Unknown facts: “I love and sing country music, and I’m an amateur videographer.”

Fitness start: “Initially depression after a breakup got me working out. I decided to workout to make myself feel more desirable.

I then applied this personal growth system to all other aspects of my life.”

I eat a diet high in protein.

“My diet is high in protein to build and maintain muscle. It’s not for everyone. For breakfast, I have four boiled eggs and cold brewed coffee with no sugar. For lunch, I typically eat a 10-ounce tilapia filet, three boiled eggs and two teaspoons of ranch dressing. I snack on four teaspoons of natural peanut butter. For dinner, I typically will have a 20-ounce ribeye steak.”

Physical: Weightlifting works for me.

“I am constantly learning from the religious teachings of various faiths. I trust that the universe will do what it does for one who focuses on using the tools given and not things that I don’t have.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
