Why did you decided to transform?
I started training to increase my self-confidence and improve my general health. I got into fitness when my dad got me bench press for my 16th birthday. It was time for a lifestyle change. I was ridiculously thin, I’m talking the skinniest guy in my grade in school, people always commented on how skinny I was and I hated it. I was always known as the skinny kid.
What keeps you motivated?
I can safely say that my motivation to train goes far beyond that of merely impressing people, it is derived from the feeling of having set goals and achieving them and outdoing myself in the gym. Inspire the uninspired.
How often do you work out?
5-6 days a week.

Your favorite Gym Tracks, if any?
Do you have a favorite quote?
‘I would rather do what I do and have fun than sit back hating on someone achieving something.’
Your future fitness goals?
One of my biggest future fitness goals will be to inspire the uninspired. Inspire people to chase their dreams, even if it’s the complete opposite to mine. I aim to make people understand that if you tell yourself you can do something, you can do it. I will continue to make YouTube videos, grow my social media and expand out to as many individuals possible, this Is just the beginning.
Any advice or tips for aspiring transformers?
It’s as much of a mind game as a physical one. You are battling against your body with every single rep, and in the end it’s your willpower and determination that are the ultimate deciders in whether or not you will achieve your goals, or fail and give up. Block all the negative people out your life! Because you can’t live a positive life with negative people that will hate on you and bring you down. Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, hate, drama, or negativity stop you from being the best person you can be.
