Why I Got Started
My story started for the same reason many other guys hit the weight room, I was tired of being skinny, I wanted to be better at the sport I love, and, let's face it, it's nice when the girls notice.
It was difficult at the beginning because I had a high metabolism and didn't know what road to take. Thankfully, I came across Bodybuilding.com. Here, I gained a lot of vital information and hit the gym hard.
I also learned about proper nutrition, rest and recovery. I never really knew what I wanted to do with my life career-wise, but once I got into the gym it all became clear. I am now a personal trainer and will continue to love bodybuilding and be the best I can be.
How I Did It
Basically it comes down to pure determination. You get out what you put in. People will put you down, they will want you to fail, and I used this as my fuel, drive, and desire to succeed.
If you don't have a training partner, I strongly advise that you get one, not only for the motivation, but for safety as well.
