How Did You Get Started?

I got started when I was younger. Around 6th Grade I was doing 100 push ups, and sit ups everyday, it wasn't until 10th Grade that I started going to the YMCA here in Kamloops. I went everyday after school with my friend Vince Watson and his brother. It turned out nice to have someone who could lift the same weights, made it much easier to complete the exercises, and not to mention it was a lot more motivating. Competing to see who could lift more. Even though we never said "Oh I can do this, can you?" We deep down inside were competing to the end.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

When I went to the gym in 10th Grade I worked out everything everyday, not to many people can go by that kind of intense program, but with my natural genetics it just seemed, well, natural. I rarely got sore from the day before, so I figured if I wasn't sore, then I must be ready to pump the weights another time.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

My nutrition is not as balanced as I would like it to be, I eat what I can when I can.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I found Creatine Monohydrate worked really well for me; it's really the only supplement that I've taken. "If it's not broken don't fix it" is how the saying goes, Creatine worked, why change a good thing.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Weightlifting gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I love the feeling of my biceps ready to blow out of my arm, or my calves burning so bad I want to just say "Alright enough!" but you keep racking on the weights. Not only is it something that I've just adapted to, and now is just part of my daily life, but it also keeps someone out of trouble, and the motivation to do something, keep healthy, because I take pride in my body.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I don't really have to much of a future as a bodybuilder. I'm going to keep working out of course, I'll never stop; until the day I die I'll be pumpin' the dumbbells, but my life is with Heavy Duty Mechanics. I'll make my way through life with hard work, and determination to succeed; accomplish what I set out to do, and finish what I started.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

I'd say never give up, but listen to your body. There's a thin line between pushing your body to the max, and tearing your muscles causing permanent damage to yourself. Play hard, but play it smart.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

I don't pay much attention to the bodybuilding world, but Max Wheeler always stuck out on the posters I've seen.
