virtually the same road. Seeing the ginormous promotional posters for each show made me realize that the shows I had been watching on television for years happened right behind those walls, and they were real. The thought absolutely blew my mind. As we drove
by each studio, my yearn to be on the other side of those walls grew stronger and stronger.
There’s nothing more fascinating than meeting someone you’ve seen on television, online or in the movies. Seeing a person go from screen to reality right in front of your eyes is just plain old cool to me. Working with Dennis LaValle has allowed me to experience this all in one week! Since Dennis is one of the most successful acting coaches in the business, he has a boatload of stars under his belt, and they are like a second family to him. He has coached celebrities who we all know and love like Vanessa Hudgens, Victoria Justice, Chris Evans, Kellan Lutz, and so many more. The list goes on for miles!
The view of Los Angeles from the plane was simply breathtaking. In all my years, I don’t think I had ever seen so many lights. I watched the millions of cars speed down the famous highway 101 and twinkles dance from every house, building, and skyscraper. The amount of people in one area was incredible! Going from having to drive 30 minutes just to get to a grocery store to seeing this incredible population was an experience like no other.
Wesley Ferrer is a professional, lightweight boxer who presently retains the position of being undefeated! Staying on top with such a title is not an easy task. The fitness regiment and routine that Wesley follows requires both dedication and persistence. This is obviously visible in his performance while engaging in the sport. Here are some suggestions that work for Wesley, and not only keep him at the top of his class in the world of boxing, but also are extremely beneficial to his overall health.
o Running – Running is incredibly effective at making you healthier in a number of ways. It can relieve stress, help you lose weight, prevent disease, boost your confidence and eliminate depression. Overall, running can positively affect your body and mind so you can live a healthy and fulfilled life!
o Swimming – Swimming is another great cardiovascular exercise to utilize to stay in shape. The water cools down your body while still increasing your heart rate, and is also gentler on your joints and muscles. Swimming targets your core, arms, legs, glutes and back, giving you a total body workout experience.
o Calisthenics – Calisthenics are exercises that consist various rhythmic
movements. Generally, calisthenic exercises do not use equipment. Instead, these workouts are designed to increase strength, fitness and flexibility by using movements such as pulling/pushing up, bending down, jumping or swinging by using just your body weight.
o Light weight lifting – Using heavy weights aren’t the only way to build muscle. Training with lighter weights can help you increase strength. Using lighter weights, in conjunction with increased reps, targets muscles with the greatest potential for growth. In addition, working with lighter weights decreases the possibility for injury and stress on your joints, tendons and ligaments.
Wesley Ferrer didn’t always think he was going to be a professional boxer. At the age of 14 years old, he picked up his first pair of gloves at the playful encouragement of his uncle in the Dominican Republic. Shortly after, Wesley and his father moved to NYC where Wesley expressed interest in joining a local gym to begin boxing as a hobby. As soon as he threw his first, his father knew that he would be a champion. And that is where his training began.
At first, Wesley struggled. The harsh, physical demands of the sport, in addition to the time commitment to practicing and preparing for a fight, where hard to get used to. But under the training of his father, Wesley began generating a buzz around his career.
His first pair of golden gloves were won in 2009 at 16 years old, where he fought against 25-year-old William Moyet at Madison Square Garden. From there, he became undefeated in the professional boxing world.
Now, at 23, Wesley’s goal from here on out is to keep working hard to become a world champion. Through boxing, he wants to not only give his family a great life, but also inspire others through by telling his story.
