My name is Bobby Ojala.

I am 30 years old. 

I am passionate about helping others. 

This is my why... 

Growing up in Lake Berryessa, family was everything. Spending time on the lake swimming and fishing was how I grew up. When I wasn't reeling in a Catfish with pops I was fielding ground balls, skateboarding, playing in the dirt or learning how to weed whack the perimeter of the yard. In fact, for my 13th birthday my father had me unwrap my very own brand new weed-eater.

 

I loved playing sports my whole life, at Napa High School I played baseball, football, and wrestled.  I enjoyed competing against others, I was just about as competitive as they make 'em. I wouldn't say I was a very happy loser, either. However I gained so much from my experience growing up playing sports and made some lifelong friendships also. 

On May 2, 2010, just a few months before i graduated High-School, I lost my father suddenly to a heart attack at the age of 49. 

My father was the man who dedicated his life to his family and didn't make the time for himself. Bad eating habits, and sedentary lifestyle were contributing factors to his early death. 

 

After i graduated High-School I had the opportunity to play baseball at the Napa Valley College. I had a great season at shortstop, batting over .500 on the season. Although I was dominating the baseball field, my grades were dominating me. I wasn't able to balance playing sports and learning about things I had no interest in. about a 1/4 of the way through my sophomore year, I dropped out and started working as a server, while I lived in a friends garage. 

Working as a server, turned into me wanting to work in the kitchen. So i made the transition and ended up becoming a good cook, notably I worked under Iron Chef Morimoto for 3 years as a line cook in Napa. The kitchen taught me a lot about real world work experience and how to work my ass off! It also gave me an inside look at what my life could look life if I continued to pursue that career. I was not a fan of the long nights, or the harsh, unhealthy work environment I found in the restaurant industry and knew I needed to get out, not only for my health, but sanity. 

Around the same time my buddy was telling me how he just finished a trade school and was about to be changing his career path completely. As someone who felt stuck in my current situation, this gave me the hope that I could do the same thing with my career. 

As I started to think about what I was passionate about and what my soul purpose on this planet was, I started to realize how much I missed playing sports and being active. I also was able to understand that my father would most likely still be around if he was healthy and exercised and ate healthier. 

This is when I decided to become a Personal Trainer. To this day, the best decision i've ever made in my life! 

 

I am passionate about helping others live healthy, long, and strong lives. I want families to see their grandkids, I want more sons to have their fathers, I want more people to feel confident and live their absolute best life!
