First Show/Most Recent Competition:

"July 2018 in Las Vegas - USA Championship was my first national level show. I competed in men’s physique and placed 5th in my class. Sadly, I did not go pro but that placing qualified me to compete again at the USA championship in 2019. March 2018 at the NPC Bob Cicherillo Championships I too first in class and first over all in Men’s Physique"

Motivation:

“I’ve always been an athlete and have always been very competitive. After I made the decision to focus on school and drop football I found that I still wanted to challenge myself somehow, so the gym was the place to do that. At first, it was just to get a good sweat in and a nice pump. It wasn’t until my coach, who was a competitor at the time, introduced me to bodybuilding and the different areas within bodybuilding that I actually started working out the correct way and pushing myself.”

When I am not competeing, I am...

“Pushing myself in the gym and outside the gym with my diet and lifestyle. I just graduated with honors in December. Before that, when I wasn’t in the gym, I was studying, working hard and using my competitive edge to stay on top of my grades; getting below a B was not an option for me. I also worked full time as a customer service manager at Walmart to make ends meet. I also love to entertain, and singing is my way of doing that.”

What’s Next:

“The next competitions I have planned for this year are The Phil Heath Classic in Dallas, TX (Local National Qualifiers) where I will be trying out Classic Physique for the first time. Then the Junior USA’s (Nationals) in SC, and depending on how Junior USA’s go and if I have the funds, the USA Championship in Vegas."

Next Goal:

“My goal for this year is to get sponsored, go pro and start competing on a pro level. I want to be able to be an inspiration to people to show that hard work pays off no matter what you do.”

Favorite Excercise:

“My favorite workouts to do are back workouts and most recently leg workouts.”

Advice for those new to the sport:

“My advice for those that are new to the sport would be to never let up, follow your own clock, and throw out all excuses. Everyone grows and improves at different rates. Do not let how the person next to you looks bring you down or discourage you from continuing your journey. It takes time and sweat to reach the physique you want and no matter what people say, there are no shortcuts. If you don’t put in the work, you will not see results. I would also advise to do your research and find good guidance, like a coach/trainer, someone that knows what they are doing.”

Motivation:

“In 2014 I was at the top of my game and had just been asked to compete for OSU's powerlifting team...then it all changed. My back popped and in a matter of minutes, I went from walking to crawling. It would be three years before I could have my back operated on. During that time, I lost myself. I fell into a life of depression, drinking, and ultimately pushed God out of my life. I felt as if God had taken everything from me. Then I lost one of my best friends to a drowning accident. At his funeral, I was sitting there, and they were reading through his journal. Some of the entries that he had written were some of the most amazing things I've ever heard of my life. No one knew that he was a poet. Through him, I gained back my relationship with God. Jake Lewis was more ahead of his time than anybody that I had ever known. This year I headed back to the World Championships one more time, and I dedicated it to him. Jake saved my life and hope to show God to those around me just like him. I won this for you, Jake! Thank you for saving me.”

When I am not competeing, I am...

“I’m a certified surgical technologist and specialize in orthopedic surgeries. I enjoy hunting and outdoorsman activities, spending time with my dog Ace, and with friends and family.”

What’s Next:

“The next competitions I have planned for this year are The Phil Heath Classic in Dallas, TX (Local National Qualifiers) where I will be trying out Classic Physique for the first time. Then the Junior USA’s (Nationals) in SC, and depending on how Junior USA’s go and if I have the funds, the USA Championship in Vegas."

Next Goal:

“My next goal is to focus on others. I’ve done all I want to do career wise. I want to spend time leading others to Christ like my late friend Jake. I also want to spend time training people who have never lifted before, or are just looking to take it to the next level! My drive now is to see others succeed their physical goals!”

Favorite Excercise:

“It used to be deadlift before my back injury and surgery. I could deadlift 515 lbs while weighing 165 lbs.”

Advice for those new to the sport:

“Learn to put FORM before WEIGHT. The weight will come with proper form.”
