Why did you start your fitness journey?
"My wife and I decided to start working on making our family bigger. I was not happy with the way I looked or felt. I needed to make a change. I chose 5 Star Nutrition because when I walked in I felt welcome and wasn’t pushed to purchase anything I didn’t want.
And I would like to include that the woman in the pics is my wife, Shelbie Brown, and she made the lifestyle change as well. Together we lost about 180 pounds. My start weight was 326 now I'm at 261. My wife's start weight was 260 now is at 145."
What is your go-to healthy meal?
"When I sit down for a healthy meal I aim for 13 ounces of grilled chicken breast with 6 ounces of jasmine rice."
What is your favorite exercise?
"Right now my favorite movement in the gym is bench press."
What advice has inspired you the most?
"I think the best advice is to stay consistent and don’t compare yourself to others."
