Why You Need Goals And How To Crush Them!June 20, 2017
Many moons ago when I was working a dead end job as a barista I engorged myself with dozens of sugary and caffeinated drinks as I would saunter through my work day. Then as with most things that you overindulge in, it began to catch up with me. The previously athletic build that I once had began to develop in thickness. Unfortunately, not a good type of thickness. As I trudged through my resentful life as a coffee slave, I began to cultivate a small self loathing towards my changing body. Then, one fateful day, I was called to assist some friends with moving some of their belongings to their new house. Little did I know this is where I would fall in love with weight lifting. On that day I met my weight lifting mentor: Karl Wilson. After a funny discussion on how he got so darn jacked, we went our separate ways when all the moving had been finished. Some days later, I decided to take my first step into the weight lifting world by shooting him a text. He was gracious enough to say yes to teaching me the secrets of getting huge! That Monday I learned how to do deadlifts, proper pull-ups, and dumbbell rows. This was my first time moving iron and I was completely hooked! The feeling of getting a pump was just as addictive as Arnold said and I couldn’t get enough! From there, Karl helped me stay properly on a bodybuilding program and slowly but surely my body transformed. The more consistently I was in the gym, the more I could see a visible transformation happening to my body. My muscles expanded and the fat started to melt off my body. Later later that winter, something spectacular happened: I fell in love with my body again. That may seem narcissistic, but not everyone likes how their body looks and I had reached a place of contentment. I soon switched my training to a Power lifting program so as to increase my strength. My body continued to change and adapt to the new stresses that I forced upon it, leading me to implement one last training regimen change. Due to my mentor leaving the gym we were training at, I had to learn how to program on my own and thus studied as much information as I could in order to be as knowledgeable as possible in all things fitness. I became motivated to master all aspects of training! This is my personal story on how I got into fitness, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only right way. Do you want to achieve all that fitness has to offer? You can have a fitness professional (like myself) aid you as you sculpt the body you desire! There is one thing that you have to do on your own: be consistent, both in the gym and with your diet. I adhere to both as if my life depends on it, so, you should do the same and continue to trust the process. Train hard and eat right, my friends!
