Miguel, Marc, Riley & Julie


“President & CEO”

Making things happen despite the odds is a skill few possess – Miguel Aguilar has what it takes. He had all odds stacked against him. At just ten years old, he had a mother who is a drug addict. And then, his father was sentenced to prison for 22 years when he was 16. Consequently, he wound up homeless and living out of his car. He had to battle it out on the streets to survive – he raised himself on the mean streets. Miguel Aguilar was trying to figure out how to make somebody out of himself. There was no smooth sailing – he was roughed up by drug addiction, bankruptcy, and other bog downs before building his business from the ground up.

With all their heuristic skills and self-motivation, falling and getting back up again, Miguel Aguilar worked to build one of the most exciting personal training franchises in the country. His ingenuity created a phenomenon in the fitness industry with Miguel’s revolutionary concept. The deal was not to charge members a monthly membership fee as traditional gyms do. Instead, he managed to understand that perhaps there was an opportunity to cater exclusively to personal trainers. And, he realized that it’s something feasible and now he operates by merely charging those personal trainers a flat monthly fee. This way, they are facilitated to manage their training business out of, build their own business, earn over 6-figures doing so, and keep every dollar they earned in profit margin.Miguel Aguilar was an overweight kid who had life hammering him hard. But, he stuck it out passionately and turned out phenomenal as a self-made, multi-million dollar fitness entrepreneur. Self Made Training Facility is the fruit of Miguel Aguilar’s resilience, hard work, passion, learning, dedication, and mostly his high-degree of self-respect.
