On Condition of Strength

My name is Gregory Seale and I am a strength and conditioning coach.

I come from and am very connected to the city that never sleeps. Born and bred in St James. I still live there. I even see the older heads I knew growing up from time to time.

My friends from the block and I played everywhere. Hide-and-seek in the trees, cricket in the cemetery, football in the streets with grass rooted from the nearby pan-yard for goalposts. Police never threatened to “take us down” for playing football in the streets. That threat came from my best friend Rawle’s aunt! She would call the police on us! We rode to Macueripe to take a dip and then rode back. And we made sure to go to church on a Saturday evening, when the young people would show up.

My father, Gregory Snr, passed away in 2015, his brother, Uncle Mikes, a year later. That was a tough time. I have two awesome daughters, Talia, aged 19, and Sanaa, 15, from my previous marriage and a livewire seven-year-old, Zaya-Kisa, with my wife Kwynn.
