Q: What got you started working out?
A: What got me into the gym was of course being a high school athlete but some rough life choices after high school lead me back to the gym. If it wasn’t for Erik [Swanson] and his dad motivating me and pushing me to be my absolute best, I probably wouldn’t be who I am today.
