I've always been interested in bodybuilding. Ever since I was a kid, lifting has called me. Over the years I worked out with weights periodically, but for a number of valid reasons, couldn't keep up with a regular program.
I returned to lifting around 2014 to fix my posture, regain lost muscle and weight after an illness. I deeply refreshed my weightlifting knowledge, practiced my form, adjusted my diet and kept up with routines. I found my first trainer for a fixed number sessions to be sure my form was right and I'll never forget what he said when he first saw me - he said "you are jacked!" I continue to make progress and most people think I'm a lot younger than my age.
I listen to my body and use a balanced, varied weightlifting routine which has really helped. I enjoy doing 21's, drop sets, and when I have time - doing century sets. I try to lift smart and compete only with myself.
Along my fitness journey I created some motivational gear to help myself and others keep going to reach goals and break through plateaus ~

Why I Love it
I'm fulfilling a life-long dream of lifting that had been postponed way too often. Working out is awesome. I love bodybuilding because of the results, the pump, the health benefits, and improved confidence. I also enjoy the mind-muscle connection in bodybuilding, weightlifting, and in other men who lift.
I love working out and you might even say that lifting is my fetish. I feel great, and most days, the gym scenery is great. I'm not much of a talker while I'm working out and usually pretty quiet. I'm focused and lost in space somewhere between the techno-dance music from my earbuds and finishing the workout plan in my head. I prefer free weights but appreciate machines. I do some yoga only because I have to, and my plumber pose is excellent.
There's no better feeling than having had a great workout and watching myself grow. I love to challenge myself to get stronger and make the most of my body. Post-Covid, I'm working toward regaining my mass and muscle at the gym, supplemented by my home workouts.
I'm always open to fitness business opportunities and have been thinking about getting certified as a personal trainer just for fun.
