How Did You Get Into Fitness And Competing?
I was always obsessed with sports, but eventually I needed a shoulder reconstruction from all the dislocations over the years racing dirt bikes. After the op, the doctor said to get into the gym to strengthen my shoulder and aid recovery. The rest is history.
How Do You Balance Your Social Life And Fitness Life?
I try and live as much as possible in the offseason – give my family the time they deserve, go on holidays, etc. So once I’m in prep, I can focus. Sundays during prep are also family/social/cheat days.
Who Do You Look Up To In The Fitness Industry?
