple of dollars to train there to people who wanted to join them and that is how the idea of opening their own gym came up.
“We started to buy the money equipment that we got out of our own pockets, without loans and with a lot of sacrifice,” said Femillie González, who has three jobs to pay for her expenses and contribute to the project.
For his part, Jorge Tirado explained to La Perla del Sur that with a lot of effort, after setting the goal of opening his own business, he obtained the Crossfit certification and the permits to operate his gym with all those of the Law.
They decide to call your business No Fear Cross because from the beginning they were not afraid to train or to get their business afloat in the middle of a pandemic. “You have to dare and face what comes,” said Jorge.
He also said that in this first week “we have had an excellent reception. Every day we have people who want to join our team, ”Jorge testified.
At the moment, they are dedicated to giving group trainings with capacity for 8 people and personal training by Femillie. In addition, they have healthy protein shakes and coffee for sale.
Their hours are from 5:00 am to 9:00 am for group classes. Then they close and reopen at 4:30 for personal training until 5:30 pm and remain open until 8:30 pm for group classes.
Jorge assured that in No Fear Cross “It feels a nice and familiar environment; people have responded super well; it feels nice ”.
Similarly, Femillie stressed that “now the Urban Center is full of life and a lot of youth” thanks to this project that she undertook together with her husband.
They both invited people to join the gym to enjoy workouts, be it group or personal, and do not be afraid to start a new healthy lifestyle hand in hand with No Fear Cross.
