Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love how you can mold and sculpt your body through progressive weight training. Feel strong, healthy and sexy due to the leanness you are able to achieve with good diet and exercise.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

Since I started this journey I have felt better now at age 42 than I ever did in my twenties. I have become a role model in my small town and have been able to encourage other men and women to make a change and get fit.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

At first, I just wanted to feel and look better. I was tired of hiding in oversized sweats and avoiding cameras at family events. Then I began competing and I was hooked. Now I strive to become even better at each subsequent competition and hope to earn a pro card someday.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I am competing this year in several competitions and am aiming to move up to the Physique category that NPC has implemented. I am aiming for the Olympia and possibly the Arnold for 2012.
