I got started 10 years a go when I finished playing soccer and got a gym membership to a local 24 hour fitness. I'll never forget this experience. It was a good ol' hardcore gym that had a great atmosphere for falling in love with this sport. One of the members invited me to watch his bodybuilding competition and remember saying to my friend "I will be up on that stage next year". Needless to say, I did my first show 1 year from that day and have been hooked ever since.
Why I Love it
It is empowering to know that I am in control of the physique that I have to stare at in the mirror everyday. It is my fix. My release. My passion.
