How Did You Get Started?

At my heaviest point I was weighing two-hundred and eighty pounds, but when I started working out in January of 2006 I was weighed two-hundred fifty two pounds and thirty-three percent was body fat; very little had changed until I had met Kevin and Denise James in the summer of 2006. Kevin and Denise gave me the best advice that changed me forever. The advice was if your nutrition is not there you are wasting your time at the gym and ever since then I have changed my diet.

After that the weight and body fat started dropping. In November 2006 I started working with a personal trainer at gold's gym in Arlington, Washington. After two months of working with a personal trainer I had noticed that they were holding a transformation contest at the gym. I entered the contest weighing 212 pounds and 15.1% body fat; at the end of the twelve weeks I was at 192 lbs and 10% body fat. Around the time I had finished the body transformation contest Kevin and Denise told me about getting me on stage at the 2007 Washington state natural bodybuilding and fitness championship for the INBF.

The day of the competition I weighed 169 lbs and 5% body fat. At the age of forty I competed in my first bodybuilding show, I loved it. Then in 2008 competed in two shows for the INBF; so far in 2009 I have competed in one bodybuilding show in Falls Church, VA (The Natural North American) where after my forth competition I won the novice overall. Now I'm currently getting ready for one more this year in Arlington, Washington where I will be competing in the open class middle weight class for the first time.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

It's a great feeling getting on stage especially with how far I have came over the past few years in the battle I have had with my weight. It is fun to watch the growth and how my body has developed over the past couple of years.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

For me it's the fact that I was over weight for many years and I could never imagine eating the way I use to eat again. Now I feel so much better when I eat healthy.
