Joe Piersante: A True UNBOUND Spirit
"Develop The Inner Strength To Become Unbreakable"
Joe Piersante is a true inspiration to us all. He has faced and overcome countless challenges in a career spanning over two decades as a Special Agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) of the United States Department of Justice.
Former Agent Piersante was tasked with some of the DEA's most complex drug investigations and was deployed three times to Afghanistan and Honduras with the agency's Foreign Advisory Support Team (FAST). Throughout his career, he demonstrated immense bravery, strength, and perseverance. His unwavering commitment to serving his country and keeping communities safe is truly commendable.
In 2011, Joe was deployed to Afghanistan, where he was tragically shot in the head. By a true miracle and the force of will, Joe survived but sadly lost his eyesight. Losing his eyesight was devastating, but he refused to let it defeat him. Instead, he channeled his determination into inspiring others, and through hard work and dedication, he transformed himself into an IFBB Pro Bodybuilder.
Joe mindset is unbreakable. He’s an American hero, DEA veteran, and IFBB Pro Bodybuilder who embodies the meaning of UNBOUND.
An UNBOUND Grand Welcome
This past week, we had the pleasure of spending a few inspiring days with Joe on his most recent visit to New Jersey.
Joe’s visit began with a speech at the DEA's New York Division, where he motivated current, former, and aspiring DEA agents. In front of a captive audience, he shared his story and spoke about everything he had gone through and overcome. His speech was a testament to the human spirit and the power of the human will.
Shortly after, he came to visit the UNBOUND team at Nutrabio Headquarters. Upon his arrival, he was greeted with open arms and was taken on a tour of our entire facility. During the tour, he had the opportunity to experience firsthand the work that we do and get a better understanding of our mission and values. After the tour, he sat down for an inspiring podcast, sharing his story, experiences, and insights with us. The podcast was truly an unforgettable experience, and we were deeply inspired by Joe’s unwavering spirit and message of hope and perseverance.
After visiting the NutraBio Headquarters, Joe and the UNBOUND team hit a workout session at Gym Outlaw, which is owned by our fellow UNBOUND IFBB PRO athlete Erik Ramirez.
It was a true honor to have the opportunity to hear from such an UNBOUND individual, and we are grateful for the time he spent with us. We are inspired by Joe and his unwavering commitment to never giving up. He serves as a beacon of hope, reminding us all that no matter what life throws our way, we have the power to rise above it and achieve greatness. His unwavering determination and his relentless pursuit of excellence serve as a shining example for us all.
