Learn More About Yourself by Exploring the Potential of Your Body

"Over the years of studying exercise & nutritional sciences to optimize my bodybuilding efforts, I’ve appreciated the internal transformation, development of discipline, & character building even more so than the external transformation. Although your initial motivation may stem from external dissatisfaction, one of the most amazing wins that comes from improving your health & fitness, is seeing your self-confidence and mental resilience grow and strength as your body does. Although my primary interest has stemmed from “Bodybuilding”, my aim here at the School of Gainz is to continue to grow in all aspects in life, learn about all topics that can improve our health & well being, and share that with this wonderful community of students.  I will continue to be a student, constantly seeking to learn more, while sharing that thirst for knowledge with you all".
