What first fueled your passion for fitness?

Kickboxing first fueled my passion for fitness. I started kickboxing in 2003. I was a skinny dude and wanted to learn some self defense. Before that I figured a little muscle won’t hurt, so I started lifting weighing 165 pounds. My friend Derrick helped me get up to 185 pounds in about one and a half years from 2002 to 2003. My bench press went from 135 pound max on flat bench to 405 max x 2 on flat bench weighing 185.

What words or mantra do you live by?

“Whatever you want more will outweigh everything else.” Those are the words of my Sensei and mentor Phil Collins. (Not the singer) lol!!

If you win, what will you do with the $20,000?

I will finally open my gym when I win and take my clients out for a fun day of fitness.
