My name is William Holloway, I was born on October 25th in 1974, and raised in Fort Lauderdale Fl. Growing up I played multiple sports such as baseball, football and basketball. By the time I was 23yrs old, I started competing in high level power lifting competitions from 1997-2008. I had a squat of 501lbs, bench press of 374lbs, and a dead lift of 523lbs. Therefore, I had a grand total of 1398lbs which put me at an elite level of men open with a 140lb body weight.

During that time, I was training at Fox Personal Training in Fort Lauderdale from 1998-2000. Then from 2000-2004 I began training at the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Boca Raton FL. Finally, from 2004 to now I’ve been training at Get Fit Wellington and within that time I also have gotten CrossFit certified in 2009.

My passion for fitness started over 25 years ago, and reached its peak when I moved to this country in 2003. I know what it means to struggle with being overweight, because I reached around 200 lbs after having both my daughters. For 6 years I had the opportunity to teach spinning, kickboxing, and personal fitness in Miami. In that time, I also competed in figure competitions. In all honesty though, working in this gym for over 5 years has given me the opportunity to work with kids, adults, and seniors. It has let me see in each of my clients not only the desire to live a healthier lifestyle, but also to reach personal fitness goals. This job has also let me share in their lives my love for the Word of God. I’m very glad and thankful to be a part of the GFW family.
