How Did You Get Into Fitness And Competing?
Being thrown into the gym for rugby training at high school really ignited a passion for resistance training. I soon gave up on Rugby when I was 18 to focus on my gym training. After an “offseason,” I decided to diet down for summer and eventually led me to compete as a WFF junior the following year. Winning the overall athletic title qualified me to travel to South Korea and compete as a WFF junior. It may not have been the best performance outcome, but it allowed me to see the industry on a global scale. This really gave me insight as to what the possibilities are in bodybuilding, and how you’ve got to work hard to get there.
