My journey began in college when I was doing the typical day to day college student thing. I no longer had high school sports so I decided to take up the gym, began lifting and running 4-5 days a week with not much of an idea what I was doing. Along with college comes alcohol so I was drinking every weekend because that’s what everyone else was doing. Drinking HARD 2-3 days every week but was able to stay in decent shape because I was young. Hangovers weren’t a thing so I was feeling great and living the college dream!
After graduating college, I honestly had no idea what I was doing… No consistency in the gym while still following the routine of drinking hard on the weekends. Hangovers started to become a real thing and I became WORTHLESS multiple days per week because of it. This put me in a dark place.
From extreme lack of confidence, lack of self worth, and depression — I simply hated who I was. Thankfully I made a change and finally started putting myself and health first. What saved me is that I finally committed to myself by beginning to follow a structured training and nutrition plan. After just a few months I began to see some serious results. This is where my passion for fitness really grew. I am now stronger, leaner, and feel better than I ever have.
These struggles shaped me. I have now found this amazing balance of life, health, and fitness. I still get to enjoy all my favorite foods and Busch Light while maintaining or making progress and having a healthier relationship with it.
I now see many individuals experiencing the exact same dilemma - working during the week and living for the weekend. Unhappy, overweight, and oblivious to how their daily habits and weekly routines are sabotaging their health and happiness.
Today, I’m the creator of the Fit Party, which is a fitness community that helps others find their perfect balance of health, life, and fitness. It’s built to be a fun, valuable experience for members including structured nutrition & training coaching, a Facebook accountability group, and all the resources necessary to help them find their balance.
