Growing up, I was fascinated with comic books and the super human physiques in them. I would sit and draw them for hours upon hours. I think that every kid has a fascination with superpowers and being a hero, but I also wanted to physically look like the characters I was drawing. I started doing hundreds of push ups and curls at home. Later on, I joined the world famous Bev Francis Powerhouse Gym â âThe East Coast Meccaâ. In that gym I was quickly bitten by the competitive bug and it was then and there that I decided I wanted to be a Mens Physique champion.
Why I Love it
The ability to change your physique is a true metaphor about how you can change your life. The stage gives me an opportunity to show what I have created to the world. Bodybuilding is its own reward. We become stronger, healthier and more confident. However, competing allows me to put my physique and hard work up against people who do the exact same thing that I do â bust their ass in the gym and promote a healthy lifestyle.
