I’ve spent a considerable amount of time on both sides of the health fence. Mental and physical.
I grew up struggling with my health and weight and I got picked on a lot during very formidable years. My parents got divorced when I was six and I quickly turned to food in order to numb a lot of my pain, anger, and anxiety. Being overweight wrecked my self-confidence. I got bullied a lot and I had a very hard time making friends.
In high school I thinned out through some growth spurts, but by the time I was 21, I found myself seriously overweight again, divorced, and bankrupt with serious anger issues. On top of that, there really wasn’t anything I wouldn’t put in my body to numb my pain. I was at my rock bottom and I realized self-neglect was a big part of how I got there.
After a few weeks of crying on the couch and struggling to make sense of it all, I knew I wanted to become a better man. The problem was I really didn’t know where to start. I was doing terrible in college and didn’t have any real passion or direction. After some more self-exploration and finding the right support, I decided to invest in a different kind of education.
I decided to heal my mind through my body, so I got involved with martial arts and fitness, which ultimately led to the most important thing anyone can have… a growth mindset!
The big “Ah-ha” moment for me was when I began to realize that before all else, I was a biological machine. I found when I treated my machine a certain way, life was becoming a lot better in every aspect. Soon I noticed myself improving on all levels… mental, emotional, financial, and relational.
So now as a health coach and business owner, I love creating programs that help people learn to use their machines better. I have one of the best jobs in the world, and my passion is to help our culture move into an age of health. In the end, the collective health of our society is based on the health of our individuals.
We all deserve a physical education that is practical and easy to understand. After all, your body is the only vehicle you truly will ever own.
