I'm not some genetic freak who's always been jacked. I'm just your average bro. I've faced my fair share of struggles and challenges.
I'm certain I can relate to you on many levels as I'm sure you can relate to me. That's what makes us a great fit to work together towards achieving your physique goals.
I grew up as a scrawny little kid (first pic). Then at the age of 13 my parents bought me a York 2000 multi-gym and weight set with cement filled plates and I immediately become hooked.
After 6 years of consistent hard lifting at the age of 19 I weighed a whopping 123 pounds (second pic). I'm 5' 7" tall by the way. Definitely your definition of a typical hardgainer.
Then in my mid 20's life stresses caught up to me and kicked me in the ass. I was swamped running a business while starting a family. I began making poor nutrition choices, which led to me gaining 50 pounds of fat. I felt incredibly uncomfortable in my own skin. So much so that I wouldn't take my shirt off at the beach (third pic).
I struggled for nearly 10 years to lose that fat. I would lose a bit, then fall of the wagon over and over again. Then at 35 years of age and after losing 10 of the 50 pounds, I decided enough was enough. I was going to give myself 6-pack abs for my 36th birthday. I knew some serious accountability was needed, so as terrifying as it felt, I took some pics and posted them on social media (fourth pic).
Most people thought I looked good at that point. And I did compared to most guys my age. Losing that first 10 pounds definitely made a positive visual impact on how I looked. But I still didn't feel like myself. My appearance, energy, and mood wasn't congruent with who I truly was.
Losing fat and getting jacked wasn't easy, but it's been one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever gone through. And the best part is that it set the stage for ongoing success and adventure. I've never looked back. Continuously growing and improving in countless ways.
That's how I know this is a true lifestyle approach.
And now, 11 years later at 47 years young I'm feeling on top of the world living life to the fullest with confidence, pride, zest, and vitality.
