Growing up I was the kid that had every desire to be an athlete but no natural skill at any one sport. I was the first to come to practice and the last to leave, but still I was never going to be an elite athlete. I had a competitive drive, heart and dedication, but thought that scoring for the team, winning the race or being the best was all that mattered.
When I headed to college, unable to compete for any sport at the collegiate level, I stopped all activity all together. Between an all-you-can-eat cafeteria, a sudden lack of exercise and weekly frat parties, my health declined greatly and my weight increased.
Soon, I was on 8 medications, wheezing from asthma symptoms when walking up stairs. I wasted almost 7 years of my life living this way. Until I woke up.
I became vegan and I started working out again.
Now I know that, in the game of health and wellness, drive, heart and dedication greatly out weigh natural born skill. Now, I am off all of my medications, free of asthma symptoms and in the best shape of my life.
And now I want to help you to do the same for yourself!
