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

What was your workout/fitness/nutrition level before working at Bodybuilding.com?
Before I started working at Bodybuilding.com I was completely unhealthy. I weighed 225 lbs, wore a size 40 pair of pants, and smoked a pack a day.
Since making drastic changes to my lifestyle I am healthier than I have ever been weighing in at 105 lbs of lean muscle.
What does your workout routine consist of now?
I'm training for a triathlon which consists of running 7-11 miles daily with a mile swim every other day. I also participate in Tae Kwan Do twice a week which I have recently obtained a green belt.
To maintain my muscle I do a weight training routine two to three times a week.

What does your diet consist of now?
What supplements have helped you reach your goals?
It's all about the MusclePharm Assault for a pre-workout supplement which I follow with the Xtend after my workout for muscle recovery. Instead of sweets and junk food, I eat Whey crisp bars to curb the craving.
On occasion I will switch it up a little and take the Essential AmiN.O. Energy for the recovery.
What is it like working at Bodybuilding.com? Does it create a helpful fitness environment?
No matter where I'm at I'm always reaching for my fitness goals and Bodybuilding.com allows me to do this even when I'm working. The people I work with continue to motivate me and never give me a hard time with my workout routine.
How does the Bodybuilding.com environment influence your health, fitness and appearance goals?
No one is negative. They constantly motivate and push me further by letting me know that I'm a positive influence to them.

I have been inspired by my Bodybuilding.com family. I've never had such a positive work environment. I know everyone is in my corner cheering me on.
Did someone from Bodybuilding.com inspire you to reach your goals?
My whole Bodybuilding.com family as well as my 2 boys give me daily doses of positive inspiration. I've always wanted to keep up my kids and now they have to keep up with me.
Have you inspired others with your new look and attitude?
The changes have been so positive that I have had many stay-at-home mothers as well as people in the fitness community ask me "How and why?" I always reply "By getting out there and becoming part of it instead of sitting on the sidelines."
Get informed and motivate others and allow them to motivate you. Through the help of Bodybuilding.com I have had the opportunity to achieve greatness through unique supplementation.

My goals are to run a triathlon and take on the world in any way I can. I am currently writing a book "Before and After You Make the Choice." I hope in sharing my personal journey that it will inspire others in aspects of their personal growth for their future as well as the future of their children.
It is those children who will lead the next generation in being healthy and making the right choices for them. BB.com showed me that you can accomplish anything that you want with hard work and dedication. The possibilities are endless!
