How and when did you start training?
My father played in the NFL, so athletics and training were always a part of my life. The first time I ever went to the gym I was 10 years old. My father needed a spotter and was always fascinated with the gym, so it’s always been a part of my life.
Did you make any mistakes as a newbie?
Absolutely! And I think it is imperative to do so. Everyone wants to hire a coach, and everyone wants to run to supplements, gear, etc before they even touch a barbell. Get your ass in the gym, work hard and eat well. See what is working and what isn’t. Do your research and figure out what is best for you. If you hire a coach and take a million supplements you won't know if the coach is telling you meaningful shit or if the supps are even making a difference. Training is a science and your body is the experiment. Try new things and who gives a shit about what people have to say.
How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by constantly creating new goals for myself. I always push myself to find out what my new limits are, so I can find ways to overcome them. Never settle for what you think your best is. There is always more to unlock.
What was your low point or turning point?
My lowest point is when I lost my daughter to SIDS. I was confused, damaged, and I didn’t know what my place in the world was anymore. I soaked my pain in the bottom of a bottle and my only lifting was a fork. I let myself get to about 350 lbs. One day, I turned on youtube and I saw a shit talkin mother shut your mouth from Compton talking crazy and training like a mad man. That very next day I went to the gym and started my journey. CT Fletcher saved my life.
What is a typical daily diet for you?
All I eat is chicken, seafood (Cod, shrimp, scallops), steak, with basmati rice or green vegetables.
What is your goal(s)?
My goal is to push myself to be the best absolute version of myself that I possibly can. Any award or accomplishments that fall into place in between then is the icing on the cake.
