HESPERIA, CA (VVNG.com) — AJ Buonarigo, CEO and Founder of Ultimate Fitness Club, 24-hour fitness centers in Hesperia and Oak Hills, appeared on the world’s largest live entrepreneurship show on the planet with the star of reality TV Wes Bergmann!

Ultimate Fitness is on a mission to end the misinformation being spread in the fitness industry, aka “Bro-Science”, and to fight the obesity epidemic that is rampant not only in the High Desert but across the country.

With AJ competing in these national docuseries, it helped not only shine a positive light on his mission with Ultimate Fitness, but for the High Desert as a whole. AJ grew up in the high desert and graduated from Hesperia High School in 2009, before joining the US Army where he served as a combat medic.

(While in the military, he earned his first bachelor’s degree in exercise science and successfully completed a second bachelor’s degree in business administration, as well as a master’s degree in business administration, currently working to complete his Ph.D. in business administration.)

Upon returning from his Afghanistan deployment, AJ was medically removed from the military for injuries sustained in action. He returned to his hometown to pursue his goal of opening fitness centers that focus on morals and business ethics while fighting the scourge of misinformation and greed in the industry. fitness.

He got the opportunity to show off his business expertise in a competitive environment not only on “The Blox” Season 4, but also on Season 6, becoming one of the first returning cast members!

AJ says, “The Blox is something called a business incubator, which is basically a program designed to eliminate trial and error in your business to accelerate growth. Not only was it a rewarding experience to share with my fellow cast members, but the knowledge and connections were invaluable! Anyone with business interests or looking to open a business one day should definitely check out the show, as it is packed with relevant information from people who are actively pursuing entrepreneurship! It might sound dry, but I promise you, with Wes at the helm, we got the reality TV aspect in there, too!”

(Season 4 of The Blox is currently streaming on “The Blox” free app and Beta Blox facebook page!)

When asked why he does so many different activities, AJ replied:

“We don’t live in a world where you can make change by doing what everyone else is doing, so if you want to make a change, you have to get people’s attention and lead from the front. I want to be the reason people actually believe they can pursue their goals, whether it’s fitness, business, school, or any other skill I might have to offer. I’m just a regular guy, who wanted to break free from the constraints of living on the hamster wheel so others could be more successful, and I believe there are plenty of other people like me who are afraid to take that leap. That’s why I went on the show, that’s why I do the majority of what I do, it’s to show people what an average person can accomplish!”

AJ wants to see a change in the High Desert and see it reach its full potential. He believes those who watch the show may start wanting the same things or at least be inspired to take the first step.
