"FTM helps me simplify my nutritional needs by allowing to get all I need in just one place. After using SportMulti, I don't have to take as many pills as I had to. I highly recommend it"

Luis started practicing sports at an early age, playing soccer and swimming competitively from ages 8 to 12. After juggling between soccer fields and swimming pools, he decided to focus on swimming and went on to compete on several National Championships (with multiple podium finishes) in his home country of Venezuela. Additionally he competed in International Swim Meets, finally earning a full scholarship to swim for the American University of Puerto Rico. While in Puerto Rico, Luis was one of the team leaders as the male swimming team went on to win three consecutive conference.

During his later years in Puerto Rico, Luis acted as an assistant coach under the guidance of a former National Swimming Coach from Cuba. After a long break from sporting activities (other than playing recreational soccer), Luis started participating in triathlons in 2009, completing his first Ironman in 2011. Luis started coaching in 2011 and has helped athletes of different abilities from completing their first race to achieving a PR on a full marathon.
