Goldin Martinez

GF Activewear/Get Focused Foundation
New York
At 13 years old, Goldlin Martinez had a vision. He knew that some day he
wanted to start an organization that would not only help, but inspire
underprivileged children, empowering them to chase their dreams. At 18
years old, Goldin discovered a passion for fitness and exercise, noticing a
change in not only his physical appearance but in his confidence. After a
year, Goldin was a certified personal trainer, a popular fitness model, and
quickly became a rising star in the industry.

He served as a fitness consultant for the Department of Health & Human Services and was most recently honored by Mayor Bloomberg for his achievements as a leader
and activist in the community. He used his newfound celebrity to create
GET FOCUSED, an organization that introduced free health & fitness
programs and events for children and their families in New York City. He
created GF Activewear, a clothing brand that believes in giving back to the
community by donating proceeds to sponsor these events, "We strongly
believe that health and fitness isn't just a privilege, it's our right." Goldin is
recognized as the father of a movement that has helped thousands of people around the country.
In 2010, GET FOCUSED was recognized by Good Morning America as one of the "Best Upcoming Youth Organizations" in NYC, and in 2011 he helped the Police Athletic League
of New York City earn a 1.2 million dollar grant from Michelle
Obama's "Let's Move Initiative" by creating the entire fitness curriculum for
their center.

Goldin Martinez is a man with passion and a dream. He is the true
definition of "inspiration" and embodies the Upwave brand of health,
fitness, wellness and success. Goldin is committed to his goals of leading
an entire Nation of youths to achieve their own, healthfully and happily.
