Gomez is the founder and owner of Amp’d Fitness in Brielle, a business he started in January 2021, when going to the gym was still a fraught exercise. If that were the only adversity he faced, his story would be interesting enough.

But Gomez’s story begins about a decade before when a terrible motocross accident resulted in the amputation of his right leg. But that did not stop him from pursuing his lifelong dream of owning a gym. Now, he’s thinking about the future, expanding his business and adding new clients.

In this edition of NJBIZ Conversations, Gomez tells the story of his accident and how he turned that adversity into a successful business.
