We had the good fortune of connecting with Anthony Garcia and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anthony, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
I want to be remembered as someone who was determined to help out someone in need! I want to be able to open a gym and help change peoples lives
What should our readers know about your business?
I am one of three owners of an Arizona based company called IRONGANG Nutrition. We pride ourselves and building strong relationships and working with supplement companies to bring the best supplements to our customers. We have been in the industry for just over two years now and have grown so quickly. Due to some negativity within the company we went from four owners down to three. One of the hardest but smartest decision we’ve made. Like I’ve always said we pride ourselves in building strong relationships but sometimes that doesn’t work and you have to part ways. We tried to bring on another owner at one point but all decided it was best just to stick with the three original guys that started in IRONGANG Nutrition. It’s not easy making these types of decisions but in the long run you do what’s best for your brand! The three of us come from a very similar background which makes it very easy to get along and make decisions. We went from only having a simple pre-workout to having multiple pre-workouts and a ton of supplements as well as a very known apparel line.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Knowing that my best friends all like to do the things I do I would start by showing them the two SelfMade Training Facility‘s here in Phoenix and Scottsdale. I would also take them to some of the stores that are currently selling IRONGANG Supplements. Knowing Phoenix has some of the best restaurant I’ve ever been to, we would start at a steakhouse and end the week enjoying some of the best Mexican food I’ve had in years! I also like to partake in adult beverages, so we would spend some time enjoying our evenings after working out at some of the bars in town “ earn your booze “ ( another great company out here). Knowing that I love the Arizona sun we would spend lots of time in the pools and enjoying a ton of boating and lake time!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have been working side-by-side with a very inspiring person by the name of Jeff Mahaffey. Jeff is the owner of SelfMade Training Facility here in Phoenix Arizona. He has taught me not to be scared to stand up for what I truly believe in even if you’re going against a higher power! The government has tried to shut down his private training facility and he won’t stand for it. As myself and the other trainers attend his private training facility he fights for his rights to stay open and stays positive when things are extremely negative! Witnessing someone stand up for what they believe in really brings me back to when I was struggling on the streets and wanting to give up but something told me to stand up and fight! Which is why I am where I am today. So seeing someone like Jeff stand up for what he believes in just makes me proud to be a part of the SelfMade Family and a witness to Jeff’s success!
