    Hermosa Beach Planning Commission and City Council,

    My name is Giovanni Partida. I’m 24 years old, born and raised in the South Bay and have been lucky enough to have a position with Game Ready Performance for the past 7 years.

    Starting as a young athlete in college, I found Game Ready Performance as a means to set myself apart from other players on the field. What I didn’t expect at the beginning of my training, was to find not only a passion, but a career that allowed me to reciprocate the powerful knowledge, guidance and training that was once given to me.

    At Game Ready Performance, athletes are able to develop a close relationship with their data and their bodies. Each day, our wearable technology (heart rate monitors) collect heart rate variability information from each athlete that walks through our doors. Throughout each session data is communicated consistently. That being said, while the environment is upbeat, the level of noise is never louder than the sound of my voice in order to effectively communicate information.

    Another aspect of GRP is a mental building pillar. Dreams are actualized and aspirations become a realities when our athletes have a positive mindset and apply it to their lives.

    Every day I walk into GRP is a new day to help an athlete grow closer to being their best self both on and off the field. Game Ready has cultivated an environment where athletes are empowered to transform themselves into who they desire to be. I am so grateful to be able to do what I love in a city and community that is supportive of its youth and its local business owners to follow their dreams.

    Hermosa Beach Planning Commission and City Council,

    My name is Cameron Paulson. I’m 24 years old and have grown up in the South Bay my entire life. I’ve had a position at Game Ready Performance for over one year and currently act as their Director of Operations overseeing their flagship location in Hermosa Beach.

    After college, travel and multiple jobs have taken me elsewhere, I still find myself right back where I started... home. And I don’t mean the literal home I grew up in with a roof and a door, I mean the feeling of being home when I have my toes in the sand, when I walk the Green Belt or drive to Portuguese Bend. It’s a feeling that keeps myself and so many others coming back to the South Bay. The feeling of comfort, belonging, pride and love for such a beautiful place with such an amazing community. Game Ready Performance has not only given me a stable, reliable and growing job opportunity, it has also given me yet another place to call home.

    Living in an area that requires a higher amount of income to carry out daily life, I am beyond grateful to GRP for being able to support my dreams and be a driving factor in helping plant my roots in a community I plan on living in for the rest of my life. This space welcomes young professionals and helps them turn aspirations into careers all while showing our youth athletes that a life and career in this setting is within reach.

    Being in such a central location in the South Bay, the GRP facility gives me the ability to walk or ride a bike to work. As I am in direct contact with our athletes and their families, the topic of parking has never been an issue I’ve had to address.

    I am proud to be apart of a company that facilitates not only positive and healthy physical growth but mental growth as well. Each day, GRP instills values of self confidence and positive affirmations helping our clients become better athletes and more conscious and caring members of society.

    Game Ready Performance is a beacon of positive light, a safe space for our athletes, a tranquil place to process and decompress in a world that sometimes feels so heavy but most importantly a home for so many people in the South Bay community.

    I am and will always be Game Ready.

    Cameron Paulson
