Notably, Frank life-changing begins after spending a couple of years in the gym and becoming more confident with his abilities. He started bodyweight training in 2010. Along the way, he grew to be a vegan bodybuilder. Although he was not born vegan, he ate meat for three decades. And though he has been training for nine years now, it was a little over three years ago when he found out that his two good friends; Noel Polanco and Dan Attanasio, were vegan. These two friends of his were also bodybuilders, and Medrano manoeuvred. They helped him get started with a plant-based diet, helped him make meal plans and clarified all of his questions within three months.


After twelve weeks on a vegan diet, Medrano approached Noel and Dan about joining forces and dispersing the word about the great things about eating vegan. Together, the trio established Vegan Calisthenics-X. Through their site, they answered questions, shared information, and produced videos of their plant-strong feats of strength.

In 2015, Frank had two photo shoots for a feature in the new Vegan Health and Fitness magazine.
