I began working out in high school with a buddy of mine after we saw Mark Walberg (aka Marky Mark) getting all the girls. We thought that could be us! So we trained in his basement on a small cheesy weight bench with sand weights and a few dumbbells. We blared the Rocky Soundtrack and pushed each other till we couldn't take it no more. If "Rocky can do it, so can we" was our motto. That and the help of Strength and Conditioning classes in high school and college helped solidify my life long journey in fitness.
Why I Love it
It's all on me. Me against the iron. No excuses. Accountability. A love affair that's tainted in hatred and grows in adoration. Training hard. Reaping the rewards. Feeling great. Those are the reasons. Need I say more?
