I have always been a very athletic person. I played a variety of sports growing up and ended up wrestling through high school. By the time I got to college and my wrestling passion was fading I looked to rugby for a couple year and loved it. Unfortunately, I got injured and that made me think about how I would continue to be active without playing sports. I put all my energy into rehab in the gym and started to fall in love with watching my body change through daily intentional actions. Over time I became more involved and started training clients and eventually found Mens Physique. I did my first competition in 2013 and won my class. It was then that I knew that this was going to be my main focus for the foreseeable future.
My source of inspiration comes from trying to see how far I can push my will power. Every time I start a prep, what keeps me going is knowing that I am willing to do more and suffer more than last time to get and achieve a better result.
My favorite EVL supplements would have to be PumpMode because I just love the feeling when it hits in the beginning of a workout. You feel the skin getting tighter and the blood rushing into the muscle. I also can't do without my Chocolate 100% Isolate Protein. I use this Isolate shake all the way through my preps without any issues. Love it!
My favorite exercises would be dumbbell shoulder laterals. This exercise targets mainly the outer head of the shoulder to give you a wider more aesthetic look. Second would be leg press. Loading a machine up with heavy weight and having the safety of being able to rack it makes training intense, but safe.
What keeps me going are the little messages I get from strangers telling me that I motivate them or that they learned something from my social media. We all have an impact on somebody you don't even know.
