Christian Guzman (born February 20, 1993) is an American amateur bodybuilder, YouTube vlogger, motivational speaker and fitness entrepreneur. He is the founder and CEO of the fitness apparel brand Alphalete Athletics, the owner and operator of the Alphalete Gym in Stafford, Texas, and per the LLC and Trademark registration he is one of the 3 founders and owners of 3D energy drinks. 3D Energy is based out of Kentucky, where one of the members mentioned on the LLC is from and owns/operates a supplement company in that State. As of March 15, 2019, he has more than 907,000 subscribers on YouTube and more than 1,000,000 followers on Instagram.
Christian Guzman was born on February 20, 1993, in Houston, Texas. He has one younger brother. In college, he played guitar and was a member of a rock band, but when the group disbanded, Guzman turned his attention to studying health and fitness management and developing his own fitness program. He attended Texas Christian University from 2011 to 2013, but did not complete his degree in favor of pursuing his growing business in fitness-related digital products.
Guzman began his fitness vlog in 2012 as an 19-year-old college freshman with videos of weightlifting tips and instructions. Since then, his YouTube channel's focus has become more general and incorporated aspects of his personal life, and is self-described as similar to "reality television." One commentator says that Guzman's videos are authentic to the point of being "occasionally boring", but this authenticity is part of what makes the channel successful. He eventually dropped out of college to pursue his fitness career full-time.
In a 2015 interview with Muscle and Performance, Guzman described the growth of his YouTube channel:
The first year, I was posting videos every single week. I stayed committed to uploading frequently. That year, I gained maybe 3,000 subscribers. After the second year, it was 20,000. It quadrupled between year one and year two. And year three, now the channel’s at 260,000. You just keep uploading, and if you’re putting out good content and effort, it will hit.
Late in 2015, Bodybuilding.com ran an article on him with the headline "300,000 People Watch Every Time He Trains!" It describes him as one of the most widely recognized fitness YouTube personalities. As of 2017[update], he has over 740,000 subscribers on YouTube and over 1,000,000 followers on Instagram.
Following his YouTube success, Guzman started the company Alphalete Athletics to sell fitness and later lifestyle apparel. The clothing style is described broadly as "athleisure" and is independently regarded as affordable but of high quality. Alphalete has been featured at international bodybuilding events such as BodyPower UK and is sold worldwide. Guzman eventually opened an "industrial-style" Alphalete Gym in Houston, Texas.
