In 2015 Romero represented LIFE*MOD at the 2015 CrossFit Games. During that very rigorous training schedule he found the benefits of the LIFE*MOD program to not only improve life for athletes but for every individual that takes the program seriously. It only made sense that as the season came to an end that Romero would continue to work with LIFE*MOD.
With Dr. Gonzalez’s blessing we will be opening our first location out West. Romero will be managing the office located in Denver, Colo. Romero brings a wealth of knowledge, not only in the health and fitness world, but has more than 15 years of experience in marketing and communication.
