Chapter 1: Humble beginnings

I've been there... 

I get it...

I understand...

Growing up, I was always a “chubbier” kid. I loved food! I mean, I still love food, but I f*cking LOVED it (and not so much in moderation).

In Ms. Daigle’s fourth-grade class, a girl had a crush on me (I know it’s crazy to believe with that necklace and haircut). One of my friends at the time said to me, “I don’t get how this girl likes you. You’re fat.”

I instantly felt so embarrassed. My face got red, my stomach knotted, and I wanted to cry.

*INSERT* body image insecurities.

That statement crushed me.

This is a moment where I can clearly remember how shitty I felt.

Over time, I would start beating people to comments by making jokes about myself first, or just rolling with the punches when I did get made fun of.

I hated it, but I didn’t want to show them how upset it made me.

For a long time, I felt like this was an image I would have to live with.

Chapter 2: Transformation

The summer before college, I decided it was an opportunity to become someone different. To step away from that image and change mentally and physically.

I started going to a gym with my brother, where I trained my chest and back 2x a week, arms 7x a week, and legs... maybe 1x a week.

I started to see change. Muscle definition in my arms, back, and chest... it was amazing! This was when lifting became a passion. I love how it made me feel, how I looked, and what it was doing with my confidence.

I was a meathead throughout my college career, mainly focused on lifting weights and eating whatever I wanted. Nutrition-wise, I was all over the place, having fun (lots of Busch lights and McDonald’s).

Over the summer I would overly restrict myself in order to lose all the weight I gained during the school year. I repeated a cycle of losing weight and getting lean throughout summer, and then going wild in college and putting all the weight back on. This would continue after college. I never had any balance or felt in control.

With those years of constant weight gain and loss, I decided to finally get a grasp on my nutrition. I tried all the trendy diets. Whatever the hot trend was at that time, I gave it a bid - Paleo, Keto, Intermittent Fasting, Gym-Tan-Laundry, Polyjuice Potion, Calorie Counting.

Until I FINALLY figured out what works for me. I found harmony. There were moments of guilt, but I developed confidence, discipline, and autonomy.

Chapter 3: Helping others ❤️

Do you want to know what works?!

Whatever you can do consistently and sustain for the rest of your life. Building habits around:

  • Nutrition

  • Training

  • Daily Activity

  • Sleep

  • Planning

I know the goal of making a physical transformation is important, but developing ownership of your choices is what helps you maintain any progress you make. Regaining that control deeply inspired me to help others feel the same way.

There are two things that I love more than anything, helping others and fitness. Oh yeah, and my wife Shannon of course! :) 

With that being said, I hope I can share all that I have learned and experienced and help you be the biggest badass you can be. 

Ready to transform yourself?

Let's work together to achieve your fitness goals. Take action. Keep going. Never quit.


This is me, in a nutshell 🥜
