Omar Villanueva Portrait


Century City, Coach

My Why

"I fear not the man who practiced 10,000 kicks once, but a man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times." -Bruce Lee

My Beats

If you knew Omar during his formative years in Long Beach, you’d probably describe him as someone who possessed raw, unbridled energy. It was this intensity that would  sometimes lead him into trouble. But as he got older, he would channel that energy into sports, and inside the ring was where he developed his love for boxing.

This transformation has become the core of his approach to coaching, and it’s exactly what he wants to see in his clients. “Making an average Joe, transform into a professional athlete, or even world champion is what drives me to become a better coach, and I strive for the clients I work with to feel that.”

With Omar, you’ll be encouraged to set your own bar, and not someone else’s. This philosophy comes from Omar’s biggest accomplishment, and that was overcoming personal adversity to graduate high school. “It may not mean much to others, but for me, it was huge because the life I had was all I knew, and all it took was a coach to believe in me.”

If you find Omar’s story to be inspiring, then just wait until you take a session with him. He’s got a knack for transforming your self-doubt, into self confidence.
