I have been involved with sports my entire life. The one I excelled at from a young age was martial arts. I earned my black belt at the age of 14, from one of the best in the business...Grand Master Roy Kurban. By the time I was 15 I had already won state championships and achieved a national ranking.
By the time I turned 16 I had given up martial arts because I believed it wasn't the "cool" thing to do anymore. I wanted to hang out with my "so called" friends and party all the time. For the next couple of years I was in and out of trouble, drugs and alcohol, fights and depression. I was shipped off to military school later that year.
At school I was picked on, and made fun of for being different. The only thing that helped me take my mind off things was working out. I found myself doing thousands of push ups, pull-ups and crunches wishing I were bigger and stronger so that I could defend myself. After a few months being away from the drugs, alcohol and partying my body started getting back to how it was when I was in my prime doing martial arts.
Yes, it helped me physically, but it me mentally even more. I found that I had more confidence in myself...I began to believe I could achieve things again. I realized that instead of following a bunch of people who were going nowhere, I was a leader. I realized how I could lead people to a healthier lifestyle. How I could motivate people, and help them become better in every aspect of their life!
After getting out of boarding school I had the first real tragedy in my life. My best friend passed away. He was still battling his demons from drugs and alcohol. It was then that I dedicated my life to helping others conquer their challenges...to push past the fears holding them back in life. To surpass the limits people set for themselves...not just physically, but in all aspects of life. Changing your life might not be easy, but it will always be worth it!
