Why I Got Started
dot

I started to balloon up in my freshman year of high school. You know how the coaches always tell you "You got to get bigger!" and "Eat, eat and eat." Well, that's what I did when I slowly, but surely began to pack on the unpretty pounds.

After high school I met my wife and I put on my share of nesting weight and then pregnancy weight with her while watching "World's Strongest Man" thinking to myself, who cares about muscle, a lot of these guys are still strong and they're fat. I continued my unhealthy lifestyle of pounding away 2 liters of Diet Coke day, dark beers on the weekends, ice cream, boxes of KFC with mac and cheese, etc.

My life took a change in December 2006. During the last semester of my wife's pregnancy we had pictures done and I was told by several family members that I looked like I was the pregnant one not just my wife, Carmen. It didn't help to add that on Christmas Day my dad compared me to Santa Clause.

January 1, 2007 I met with a friend in the gym just before one of my two jobs at the crack of dawn and worked out a couple of times per week. I began to see results and he introduced me to BodyBuilding.com where I began to act like a sponge and absorb and research everything about bodybuilding I could.

I started off at 215 pounds, size 36 waist in Jan 07, and went down to 155 pounds in July of 07 at a size 30 waist. I ran 3.5 miles - 5 miles in the a.m. hours, went to work, and then hit the weights after work while following a strict calorie cutting diet. I eventually figured I was getting too small for being 5'8" at 155lbs.

I began to eat more clean, solid foods and worked out a little bit less and I began to see change ... better change. Now, I am doing my first bodybuilding show this August. If you would have told me that two years ago I would have laughed in your face.

How I Did It
dot

I hired a trainer from Body Visions; stuck with my goal and didn't let anything come in the way of stopping it. My trainer DJ, and my wife, made sure I stayed on track and kept me motivated to reach my goal. Without them, and my wife's great cooking, I'm not so sure I would have been able to do it.

Suggestions For Others
dot

I was tired of being "One of those guys" who always said they will do a competition, and then never follow through with it ... I decided I wasn't going to be one of them anymore and challenged myself to something that few have the heart, discipline or willpower to do. This is the most physical and mentally-demanding sport out there, hands down.
