I have always been into weight lifting since playing sports in high school. I even competitively bench pressed in high school. I have always found time to devote to weight training and cardiovascular improvement. I have competed in triathlons and look forward to someday doing a marathon run.

I have always enjoyed spending time in the gym, which is why I train one body part per day six days a week. I do cardio everyday of the week for at least 45 minutes, which consists of mostly jogging. I have begun to incorporate more stair stepper and cross fit type cardio to break up the monotony.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I do not utilize a great deal of supplementation. I choose to get most of my nutrition from whole foods. I do though use a whey protein from CytoSport that is a combination of concentrates and isolates. I also take a multivitamin each day along with fish oil and vitamin D because I live in the Northwest.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

The stress release from training hard is a must for me. I enjoy the sense of accomplishment each time I walk out of the gym. I look at my training as a journey to longer and happier life. The gym is a positive place with positive people all around me so why wouldn't I want to be there is my thought.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

My motivation comes from the need to live life. I want to experience many different things in my time here and I know if I want to do that I need to eat healthy and train hard. Also, the looking good at the beach never hurts either!

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

I have always been intrigued by the discipline it takes to get ready for a show, but up to last Thanksgiving I never had the mindset. Now it is easy to gear my mind to follow a strict diet and do what is necessary in order to achieve at greater levels. Life to me is the ultimate goal and in that major goal are simply thousands of sub-goals.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I am getting ready for the Washington Ironman, which is being held on September 24th in Snoqualmie, WA. After that, I think I am going to switch gears a bit and train to run a marathon. I realize bodybuilding and marathon running are not two sports that necessarily mix, but it is the training that excites me.
