// GHISTORY

Mario Godiva was an overweight kid growing up and has lost a lot of his immediate family to heart disease, diabetes, and rare cancer. Wanting a change from the unhealthy environment and habits he grew up around, he joined football and track in high school. Losing his mother at 16 was really the catalyst to him getting into fitness and becoming obsessed. Lifting and exercise helped him cope with the grief. You never stop grieving over the loss of a loved one, you just learn how to manage that grief over time.

// GSTRUGGLE

A turning point in Godiva’s own health occurred in 2014 when he was diagnosed with the same aggressive rare cancer that took his father’s life growing up. Defying expectations, he recovered and went into complete remission within two months. Since that time, he’s continued his personal mission to motivate and help his clients reach their full potential and has become an advocate for Cycle for Survival and rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
