Derek Beast Charlebois

Background

I started lifting after I watched Rocky 4. That movie really motivated me. I saw Rocky working out and striving to overcome obstacles, and I said, "That's what I want to be like!"

When I first started lifting, I didn't know that much about lifting when I started. A friend of mine showed me a few exercises, then I was hooked. I've been lifting for about a year and a half. I started lifting seriously about 6 months ago, taking nutrition and other aspects into view. Lifting has given me a lot of self confidence. It has also lead to me making friends. I am now a certified personal trainer! I recently passed the ACE certification exam.
