This is what happens when one man takes back his life. 3 Years ago I began the journey to transform my body and my life. In that time I've gone from a 218lb mess to a 165lb fitness addict. I want to show people that this sort of transformation is possible and I want to inspire/help them along their own journey. I think that in our modern hyper-capitalist society we are dehumanized into believing that we have no control over our situations and that this concept ties over from our political sphere to our domiciles and right down to our own body images and self worth. WELL IT'S TIME TO TAKE IT BACK! I don't want to stress judgement, we all start somewhere, but rather encouragement. You can do this, We can do this!

Prepping for a workshop on fitness and nutrition with the kids over @ New lens. Today team fitness officially becomes a non profit goal achievement program focused on the health and fitness of at-risk youth!
At 155 lbs, you’re not ripped, you’re just a skinny dude with abs. You can’t cut what you don’t have.

I can see where you’re coming from but at the root I think there’s something being missed here. I see all the reasons why it would be intimidating to enter a weight room, but, I also see a feed full of motivational slogans centered on overcoming adversity. Champions didn’t reach their heights by backing down from a challenge! If the weightroom is intimidating, then I say “Good!” Thats just a REALLY REALLY tiny hurdle to jump when compared to squatting 500lbs or breaking that plateau in Body Fat % and I see it, as long as it’s not to the extent of outright exclusion, as a good exercise in mental strength…
Why not both?!?!
