I got started working out when I was 12 years old. In 1990 my dad gaveme a home gym for Christmas, it was a York 2001 machine and a York barbelland dumbbell set. From that point on I was hooked on working out. Duringhigh school I worked out consistently and I would read every bodybuildingand fitness magazine that I could get my hands on. I’d get bodybuildingand exercise books from the library. I would record every bodybuildingcontest that was on television and watch them over and over was obsessed with learning as much about bodybuilding, exercise andnutrition as I could. While in my last year of high school I enteredmy first Bodybuilding contest, The 1995 Newfoundland Provincials,I was 17 years old at the time. Since then I have competed almostevery year in bodybuilding competitions.
