My fitness story started off like many others. I played a lot of sports pretty all my life, but about 4-5 years ago, I started taking weight training seriously. I ran into trouble when I started ignoring the minor aches and pains I began experiencing.

Instead of resting and rehabbing, I made a mistake many people do: I worked through the pain. As a physical therapist, I knew better, but I loved lifting. After doing this for a few months, I reached a point where my body was just broken down.

I had Achilles tendonitis, patellar tendinitis, minor hernia, shoulder sprain, partially torn triceps tendon, and a severe wrist sprain. Eventually I couldn’t work out without pain, so, I stopped lifting. I stopped being active. I stopped caring about my diet. I was frustrated and defeated. I ate whatever I could get my hands on. Slowly but surely, I began gaining body fat. By the end of 2011, I reached a point where I couldn’t deny that I was fat. I had a reputation of being fit and active. I was ashamed of what I had become. So, I decided to get in my best-ever shape.

I wanted my transformation to be an example to others, showing them that you can make a change naturally and without extreme strategies. Mission accomplished!
