I was always a heavier kid growing up, but by the time I was 25 I was well over 250 pounds. I ended up getting food poisoning and when I went to the doctor I was surprised that they were far less concerned about my immediate illness. Instead they were much more concerned that I was pre-diabetic. I decided then and there that I needed a change in my life. Not understanding how diet and exercise work, I immersed myself in health and fitness and worked incredibly hard to get down to 150 pounds in ten months.
Since then, I have fallen in love with strength sports and have begun competing in strongman and powerlifting competitions. I feel better than I ever have in my life and it's now my passion to help others achieve THEIR fitness goals.
