Myers is the founder of Dogpound, the coolest, most Instagrammed gym in New York where Hollywood royalty — think Hugh Jackman and Alexander McQueen — train alongside lithe-limbed supermodels — Adriana Lima, Lais Ribeiro, and Karlie Kloss, to name a few.

Myers’ story is a powerful one. In high school he weighed well over 300 pounds and at the age of 21 was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Having resorted to fitness to literally save his own life, his journey led him to discover that his passion was helping others to achieve their weight goals also.

Here’s a before and after Myers posted to Instagram:

#motivationmonday #transformation when I was 16, … I weighed over 300lbs and was a terrible student in school. Today I am honored to be speaking to students @columbia about health, fitness and entrepreneurship. This is my first speech given at an IVY league school 🙂 THANK YOU to everyone who has supported my passion and the DOGPOUND community. It has been a long journey and there is still a lot to improve/ work to be done, but Im grateful to be here today and to have so many people around who support, care, uplift and make us better! 💕💕💕💕💕
