Hi! As you know my name is Nicholas Gogel and I am here to guide you to being The Ultimate You! I chose early on to live my life with positivity and to be full of happiness, no matter the circumstances. Life isn’t easy and sometimes the cards that we are dealt are not fair, but its how you choose to play the game that determines the person you become. I was born with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 4 years old, so having to overcome obstacles became part of who I am. I grew up with 3 siblings around the same age, so there was no room for special treatment. I never let being diabetic slow me down one bit, as rather than feeling down about having a disease, I was a student athlete who participated in everything. I could have given up and let my body go, blame it on having bad luck and fold early. Instead I became the best version of myself, always stayed on top of being in the best shape I possibly could, worked out hard, stayed very on top of my diabetes and was even an international model for 10 years with Ford Models. My love for sports, physical activity and delicious cuisine was never effected, as I did not let it! My mom made sure I never felt different and to this day I never see being diabetic as a setback, if anything it shaped the man I am today. I am here to tell you life isn’t easy, but it’s the attitude in which we choose to face these challenges that defines who we are. It’s never too late to become a better you and to feel your best. Lets do this together!!
