WARNING: It ain't pretty
Where i was
Before I was personal training coach I was a mechanic. What an ugly lifestyle I lived. I frequently drank and overworked to fill the gaping hole depression.
Where i was going
During a severe bout of depression I remember severe stomach pains resulting from being in a chronically depressed posture (pun intended). I was heading back into another cycle of self pity. I was at my heaviest.
At the pivotal point an advertisement for an at home workout and nutrition program guaranteed results, "what do i have to lose?". I bought it and followed the program. I got success! My confidence grew. Throughout the next year I played scientist and developed boardline eating and exercise disorders until I got the picture, "I have not idea what I'm doing".
I realized that education mixed with experience needed to be my backbone for personal achievements and the success of others. It's possible with the right plan. Over the years I have grown as a coach and as a strength athlete. Every success, whether it be big or small is one step closer to the ultimate goal....EMPOWERMENT!
