How Did You Get Started?
I had been lifting weights and working out for many years before deciding to compete in a bodybuilding show. In 2002, I was training at Lee Haney's fitness center and noticed another member getting ready for a competition; I had a brief conversation with him that peaked my interest. Later I was speaking with Lee about bodybuilding and the idea of competing; he suggested I look at a local promoter name Bruce Johnson who promotes the SNBF.
After doing some research, I had set a date for my first bodybuilding competition. I had initially told myself I was only going to do one show just to see what it was like. Needless to say, I fell in love with the sport/life style and the transformation from weight lifter to bodybuilder was complete. I had no idea, I would enjoy competing so much and I haven't looked back since.
