What's Your Name?

Bruno Aburto

Do you have a name for your gym?

Aburto Fitness

Tell us a little about yourself - what you do when you aren't lifting, what are your other hobbies, etc.

When I'm not lifting, I'm either working from home as a cybersecurity consultant or spending time with my wife and 3 kids.

What made you decide to create the best garage gym ever?

I've loved lifting since 8th grade when my buddies and I would do as many pull-ups as we could during recess and lunch. I lifted weights while part of the high school football team and during my time in the Navy. I created the best garage gym ever so I could continue my health and fitness journey and pass on my years of knowledge to my sons.
