My next door neighbor was giving away some weight plates and bars, nothing huge just around 15kg. I took an interest in them and after a few weeks I started to see changes. I then bought myself more weights and trained at home. After a few months, I decided to join a gym with a close friend and we started going from there.
The confidence it gives me, it makes me feel a lot better about myself. I enjoy every day of eating, training, and feeling healthy.
I motivate myself knowing where I want to get to, but working in a gym I feel I must set an example to the whole gym environment and the public in general.
I was always a skinny kid at school, with hardly an ounce of fat on me. So when I saw results when I first started I just kept on with it. I know where my goal is so I'm doing my best to get there.
I would like to move to America and do more on the Personal Training side of fitness. Just to get to the weight and look how I want to look. Also, I might think about competing.
Don't give up! You won't get to where you want to with the click of your fingers. Eat well, train well, and stay consistent.
Branch Warren for his intense workout videos. Phil Heath for his brilliant conditioning.
I use BodySpace to keep my stats and training up to date and see where I'm progressing. I also look at a lot of articles on the SuperSite. Forums are also useful for finding out new information about training and different exercises.
