Mr. Shane Giese


I started experimenting with dumbbells when I was in 5th grade. I always wondered why my older brother and father trained. I just thought they were wasting their lives because they were missing out of having fun. Little did I know that bodybuilding would become my favorite hobby.

Bodybuilding has impacted my life in many ways. People respect me for having respect for my body and sometimes ask me questions about bodybuilding. I don't think that I am better than people just because I lift weights. This is something that I do for myself and not to make myself look better than someone. Bodybuilding allows you to push yourself as hard as you want and learn what you're made of.
