Work out with me

Start of My New Life

The summer of 2013 changed my life. No, a life changing event didn’t occur. It was more so an accumulation of all the small events that occurred. That summer was the first period in my life since I was 8 years old that I didn’t play football. Without football, a car, or a phone I was left to do nothing all summer. I couldn’t sit around all day and do nothing so I decided to put the old weight set in the basement to use. For the first time in life I was working out because I wanted to and not because a coach was telling me to. For the first time in my life I actually enjoyed working out. I slowly fell in love with it and at the moment I decided that my goal in life was to help people become better versions of themselves with exercise and fitness. The summer of 2013 is when I discovered my passion. Exercise and fitness has molded me into the person I am today and part of my goal is to try to motivate as many people as I can to better themselves. I’ve made some progress in this goal by training numerous people and even chose my major based upon this. Although I never expected that an English course would aid me in my journey, this class has taught me to think in a different way and it ha become a stepping stone on my stairway to success.
