Why I Got Started
dot

A career change allowed me time to focus on myself. I started running a lot and focusing on core exercises. That manifested itself in to serious weight lifting. My goal is to compete in my first bodybuilding competition in October of 2009!

How I Did It

It started with a major change of my diet. I changed eating habits and food choices, eating every 2 1/2-3 hours and cutting out all fast foods. When I started training with weights, I began to view food as fuel.

I Began To View Food As Fuel.

I only eat the best proteins, carbs and fats. I feel that diet is just as important, if not more important than intense training. I made a commitment to myself to continue to sculpt my body until the day I die.
