Why I Got Started

I knew I wanted to improve my overall health. I always believed you should always strive to be the best you can be. You only have one body, so you should treat it with the utmost respect.

I was so used to being the skinny kid in school. I wanted to change how I was physically, and I knew that working out was the way to go. I played soccer almost my entire life, due to my British heritage. This made it so I was fit, but small in size. I wanted to be a bigger, stronger player.

I had seen magazines that had pictures of guys with the ideal body in my mind, so I knew that I had to set out and strive for that. My overall determination, coupled with the push from my friends and family helped me get started on my track to becoming a stronger, healthier individual.

How I Did It

It all started when I was sitting in my room at the age of 17. I looked at myself in the mirror, and I was just not happy with how I looked. I decided, I am going to do something about this.

I had been working for a while, and had a little money saved up. I decided to tell my parents that I was going to use this money to join a local gym. My parents were totally supportive of me, because they knew I was doing something I wanted to do and was positive for me.

My mom took me around to a few local gyms, and I finally settled on one about 5 minutes from home. This facility became my home away from home. I would go straight after school, and work out until my mom came and picked me up after work.

I would make time on the weekends to go also, and soon I fell in love. I had a newfound passion, and I was ready to put in all of the effort I needed to.

I was now lifting 5-to-6 days per week, and also decided to join my high school's rugby team. I was making great improvements, and I was extremely happy with where I was headed. I continued to follow this progression at the gym. Changing my workout routines, and making sure I mixed things up really helped me continue to grow.

I now am in college at Purdue University in Indiana, and workout at the tecreational center here on campus 5 days per week after classes. I make sure to follow my schedule, and this has helped me stay on track with my schooling also. I now plan to participate in a fitness competition held here on campus this upcoming spring!


Supplements are the key to my diet. They really help give me that added boost when I am not in the kitchen or dining court to get the nutrients from foods.

I make sure that I always plan ahead what I am going to eat that day. Without proper nutrition, my workout become slower and weaker, and therefore my results are diminished. Diet is key!

My training routine is fairly straightforward. My philosophy: Keep it simple! Just make sure to change it up a little every now and then! Your body will thank you for keeping it guessing.

I lift heavy about 4 days per week, followed by a light lift day, with cardio added in.

Day 2: Back/Biceps
Day 3: Chest/Triceps
Day 4: Rest
Day 5: Shoulders

Suggestions For Others

Never give up on yourself! There will be times that you feel you are not seeing the results you want to see. Do not let this deter you from what you desire. If you put in the effort, you will see the results.

Remember, it is not just what goes on inside the gym, but also what goes on outside of it as well. Educate yourself about what you should do, and how you should do it. You all have the ability to make a change in your life.

You should never be forced to settle with something you are not okay with. Work hard, put in the effort, and you will see the results you have always been looking for!
