Why I Got Started


Health and vanity - in that order. I actually got into bodybuilding in 2000 with a friend helping me out. I got large and my strength quadrupled. However, essential to bulking up is that you have to eat and eat a lot. After about a year, life happened.

One thing after another and I just quit. Quit working out, that is. I still ate like a horse. At my heaviest I weighed an obese 234 pounds. I slimmed down a bit but couldn't get past about 218-220. I went up and down fighting weight in the socially acceptable way, diet pills, fad diets, a little exercise here and there.

Then the high blood pressure, high cholesterol, zero energy, sloth-like existence kicked in. I was this way for years. Finally my wife hit 40. Knowing that we looked horrible, me especially, and my prescription meds were getting expensive, we decided to act. We tried to do it on our own, and in the process found Bodybuilding.com.

One thing led to another, and my health improved dramatically.

If you want it done right, do it yourself.

How I Did It


We started with the Lee Labrada 12 Week Lean Body Trainer. I have always been a fan of Labrada and thought this would be a great way to train not only our bodies but also our actions. We began eating healthier, and made a pact that no matter what, working out would be a priority for our day.

The plan was simple and very basic. We missed one gym day in 12 weeks due to it being closed on Mother's day, and went out to the track and ran instead. We have integrated fitness into every aspect of our lives.

We firmly believe that our bodies are temples created by God, and by all means we plan to keep it that way.

That's one strong temple.

Suggestions for Others


If I had to give one reason this worked when nothing else has, it would be my Wife/Workout partner. She and I motivate each other, argue and laugh all the way through a workout. We have been married almost 22 years and it's like we've found our teenage selves all over again.

Don't be afraid to look in the mirror and be prepared to never be satisfied enough. Set small goals, and depending on you, quitting could cost you your health and happiness. Never forget who you are, where you come from and what you believe in.
