Why do you love Bodybuilding?
Bodybuilding gives me self-confidence; I was extremely shy as a kid. I now help other people with their training and diets. I've also trained several people for bodybuilding contests. I have one client this year that I expect will win some titles.
What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?
Hopefully staying young for as long as possible. I won the Overall Mr. South Carolina title at the 2008 South Carolina Bodybuilding Championships when I was 40 years old!!! Looks like this bodybuilding stuff works!!!
What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?
My motto is "Always believe in yourself no matter what!" In the early years people told me I was wasting my time. I was always determined to prove them wrong.
