While I no longer compete for medals or trophies, the rewards have shifted, on a more micro level, to bragging rights, but the bigger picture for me is analyzing movement patterns and communicating those ideas and philosophies in a simple way that my clients can understand and apply to help them achieve real, sustainable results. Though I thought I was going to be a professional athlete my entire life, that’s not why I’m here today.
I was a skinny kid trying to put on muscle, perform like a freak athlete, and of course do what every guy wants to be able to do, have the confidence to talk to women. I dabbled in the weight room for years, experimenting with my home gym that my dad through together from old equipment, like Arnold Schwarzenegger Gold’s Gym era type shit. I did the high school weight training class BS (a rant for another day), at home work out dvd’s, and of course the whole 3 to 6-month stint at big box gyms.
