There was a time in my life where I became content with being the guy that got older and packed the pounds on. I even convinced myself that being bigger than I ever have been meant that it was just “eating well and living well.” After rupturing the same achilles tendon twice I believed that I would be better off staying fat because being active was not benefiting me at all. My injury and loss of a loved one sped up my downward spiral. Then one day, during rehab, it clicked. I decided at that moment that I was going to completely rehabilitate myself. I committed to become fit again. I consulted and researched and came up with the best formula that worked for me. I knew that my process would begin slowly and I needed to stay focused. I’m proud to say that I have made a dramatic change and I’m still pushing myself. I have been told by others that I am now an inspiration to them. People see me out and public and say “#gymLife.” I am more passionate about fitness than I have every been and most recently was featured on Instagram by an awesome fitness community (@freakyfit_). I look in the mirror and I’m proud of my transformation and excited about making even more progress!
