Conversations with Wesley De La Rosa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Wesley De La Rosa.

Hi Wesley, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started personal training about 10 years ago.

After a friend saw me in a Spartan race advertisement that I didn’t even know I was in, she asked me to train her for the marines. 6 months later she made it in. After that other friends came to me for help.

Since then I’ve made it a career, and do this for a living among other things such as modeling and coaching parkour classes at Brackenridge Park. I absolutely love what I do, movement, and being active.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has not been a smooth road at all. Being a competitive obstacle course racing athlete, I had to learn a lot, but also self-teach a lot.

Some things I learned from other people, some I learned through research, and others I learned through experiences, both good and very difficult. I use all these things to help others not have to go through the same struggles in their fitness journeys that I had to endure.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I specialize in personal training and parkour coaching. I’m most proud of helping people through pains and injuries that have hindered them for years.

I’m known for being a very well-rounded athlete, training parkour, obstacle course racing, and now I’m getting into aerial performing arts as well.

What sets me apart from others is my unbreakable grit, positive outlook, and “forever a student” mentality.

Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I competed on American Ninja Warrior here in San Antonio this season!
