Hello VIP, my fitness journey started when I was about 6 years old, I was walking down the hallway from my bedroom to the kitchen and as I passed by my oldest brother’s room, I noticed that he was sweaty and was doing some type of movement with his arms while holding an object in his hands, I then asked him, “hey what are you doing, and he said, “I’m working my out arms.” I then entered his room and climbed on his bed, and lo and behold, he had magazines scattered all over his bed that had pictures of guys with muscles.
As I flipped through the pages of one of the magazines – Muscle Power, now Muscle & Fitness, I became amazed and fascinated with how the men in the magazines looked. Right there and then, I had decided that I too would be built like them when I grew up.
Fast forward to my freshman year in high school, I wasn’t into sports or was no sports jock, but I had become really serious about working out. Like so many starting out, I had no guidance or even a clue on how to workout.
The internet wasn’t so widely available back then like it is now, so I followed what those huge bodybuilders in the fitness magazines did, only to find myself chronically overtrained, injured and at one point Anorexic and Bulimic.
Overtime, I lost hope and quit, but the bug was still in me, except my body was torn and beat. Heck, I only worked out Monday through Saturday for about 3-4 hours at a time, so shame on anyone to tell me I wasn’t working out hard and long like the guys in the magazines. I had good intentions, but I was misinformed and lacked guidance.
Eventually, I joined the Marines and the fitness bug re-emerged and bit me harder than ever. Over time, I found myself as the “go to guy” for fitness information and training by my peers, and by then I had read up more and become more knowledgeable.
It was around that time period in my life that I had decided what I wanted to spend my life doing, and that was to – help people work out safely and help them get started on the right track.
In doing so, I would help them prevent wasting time through trial and error, getting injured and even falling prey to eating disorders like I did.
