[VIDEO] Man Turns 16-Year Prison Sentence to $90,000 Coaching Salary

While our non-profit, DEUCE Community Inc., is young, our work is bearing fruit. As more system, substance, and housing impacted individuals make their way through our developmental internship program we’re beginning to see real world transformation. 

David is living an inconceivable life now within a year of getting out of prison. 

We invited David Gonzales back to DEUCE Gym in Los Angeles to get an update about life after the program. Less than a year after being released from a long-term sentence, he is living a life that was previously unimaginable. David is now making nearly six figures as a strength coach and consultant in the Bay Area. You can watch his transformation above. 

If you’re inspired by the work that we are doing, we invite you to make a contribution. Monthly recurring donations allow us to do this work and if we had more funding, we could help more people just like David.
