Working out. Ah yes... love to work out. Of the many activities that I have done before like swimming, springboard diving and soccer (when I was just a wee one :)), the one that I have always stayed close to is weight lifting. I had a boss once ask me why I liked to do this," how can you enjoy lifting weights? It just makes me hot and sweaty and sore". And I agree. It's this environment of uncomfortability that keeps me coming back. For me, nothing else (usually) causes me to be in a situation like resistance training. It is a place that I feel strangely at home... and sane! Life just seems to give you frustrations that can easily be transformed into physical exertion. Additionally, I love to think of the human body as a physical creation of motion. It's beautiful! People just were not built to sit around and be still. The human form is a great tribute to the motion of living-force, a precious quality we all possess in one way or another. Cherish it!
I have a great devotion and passion for fitness training of myself and other people. I have been involved in resistance training since high school. I have been a part of small triathlons and spring board diving. I have always been fairly athletic. Others often seek exercise advice because of this. Even though I have absolutely adored the pursuit of fitness, I often found myself falling short - never really achieving a level I so desire. Over the past couple years I have finally made some big strides in my personal fitness goals. The combination of motivating people to reach a higher potential of life through fitness while proving to myself that I can do it too is my ultimate aspiration.
Here's my profile up to now: Skinny kid, always admired built people. I was also impressed by the attitude that seemed to come with it. It also symbolizes a sort of harmony, dedication, and structure. Through high school, I weighed a whopping 140 Lbs., constantly. And it stayed pretty much like that until college. I finally had a metabolism slow down about 20 years old that boosted me to 150 Lbs. At this time I lived at my aunt and uncles house after surrendering living on my own. I found more time to work out and eat (and study). And that change really got me focusing more. Slowly over the next several years, I increased my weight while working out/going to school/working/scraping by. I read as much as I could and belonged to several gyms around town (I am a gym slut). But what made the biggest difference was when I became involved in a contest from EAS. Although most of what they taught was basic to me, I did pick up on a diet angle to physique training. And I admit now that I am still an EAS baby. I strongly support the same philosophies that EAS and the Body For Life programs advocate. It was at this time that I began to take resistance training much more seriously.
I do agree that genetics play a large role in a persons overall physique, but more importantly, what the person does with his or her physical and mental potential can be much more powerful. Its the whole package: The best shape you can get your body in, the positive attitude and mental conditioning, and this glowing like motivation that hooks the attention of even strangers. Try it!
I admit that working with photographers and modeling gives me a sense of urgency to stay in shape! And I as a personal trainer advocate the involvement of a sport, fitness contest, modeling/photography, bodybuilding, or any of hundreds of innovations to keep you on track and to establish a sense of urgency. There is something for all levels of health and fitness pursuits. Working with John was one for me for well over a year! So many changes in my life since I contacted John caused me to cancel several times! Gheesh, this guy has patience! And it was worth it. I sincerely enjoyed my time with John. He is a really great guy who makes you feel welcome and warm. Obviously talented... I discovered his work on the web through a modeling forum. I am excited to see his work professionally advance!
