How did your fitness
journey begin?

I was really skinny and athletic growing up and was normally the smallest in every sport I played. I discovered ice hockey at age 7 when my dad signed me up and I loved it. I was the smallest kid on the ice and was an easy target for opponents.

I asked for a weight set for Christmas as a high school freshman and my parents came through. That's when I started working out daily to get bigger for hockey. I started seeing results fast, which kept me motivated to keep working out.

In high school, I had lots of upperclassmen friends who were into working out, so I wanted to be like them. Seeing older kids work out gave me motivation to be the best I could be.
