Just had to say that one for @adriannakara after today’s event.
And the event Im speaking about was a competition put on by @ruggedelite that I was lucky enough to be in town to coach these two knuckleheads at.
Super strong showing by @seabassfischer today. But the Ric Flair Diamond ring wearin, Kiss stealin, Wheelin dealin award goes to my dude @icecreamalex who not only took home a first place finish but nearly swept first in every single event.
I believe Sebby would say Alex’s success came from the pile driving pressure of him being in the room same room as him. But I think it may of had to do with the pack of M&M’s he was eating before the finals.
Strong work gentlemen, awesome day with the boys.
I needed to be reminded of exactly how far I've come. An old friend of mine sent me the "Before" photo and I was blown away. There aren't many photos of me at my largest because I tended to avoid cameras like the plague. I wanted nothing to do with them. But occasionally a picture like this will surface and the emotional response is a great one. 🐉
It is a mixed bag of emotions. I was ignorant to how sick I was, most likely because I didn't want to see it. My normal was being maintained and I felt my version of good. Little did I know, I was making a beeline to the grave. That is until a new way of life was shown to me. 🐉
The lifestyle I discovered came about because of @crossfit . I had no idea my body was capable of anything more than sitting on a couch, playing video games all day and night munching on Cheetos. All of a sudden I was running, jumping, and moving my body in ways that were unfamiliar yet exhilarating!! I discovered the BARBELL!! 🐉
There is a 7 year difference between the photos. In that time, doctors told me I'd be dead. Jokes on them! I'm alive and thriving thanks to the lifestyle that I embraced. I have since discovered that I have just been scratching the surface of my potential. There is so much more out there for me to discover! 🐉

A lot of people ask me what keeps me motivated and I think finding motivation day in and day out can be difficult no matter what your fitness goals are. For me I’m obsessed with movement and what the human body is capable of. Everyday I learn something new about myself. My strengths, my weaknesses, my willpower and it also serves as a creative outlet. Along with those things it shows me that anything you put your mind to you can accomplish. My failures drive me to push harder and my triumphs inspire me to raise the bar. But no matter what your goals are make sure to challenge yourself and do things that bring you happiness 📽@rynosaurusflex#staydriven#LA#equinox@sickickmusic#fitness#fitnessmotivation
