When did you first start training?
I first started training when I joined the military. Being in the military for 12 years I’ve always done PT… more so circuits and running than anything. I started gym a few years ago but it was more just rolling through the motions, I really started getting into nutrition and weight training in late 2015 with guidance from my coach, Kyle Webber at Nutrivolve.
How long have you been competing for?
I started competing in April 2016-Nov 2016, my first comp being the Clash at the Coast Physique Titles, 2017 has been a complete off year focusing on my weak points. I’ll be back on stage late 2018 for ICN.
What do you like most about competing?
The thing I like most about competing is the discipline and focus that’s required, I like to be comfortable with being uncomfortable if that makes sense. The ability to show off all the hard work is an amazing feeling.
Why do you choose to be a natural athlete?
I choose to be a natural athlete because it’s better suited for my lifestyle, I’ve never taken drugs and I rarely drink… the choice was easy to go into the natural bodybuilding scene.
What is your number one piece of advice?
Don’t lie to your coach, a good coach will know if you’ve been cheating because the body doesn’t lie. Nutrition is key.
