Manny’s journey began with his own fitness studio, One To One Fitness, in Fort Lauderdale, where for over a quarter-century, he has been inspiring individuals to achieve their health and fitness aspirations. Yet, his endeavors are not limited to the confines of his gym. Through his passionate involvement with charities like Kids in Distress and his own fundraising events, Manny has demonstrated that real strength lies in giving back to the community. The Soldier Rush, an extension of Manny’s ethos, serves a dual purpose: providing a unique fitness challenge and supporting Fitness on a Mission. This 501(c)3 organization is wholeheartedly committed to aiding veterans, first responders, and their families. By joining forces, Soldier Rush and Fitness on a Mission drive home a poignant message: It’s not just about individual achievement but uplifting those around us. The camaraderie, challenges, and charity components are intrinsic to the DNA of Soldier Rush. Whether it’s climbing walls, racing to finish lines, or witnessing the real-life impact of community support, every participant walks away with not just a medal but memories that last a lifetime. In essence, Soldier Rush isn’t just an event – it’s a movement. A movement that celebrates the hero in each of us, the power of community, and the strength derived from unity and purpose. In Manny’s words and actions, we find a beacon, reminding us that when we join hands for a cause bigger than ourselves, we can overcome any obstacle. Soldier Rush stands as a testament to this truth, and as it strides into its next chapter, one thing is certain: It will continue to inspire, challenge, and make a monumental impact. This extraordinary event would not be possible without the support of our incredible sponsors. A heartfelt thank you to the US Army, Broward Health, Devotion Nutrition, Seacoast Bank, Ideal Nutrition, Keiser University, Funky Budha, Florida Panthers, Technical-Link, One-to-One Fitness, and Red Heifer Media. Your unwavering commitment powers this movement forward. For additional details, ticket purchases, or to generously donate to the mission, please visit
