Why I Chose to Be Natural
by Anthony Catanzaro

When I first began working out at the age of 15, I was so eager to build my body. I remember it was like the only thing, I loved doing. My friends would want to go out to the movies, and hang out with girls, but I just wanted to stay home and lift weights. I had an extra bedroom in my house; we had a house full of kids. My siblings were much older than me, so when I was about 15 or so, I was the only one left in my house. I turned one of the bedrooms into a gym. I knew back then that I wanted to do this with no help. I wanted to make my own mistakes, and learn only from what I would read. That way I could say, that I did it without any outside help. That's when I started to read about guys on steroids, and how they achieved such great results in a short time. I also said to myself "why do I need to take drugs to get the body that I want?" It's not a miracle drug, I would still have to workout, and I did not want to look like a freak, I wanted my body to look like a symmetrical work of art and I was determined to achieve this naturally.

I remember my years training at home and completely focusing on each muscle like a craftsman working alone. I would not even play music sometimes there would be just silence, like I was performing surgery or something. I then began to develop mind to muscle concentration, which is what most guy's lack. If you cannot focus 100% on the muscle group that you are working, then you are just "spinning your wheels", form is everything. It is balance and controls build your body as well as your mind. I remember times when I would train and then want to do it all over again, that's how eager I was am still am today! I understood even back then that to achieve anything that is hard in life, meant that you have to work twice as hard to get it.

As the years went on, I kept my promise to myself, and to this day I have no clue as to what steroids or growth hormones even look like! I achieved all of my goals and then some. I know that I owe it all to the decision I made along time ago which was to never take the easy road or cheat in life. With hard work and confidence will come "your riches!"

To this day I still meet many guys who are taking enhancement drugs, and wish that they never started. I tell them that the only enhancement I need in life is my spirit, and we all have one.

Good luck and stay natural!
