- How Faith, Focus, & Fitness Saved me from COVID-19
Dan Venezia in a hospital on Palm Sunday, 2020, not knowing if he would ever leave that bed to see his wife and two teenaged sons again.
The Coronavirus’s death toll was mounting all around him. A fitness trainer, a coach and mentor to young athletes, as well as being a motivational speaker, he experienced weeks of needing others to offer him what he had provided professionally for years.
Growing up in several of Brooklyn’s rougher neighborhoods, when Dan’s father deserted the family life became even tougher. His mother served as his first role model of how hard work, mental toughness, and faith-filled resiliency can empower one to overcome life’s greatest obstacles.
His passion for and exceptional proficiency at baseball led to a full scholarship, his being drafted by the Minnesota Twins after college, and a professional career as player in that organization.
Dan has a unique story to tell as a former professional baseball player, a successful fitness trainer and coach, a loving husband and father, and a passionate follower of Christ committed to share with others the power of faith, hope, and love.
