Q
Tell us a little about yourself. What is your position at Bodybuilding.com? How long have you worked here?

For those of you who don't know me, my stage name is Shaun Erlebach. I've been with the Bodybuilding.com family for more than 3 years and hope they let me loiter here for years to come.

As Site Merchandiser I'm responsible for strategic planning and calendaring of various content regions throughout the Bodybuilding.com store including the store index, category pages and shopping cart.

Shaun's position at Bodybuilding.com asks him to remain educated about industry trends and products. He helps you score from the store.

What was your workout/fitness/nutrition level before working at Bodybuilding.com?

It was adequate, but not at the current level it is today. Nutrition wasn't really in mind's sight and more of an afterthought. I visited the gym probably 3-to-4 times per week to fend off the love handles.

What does your workout routine consist of now?

My current workout routine has consisted of cycling off between the Kris Gethin 12 Week Hardcore Trainer and Kelechi Opara's Muscle Building Program.

What is it like working at Bodybuilding.com? Does it create a helpful fitness environment?

Imagine now, if you were a sweets addict working at Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. You'd never want to leave and work wouldn't be considered what is.

I love being involved in this company and given the opportunities within it to grow, both physically and mentally.

Bodybuilding requires defiance of natural forces, gravity included.

How does the Bodybuilding.com environment influence your health, fitness and appearance goals?

You're constantly surrounded by fitness information and colleagues striving to strengthen themselves. As Site Merchandiser, I browse the site daily and it's tough not to click on the dozens of inspiring articles and workout routines that are uploaded daily.

I'll admit, I digress at times and catch myself scrolling through meal plans or the latest workout routines. The positive reinforcement is abundant!

Did someone from Bodybuilding.com inspire you to reach your goals?

Not just one but as a whole, everyone has added some type of inspiration.

Have you inspired others with your new look and attitude?

I'm not sure, but I hope I do since that would make the transformation even more worthwhile.

What is your favorite feature on the Bodybuilding.com website?

BodySpace has been my latest obsession, as I spend more time on it than Facebook.

What are your future goals? Do you think working for Bodybuilding.com will help you reach them?

One of my goals is to step up and compete in a fitness show some time in the fall.

I know the Bodybuilding.com community has all the information and inspiration I'll need to prepare.
