I did not even know the meaning of the sport bodybuilding until I was around 17. It was during a summer break that my older brother decided to take me to a local gym since I was really bored at home. As I spent more and more time at the gym I started seeing some small changes in my body; nothing too drastic but it seemed to be quite enough for the people around me to notice me more. As time went by I started doing my own research, reading this site right here until seriously I got hooked up on the sport and now its my lifestyle. I entered my first competition at the age of 19 and placed 3rd in a teen division. While pursuing a B.S. in Kinesiology my interest for Nutrition sparked. I knew nutrition was a huge part of training, recovery etc so I decided to pursue a minor in Nutrition as well. After graduating from college I participated in some other bodybuilding show and won them. Meanwhile I also was involved in fitness modeling and it blew up in 2010 with magazines such as Muscle and Fitness and Physique Magazine. Now it's my life however I am no longer competing in bodybuilding but following a different path into the new NPC division Men's Physique. I plan to bring it my best and keep motivating others.
Why I Love it
You can buy the hottest car, the biggest house, the nicest clothes but no one can buy a healthy body. You need to work for it and that displays character. I love training because it gives me an euphoric feeling of control over my life and health. I'm always eager to step into the gym (some days more than others) and I know I work hard for what I want. It gives me motivation on a daily basis to keep my life running and functioning. Since it is my lifestyle I could never see it not being there. As an uprising elite trainer in Denver I now try and inspire and teach others why training should be something looking forwards too and not something they have to do because they have to do it. If I can inspire 1 person to have the passion for training I know I have lived this life correctly.
