Drop the Weight of Winter Excuses
Frank Nunez’s first attempt at weight-lifting ended with a group of girls rescuing him after he trapped himself under the bench press bar. An aerospace engineering major at the University of Michigan at the time, he was 6 feet 2 inches tall, and weighed 105 pounds.
Nunez reports that that was a make-or-break moment in his life and from that moment on he wanted to know everything he could about working out. Since that time, he has worked as both a personal trainer and fitness model in his 22-year career in the fitness industry. Currently, he is the co-owner of UNICUS Fitness, a Chicago-based consulting, design, management and programming company for fitness facilities. Though still trim, he has bulked up to a much more muscular weight over the last two decades.
Nunez discussed winter exercise and more at his newest project, the Fitness Lair, on North Michigan Ave, a facility touted as the first and only private fitness studio on the Magnificent Mile.
Frank had a tumultuous beginning with the bench press, but his determination and motivation pushed him to succeed. Read the full interview here: Medill Reports Chicago
