My Philosophy Of Fitness!

I feel fitness is a passion and a confidence builder. Expressing passion through fitness is a great way to feel alive and engaged in the world - which is truly the best simple pleasure.

Fitness is a passion and a confidence builder. Expressing passion through fitness is a great way to feel alive and engaged in the world - which is truly the best simple pleasure. To feel alive in the world today takes incredible strength, and one must step outside his comfort zone and risk humiliation. At that point, belief barriers have been broken resulting in personal growth and a "can do" mentality.

Me, Myself, and I

My self-worth has come from doing just that. Now I reverse the process to support me in being a better person. My ability to overcome obstacles is enhanced with having self-confidence. As they say "you are who you are, no more, no less." That's why it pays to think, feel and look your best.

I believe there is nobody sexier or more beautiful than a person with full confidence in themselves and their abilities. Confidence from a fitness enthusiast radiates like a light, drawing opportunities and admirers in compelling ways. Expressing a sincere and honest belief in yourself and your abilities doesn't mean you are conceited.

Just take a good look at yourself and know what your strengths are. Then use them to project the utmost confidence. While most people envy a person like that they also respect you for having the courage to live up to your greatest potential.


I began training only a couple of months out for my first fitness competition. About four weeks before the big day I injured my SI joint leaving me to reconsider competing so soon. I continued to get massage therapy and modality treatment for injuries and the breakdown of muscle tissue and joints from my workouts. I was not going to let an injury break me down. I backed off of heavy lifting for a week or so and certainly no longer practiced any gymnastic or dance moves.


Since I couldn't do any of those things that a fitness routine required for a spectacular and high energetic performance I had to reconsider my options. After all the hard work I had been doing for the last several weeks with training and diet, my body was changing and really started to look good. I just couldn't imagine not getting to compete. Since a fitness routine looked more than bleak a week before the big day, I called the promoter and inquired about Figure competition.

This I knew I could do. Now remember, I was training for the fitness toned look. Figure required more muscle mass and striation. There wasn't much I could do then about muscle mass but I could certainly do what I could to get leaner and striated by the competition.

I am proud to say that the judges liked what they saw and I received first place. No matter how far out you begin training for a competition or just to look better for that class reunion, remember that fitness is a confidence builder and the more you train the better you will feel about yourself and your abilities to accomplish many of life's rewards.
