My Transformation Story:

I have always had a battle with my body from a young age.  I was diagnosed with petit mal epilepsy as a child and, at the time, doctors were recommending I stay away from most, if not all, athletic activities.  What is a kid to do?   Video games and a sedentary lifestyle became the norm to me.

By the time I hit 14 years old, I grew out of the epilepsy, but that wasn’t all that grew.  I was your typical chubby teenager.  I battled with a desire to be fit and look like the celebrities I grew up idolizing…. I wanted to look like Marky Mark.  Fad diets and an eating disorder at the age of 18 was my reality.  Like so many people, I yo-yo’d and saw my weight fluctuate.

My adult years were no different, and having disposable income, saw me joining various gyms and never getting results.  I didn’t realize that deep down, this wasn’t just an issue being unhappy with my body.  It was deeper than that, something I wouldn’t realize was an issue until later on.

Fast forward to March 2016 and the dissolution of a 15-year long relationship.  My ex broke up with me because we had grown apart.  Despite loving me, she felt we had grown to just be best friends.  She wasn’t wrong ultimately.

In January of that year, I had started going to a new gym near my office.  At 265 pounds (my heaviest), I wasn’t feeling intimidated going there.  It was a great atmosphere, the trainers on the floor were friendly, and offered advice without being judgmental or pushy. But I didn’t know much - poor training and improper eating didn’t help. Over 2 years, I only lost 10 pounds.

In March, the breakup happened and it saw me moving in with my family to figure things out.  At the same time, I started examining myself as a person and finally was able to admit who I truly was… I was a gay man.  There are a lot of reasons why I lived denying my true self, but long story short – I was miserable, and my internal struggle was part of my block.  Only once I was able to accept and love myself for who I was, was I able to start my own transformation.

I got a personal trainer and worked with her, following everything she told me to do.  I saw results, but wanted more.  She and I parted ways when she was relieved of her duties at the gym.  Since I was signed into a contract for personal training, I was assigned a new trainer.  I was hesitant – trainer A knew me.  She understood my body I thought.  I was wrong to be hesitant.  Trainer B took me to a whole new level and challenged me.  Because of him, I decided to compete in my first body building competition – thus a new “why”.

I went from 265 pounds in January 2016 to 168 pounds in October 2019 when I stepped on that stage in a skimpy pair of shorts for the entire auditorium to see.  The process drove me to change paths and close my cake decorating side hustle to focus on certifying in the fitness world.

Now more than 70 pounds lost, I have a love for fitness and most of all enjoy the reaction and feeling I get knowing I am inspiring and helping others. This newfound passion allowed me to become a certified personal trainer and nutrition coach.
