BodySpace Physique Of The Month: 0Zero0
"My one true love on this Earth that will never leave me - Yosemite!"
BodySpace member "0Zero0", James Marquez' love for Yosemite and the outdoors was a product of family tradition of going to Yosemite for hikes and camping. He remembers as a teen finally getting to go with the grown-ups all the way to Half Dome which at over 4700 ft was a century ago called "perfectly inaccessible". Now at 26, James continues to wander Yosemite, he gets out among the Sierra Nevada's, has hiked San Gorgonio the highest peak in Southern California at over 11,000 ft, and is planning to do Mount Whitney, the highest summit in the continental United States at over 14,000 ft. He is also planning to hike the 211 miles of the John Muir trail to experience the adventures he reads about in the writings of the founder of the Sierra Club, John Muir, from the late 1800's.

But in high school, James was the skinniest kid in the weight room a little over 6 ft and 135 pounds. Joining the Air Force at 18, he eventually found himself in Diego Garcia where his buddies kept nagging him to workout despite his embarrassment about being so skinny. He kept going at it, but with the new idea that he needed to eat everything in sight to gain some weight. "Too many carbs" says James going from skinny to fat. At 212 pounds, magazines like Iron Man became his resource for information and he started doing cardio in his routine and worked on eating right. James finally saw another miracle of nature, his abs! His favorite workout is now abs!
Still in the United States Air Force in Reserves as an Aircraft Maintenance Scheduler, he continues to workout in the gym and he also enjoys swimming. At 178 pounds James is no longer embarrassed, he is looking good! James also found BodySpace on BodyBuilding.com as his new "home". It is "fun meeting people, talking to people about workouts" who are all interested in health and fitness. "On BodySpace you see people who are looking great too".
