My name is Erik Martinez and I am an ifbb pro bodybuilder. My bodybuilding journey began shortly after graduating from cal state Bakersfield with a BA in business management. I had always maintained an active lifestyle so being introduced to bodybuilding seemed like a natural progression. At the age of 23 I was able to enter my first NPC contest and walked away with an overall victory. This early success gave me the confidence to peruse bodybuilding as a full time career. 8 months later I was able to earn my professional status at the prestigious USA championships. So now as a professional bodybuilder my goals are to become the best as a 212 competitor. I have a passion for bodybuilding but more importantly have a passion for inspiring/motivating others. If you can dream it then you can achieve it and always "stay hungry " and "stay humble".
