Frank

Frank has always felt called to give back to his community. His service to others began as an Eagle Scout and a volunteer firefighter in his late teens. Frank played High School football and received the Coaches and Nick Zadrima award. He went on to play at the college level at Suny Cortland where he majored in Criminology. He spent much of his time in the gym training for powerlifting competitions and competed in the Worlds WABDL competition in Las Vegas, coming in second place in the deadlift in his weight class and age group of 20-23 year olds. In 2014, Frank graduated and went on to pursue his personal training certification as a way to help people reach their fitness goals. Frank recently began training for Strongman, has competed in a few shows, and plans to continue to compete. In July of 2015, Frank graduated police academy. After battling with personal struggle in 2018 and 2019, he finally reached out for help and support. Once Frank improved mentally, physically, he felt called to help other first responders who struggled the way he did, and provide them a safe space to face their anxiety, depression or addiction in an environment that had brought Frank so much mental and physical strength once before. From that calling, Reps For Responders was born. One of the first people Frank helped was his own father, a true public servant and volunteer firefighter for over 40 years. Franks father has been sober since November of 2019. Frank’s mission is simple but it’s not easy: To help you be a better version of yourself as each day passes, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Frank himself has been sober from alcohol since September of 2019.
