How I got started:
All of my life I have struggled with my weight. When I reached the age of 17, my health had gotten out of hand. I was topping the scales at 260 pounds, and had been medically classified as obese. My doctor told me if I did not do something about my weight I would have serious medical problems down the road. Socially, I was continuously being made fun of because of my weight. I was depressed and unhappy with myself. Every day I was singled out because of something I felt I had no control over. Countless times I had tried to lose the fat, however, every time I was met with failure. This changed when I was introduced to resistance training my junior year of high school.
Over a period of nine months I had lost 90 lbs. I went from 265lbs with a 46" waist and 32% body fat, to 175 with a 7% body fat. My depression had gone away, I felt incredible, and I no longer felt alienated. It was a total body transformation in nine months. Since then, I have adapted a bodybuilding lifestyle. My current fitness regimen includes staying as lean as possible while continuing to improve my physique. Bodybuilding has brought me much more than I could ever have dreamed. Not only has it given me my health back, but it has also brought me priceless friendships and a career as a personal trainer.
As A personal trainer I pledge to undergo appropriate progressions with my clients to deliver results in the safest, fastest, and most effective manner. I am currently going to Kansas University in pursue of an Exercise Science bachelors degree. Upon graduation I am planning on pursuing my doctorate in physical therapy.
