My Backstory

The Transformation – A Journey from Fat to Fit:

Twenty years ago, I found myself trapped in a body that weighed almost 300 pounds. I was at the lowest point of my life, chained to a desk job that only exacerbated my poor eating habits and sedentary lifestyle.

It was during this time that a pivotal moment of clarity struck me like a bolt of lightning. My wife was expecting, and soon I would become a father.

The realization hit me hard—how could I possibly be there for my child and support his mother when I was in such a dismal state? How could I keep up with a toddler, let alone guide him through his teenage years? Fear gripped me, for I knew that if I continued down this path, I might not even make it another 15 or 20 years.

In that moment, I made a solemn vow to myself. I swore to get in shape and be present in my son’s life well into his high school years. It was a drastic turning point for me, as I had never before struggled with weight issues during my athletic days in high school. The infamous “Freshman 15” and subsequent weight gain in my corporate life had landed me in a rough spot both physically and mentally.

With almost 300 pounds weighing me down, I knew I had a long and arduous journey ahead to reclaim my fitness and well-being. That’s when Julie, my wife, joined me on this transformative journey. She too desired to be fit and prepared for her pregnancy, and together we embarked on a new lifestyle—one that would soon shape our professions and change lives.

I dedicated myself wholeheartedly to my fitness goals, shedding almost 100 pounds and surpassing the level of fitness I had achieved as a high school athlete. Astonishingly, I not only lost weight but also gained substantial muscle mass. Through relentless determination and embracing a more active lifestyle than ever before, I felt reborn—a new man in every sense of the word.

This incredible transformation was not just physical; it permeated every aspect of my life, infusing me with confidence, strength, and a profound sense of purpose. With this newfound lease on life, Julie and I decided to channel our passion for health and fitness into a business venture. FITBODY, our now well-established brand dedicated to empowering women to transform their bodies and minds, had already been making waves in the industry.

After having spent much of the time behind the scenes in the operations of our business, a friend was inspired by my personal journey and asked if I trained men, I decided to transition fully into the fitness side of our business. I left behind my previous career in commercial photography to focus 100% on sharing my story, knowledge, and unique perspective on transforming from “fat to fit through” FITBODY coaching for men & our nutritional supplement store.

As a testament to my own transformation, I bring a deep understanding and empathy to every client I work with. I’ve been where they are—struggling with weight, lacking confidence, and feeling trapped in a body that doesn’t reflect their true potential. Through my own experience, I have discovered the power within us to rewrite our stories, to reclaim our health, and to sculpt our bodies into living testaments of resilience and determination.

What sets our business apart is not just the physical transformations we facilitate but also the leadership we bring to the fitness industry. Clients can have full faith in FITBODY because they are placing their trust in people who have walked the path before them and emerged victorious. I have not only transformed my own body… but also my mindset, my lifestyle, and my professional focus.
