Fitness changed my life. Few things fill me with a greater sense of purpose than helping a friend like you achieve your goals and empower your life with fitness too.
I was a scrawny, shy kid with glasses, braces and no self confidence. Tired of being bullied, I asked my mom for a weight set for my 12th birthday, turned my garage into a gym and started fighting for my life like I was Rocky. If you would’ve told me that I would grow up to land on the cover of countless fitness magazines, work with many greats like Schwarzenegger and “Rocky” himself, Sylvester Stallone, and go on to star in TV and film, I wouldn’t have believed it. Fitness empowered me in ways that I embrace to this day. It’s not just about being healthy and looking good. It’s about feeling good, feeling like you have the power change things in life you don’t necessarily like. And for those things you cannot change, you can change the way you feel about them knowing you’ve done everything in your power to do so.
