[ Q ] How does the Bodybuilding.com environment influence your health, fitness and appearance goals?
They never let you slack off of your workouts. You always have support of people telling you that you can do it, even if it seems impossible at times.
[ Q ] What are your co-workers like?
Most everyone here is at some level of fitness, some are pros and others are beginners. Some are into bodybuilding, while others are into
endurance sports like me.
It's fun; we all get together and share what works best for each other, be it our diet or our workout programs. There's no shortage of advice here.
[ Q ] Did someone from Bodybuilding.com inspire you to reach your goals?
My friend Maria in Finance got me hooked on marathons. I barely
ran more than 3 miles a day before I met her. Then next thing I know I'm running marathons, it's great!
[ Q ] Have you inspired others with your new look and attitude?
I'd like to hope so.
[ Q ] What is your favorite feature on the BB.com website?
I like the
training articles on the SuperSite. I'm always looking for new
strength training exercises and it's pretty easy to just select the body part I'm looking for and go from there.

[ Q ] How does BB.com help to motivate/support you?
The people, it's all about the people.
[ Q ] Does practicing the bodybuilding lifestyle improve the productivity of Bodybuilding.com? If so, how?
I definitely think it improves productivity. You can tell when someone's missed a workout because they're sluggish and grumpy. Those that work out all the time are upbeat and have tons of energy.
[ Q ] What are your future goals? Do you think working for BB.com will help you reach them?
I've had a lot of overuse
injuries in 2009 so I'm determined to train right this year. I've let my strength training fall off over the last 6 months and I know that's why I'm injured.
