I am a fitness industry evangelist and NPC athlete, teaching others what to watch out for and steering them in the direction of the reputable few.
I am the father of four wonderful children.
Before I got involved with the fitness industry, I was a computer specialist. I went through a major life change when I had to endure back surgery. I gained 40 pounds during the recovery phase and decided I had to lose that weight. That situation ignited my passion for fitness. I developed a lot of knowledge about fitness and wanted to share that knowledge with others. This came to a boiling point when I got involved with a fitness group online. This got me involved in daily accountability blogging.
The first thing I noticed is how powerful social media is for helping a person get into great shape. The support network that can be formed is incredible and the people are so supportive. Now that I am applying what I’ve learned through that online support group I am seeing real results. I now have the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with other people.
My upcoming eBook will teach people with back pain and back problems how they can train with weights safely. My other eBook will discuss supplements–what works and what does not work.
On April 14, 2012 I took 3rd place in my first ever NPC bodybuilding show. I then placed 4th in the Venice Beach Memorial Day Classic 2012. I am continuing my bodybuilding career by training hard for a show in 2013. I am also blogging about bodybuilding on a regular basis.
Like so many people, I have often failed at getting back into the shape I was when I stepped on stage. This journal site is to chronicle the things I do to get back into that shape and beyond. The goal is to be in the best shape of my entire life and that’s not a goal I plan to miss.
