Why I Got Started
dot

My sophomore in high school I was tipping the scale at 260 pounds. I got the nickname "Chunks" from my friends and it still is among certain people. I wasn't in bad shape, I could run a 10-minute mile and was still athletic, but my body fat was high due to the poor food choice at school and having a passion for food.

I realize now that I ate because food was my drug. I felt better when I ate. But I realize there is way more to life than just eating and my health was in big risk. I picked up a Muscle & Fitness magazine and made a commitment to get in the best shape possible.

How I Did It
dot

My sophomore year I joined wrestling and ended up losing 30 pounds and felt good but I soon shot back up 10 pounds. Upon graduation I weighed 225 pounds in June of 2007. Over the summer I started a better but not so good diet (where I got down to 190 pounds), but it was a low carb diet for months at a time and I didn't know much about nutrition.

Over the summer of 2008 I started researching a lot on Bodybuilding.com. That summer is when I saw my greatest gains and fat-loss. After much trial and error with a lot of frustration I finally found what was right for my body.

I have to say there were a lot of sacrifices in order for me to get where I am. I feel so much more energized daily and in great health.

In addition to jujutsu, many schools taught the use of weapons.
