I’ve arrived!
I finally made it into the body I was meant to have.

My journey like many others was a life long battle with loosing then gaining to

As early as the age of 11 I remember watching my brother having raw eggs in a
protein shake before heading to school. I asked him why he would do this.. at
the time he was on the wrestling team in high school. From that day I was

life is now what I’ve wanted for myself all along. Going to the gym is like
taking a shower. I enjoy being there and it’s a necessity to starting my day

Life is so much better when you live it to your full potential.

My favorite workout is shoulders bicep and triceps.
