I grew up in a large family of all boys. Our father, was very old school and taught us the drive and work ethic to push ourselves to work hard, and be the best we could at everything we started. I began training as a young teenager and looking up to my big brother and my uncle as inspirations. I spent a few years competing, and found some success, placing First in my category at the Provincial level, and top 5 at the National Level. My passion for fitness, has driven me to help provide access to everyone that shared my passion.
