- How Faith, Focus, & Fitness Saved me
- Proficiency at baseball
Dan Venezia in a hospital on Palm Sunday, not knowing if he would ever leave that bed to see his wife and two teenaged sons again. Dan has a unique story to tell as a former professional baseball player, a successful fitness trainer, a loving husband and father, committed to share with others the power of faith, hope, and love.
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.
