Coach Gabriel was born and raised in Fort Collins and has lived here his whole life. He grew up playing football since the age of 4 and has always been a competitive kid. In late 2017, he began training at the McMahon’s and quickly became addicted to Muay Thai. He trained in almost every class available and once the coaches felt he was ready he did his first smoker-which is an entry-level Muay competition. Coach Gabriel has shined in competition and has done several smokers and amateur competitions. After seeing how consistent he was and how quickly his skills grew, Coach Gabriel was asked to be an instructor. He now really enjoys teaching and hopes one day to become a professional Muay Thai fighter.
