How Did I Get Started?
For as long as I can remember I was always pretty active and trying to find new things to do. I grew up playing competitive soccer. This is where my competitive spirit started and never left. I always loved competition and bringing out the best in other people, whether on my team or not. Soccer is a team sport and once college was over I had to figure out how the heck I was going stay active and release my competitiveness!
I joined the powerlifting team at San Jose State University my last semester there and fell in love with the competitiveness and camaraderie that came with the sport. This is where I learned my way around the weight room, with every barbell, dumbbell or machine that I used I became more confident with what I was doing.
This is when I started soaking in the knowledge and knew I wanted to share with people the beauty of fitness, exercise, strength and muscle. Part of the beauty of fitness is that no one person is the same, as long as you find a part of fitness you enjoy I say do that and do it OFTEN! You may be into Step class, Zumba , Kettlebells or Barbells what ever it is DO IT OFTEN and do not be afraid to try to new things.
