Sometimes life knocks you down...sometimes it tests your will power... That is exactly what happened to me in 2007-2008. The life that took years to build came crashing down in quick spurt of events. I was knocked down but not out... I had two choices: stay down and feel petty for myself or pick myself up and come back stronger and better than ever. I chose the latter. A few short years later I was back on my feet: 40 pounds lighter, healthier, and much stronger mentally, physically, and a better person overall. Fitness helped me persevere and overcome obstacles that life threw my way. By 2014 I was ready to take my fitness journey to the next level . My first show was The 2014 Natural Universe where I placed 1st in Masters Men's Physique category. That followed by 2nd place at the 2014 Natural Olympia in Masters Men's Physique category. Standing on that podium on the biggest stage in natural bodybuilding with a medal over my neck was a surreal experience, and a validation for all the hard work and sacrifices it took over the years to get to that point. It also led to a realization on my part that fitness is where my passion is, that's where people with the same mindset hang out, and that's where I belong! This is how American Fitness Experts, a personal training and health and fitness consulting services business, started in 2014. I am excited about the opportunities it is giving me to inspire and help people live better, healthier, and happier lives.
I've always been a dreamer and chased my dreams. I believe dreamers move and shake the world we live in. Having said that, P4P seems like a perfect match: they have a dream for natural athletes and building rapidly towards realization of that dream. P4P brings together a unique group of athletes and people many of whom I got a chance to meet during my fitness journey. I am honored and proud to now be a part of this amazing group!!!
I am excited to see what future brings as I keep pressing forward...keep defying the odds and push the limits while actually doing what I love. I won't settle for anything less because this is who I am and how I want to live my life. Hopefully, my journey inspires my kids and others to become better people in some ways...
