That year, he attended The University of Texas Pan-America, where he played on their Division I basketball team. He then transferred a year later to a Division II school to be closer to home and not to forfeit a year of eligibility. That college was the American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts, where he flourished and helped the team win a conference championship during his senior year of competition.
Basketball was not who he was, it was what he did. He loved the game but more importantly loved the opportunities it afforded him in his life; such as traveling, meeting new people, learning how to make sacrifices, developing great time management skills, and it also gave him the means to pay for his education, as well as a ton of other phenomenal aspects that came along with playing the game of basketball. But, he always knew deep down inside that he had a higher calling to do more then put a ball through a hoop. He felt his purpose in life was to help others reach their goals and happiness; which he found through fitness. By him dedicating himself to training in health and fitness, he has been able to help others. His clients have become not only excited about their outside results, but he also helped build and/or rebuild their confidence from the inside. Most people need to overcome various obstacles that life generates throughout their daily walk and grinds in life, and fitness and exercise can do that. So, no matter your age, body type, fitness goal etc…let’s begin this journey together. I, Dwayne Gutridge Jr., look forward to becoming your trainer and let’s WIN together!!
