My brother in law was into training alot and he got me started. My gf at the time bought me a weights bench with about 150lbs of weights for my 21st birthday. I didn't use that much until 6 months after my birthday when we split up and I found I had a LOT of time on my hands lol
Why I Love it
I love it because I feel better when I train. I eat better when I train, my overall lifestyle is very much improved when I'm working out. Plus, looking good isn't a bad byproduct you get from training hard and eating well!
