Why I Decided to Transform

I wanted to transform primarily because other guys told me I was a skinny runt. I took their hate and criticism to heart and built the drive, motivation, and support to start a transformation that took years to finish.

I always wanted to be a bodybuilder growing up. I looked up to my dad who was a bodybuilder and cultivated motivation from my icon, Arnold Schwarzenegger. I always wanted to look good in clothes, live a healthy life, break into fitness modeling, and compete. I decided to change my physique and take it to next level with motivation and dedication to become who I am today.

How I Accomplished My Goal

When I was younger, I was athletic and sports came naturally. I was blessed with good genes, but found it difficult to gain weight and muscle mass. At age 16, I admired Arnold's physique and created a diet and weightlifting plan that ultimately resulted in the physique I admired.

Bodybuilding requires drive, commitment, and discipline. Motivation to hit the gym every day and eat properly came from an inner strength that I depend on daily. I downloaded motivational quotes from professional bodybuilders onto my phone and used their words of encouragement to reinforce my efforts in the gym.

I accomplished my goals by maintaining and working toward my ideal goal. Fitness became a way of life. My efforts culminated in a great physique that I can be proud of. I accomplished my goal, but I have more to go.

What Aspect Challenged Me the Most

Dieting was the hardest part, but I learned over time and it became less challenging. My fast metabolism was another challenge. It's hard for me to put weight on, so I ate at least four meals per day with a couple protein shakes.

My Future Fitness Plans

This journey is never going to end. I plan to compete more and get a pro card. I have already shot with one of the best fitness photographers, so my next goal is to be featured in a magazine or website. Eventually, I want to be a sponsored athlete.

Suggestions for Aspiring Transformers
  • Set your goals.
  • Dedicate yourself, be motivated, and be organized.
  • Take pictures from the beginning and keep taking them.
  • Dieting is the most important aspect of fitness.
