Body Transformation: Couch Crusher

Health wasn't in Kevin's vocabulary as an early teen. He drank Coca-Cola by the gallon and lived on the couch. Then a present from his mom activated his exercise engine!

Why I Decided to Transform

It all started when my mom bought me a new bike for my birthday. At age 14, I was fat. I drank gallons of Coca-Cola and woke up feeling tired every day. That's when I started to think about changing my life.

I pushed myself to ride my new bike around my home. After a few days of that, I went on a bicycle trip with my friend. The route was about 20 miles and it was hard, but I didn't give up. After succeeding with the bike, I decided to go to a local gym. I saw changes in my body right away which motivated me to lose weight and gain muscle.

The choices I made at that time affected my life greatly. I'm still a teen and I want to do what's best for me and my health. I want to keep training hard and see how my body changes for the better. I cut many people out of my life so I could accomplish what I wanted.

How I Accomplished My Goals

I didn't have any knowledge about training and nutrition at first. I started reading about nutrition and how to exercise correctly. I thought about quitting and returning to fast food occasionally when I sat on the couch.

When I had thoughts about quitting, I always went to my mom or dad and said "I want to quit." They always told me not to and to keep fighting. That's why I didn't stop. Their words made me view life differently, which I'm very thankful for now.

What Aspect Challenged Me the Most

Keeping my diet strict was a constant battle. It wasn't easy to see family and friends eating fast food in front of me. I knew I had to diet, so I didn't even bother to get myself something unhealthy.

My Future Fitness Plans

I want to continue transforming my body and become a personal trainer one day. It's my dream to compete in fitness shows and see Steve Cook live.

Suggestions for Aspiring Transformers
  • Take progress pictures to stay motivated.
  • Never give up, even when you want to quit.
  • Get plenty of sleep.
