Why I Got Started
dot

I decided to change my body in order gain a healthier lifestyle. I have been in shape most of my life but in the past couple years depression led to too many drinks and partying. Along with all of this I was going out to eat almost three meals a day at fast food restaurants. I was starting to feel sluggish and tired all of the time. Even walking around the mall or up a single flight of stairs had me sweating and out of breath.

I have always worried about blood pressure and cholesterol issues as well because they run in my family. I didn't want to contribute to any of these problems any longer and decided it was time to take control. After a little thought and motivation from my friends I decided I wanted to enter a bodybuilding competition.

I already had the size I just needed to find the muscle underneath it. This is where it all began. I found a date for an upcoming competition and started working towards it.

Being a personal trainer I found it most embarrassing to have let myself get this carried away with my weight, but at the same time it allowed me the knowledge to take it back off. All I needed was the motivation and discipline to put in work.

How I Did It

I started off by doing quite a bit of weight lifting. At first 3 days per week, then 4-and-5 days per week. Once I had a solid routine I decided to add in a little extra cardio. I tried my best to ease myself into it so that I wouldn't get burned out and quit.

I started with tacking on a little cardio right after my weight training sessions. Usually my cardio session would last around 20 minutes in the beginning. After a while I began placing extra minutes of cardio every week 5 minutes at a time. I worked myself up to an hour of cardio after my weight lifting sessions.

Because I had a goal of maintaining muscle I left the cardio at hour sessions after working out and decided to add extra sessions in the mornings at about 30-40 minutes depending on the time constraints at hand.

With the entire exercising routine set in place I realized that a diet needed to come with my regimen in order to really start setting a goal for a competition. I started changing things I ate slowly until my diet became extremely clean. Through all of the hard work, a lifestyle change was created, and it's definitely one I'm sticking to.
