How Did You Get Started?

My whole story starts at a young age. I was bullied all the way through public school up to grade 8 for many things; I didn't have the best clothes, best look or best personality. So when I started high school I needed a change. I was sick of being 110lbs and being picked on and I needed an out. So I hit the gym and instantly built a passion for it and never looked back.
