As a child living in Columbia South America, Juan Jimenez witnessed perhaps some of the most gruesome events he would ever have to endure in his lifetime. Columbia was in a state of turmoil that spread to the civilians resulting in mass killings through kidnappings, bombings, and other warfare-like catastrophes. The worst was yet to come and Juan lost contact with his parents one day when a massive explosion rocked a church they were at while Juan was across the city at a friends house. Fearing that his parents were dead, Juan immediately rushed to the church only to find land mines filled the pathway inside. For over 6 months Juan's parents were missing but found alive in captivity in the outskirts of the city. Miraculously, Juan was able to get in contact with his father and together they paid a ransom to free his mother. They immediately sought refuge in Canada where they have made it their home for over a decade. With nothing more than $60 in his pocket, Juan worked as many as 4 jobs a day to put himself through college to studio human kinetics where he ultimately found his passion with helping others through personal training and nutrition assistance. Clients lead to competitions and competitions lead to business opportunities. Today, Juan is the founder of Active Body Nutrition, Canada's leading vitamin and supplement store, with 8 locations in Canada and another 10 franchises in the works.
