Why I Got Started
I got started because I was tired of being the fat kid; I was tired of going to the beach or a pool and being embarrassed of taking my shirt off. I knew that at my age I was not supposed to be in the shape I was in.
I knew I didn't eat healthy and I wasn't healthy and it bothered me to the point where I couldn't take living that lifestyle anymore. I wanted to spark change in my life and live healthier which would bring increased longevity.
I wanted to get healthy and improve my physique and my self confidence, and I knew if I could do it, I could maybe help others around me who were in the same situation, that I could serve as motivation for them.
So I hit the gym hard and never looked back.

How I Did It
I always knew how to work out because when I was younger I was always in the gym because of high school sports so I was introduced to weights at a young age and I had some experience and wasn't new to it.
My problem was I wasn't too motivated and I would go to the gym and last 5 months and quit, and 3 months later start up again. After a while I completely stopped going and that's when I really fell out of shape, put on weight, gained a lot of body fat and lost a lot of endurance.
I realized that I couldn't live like that much longer because if I let it continue it would only get worse. I got back in the gym and hit the weights hard. I started getting involved with nutrition and gained a passion for health and fitness.
When I entered college I became an exercise science major and that also really helped me turn my body around because I started to gain knowledge and apply it to my everyday life.
Ever since then, health and fitness have become my lifelong goal and passion.
