Here are some great quotes that were said:
“Whatever aspect of life – trying to get smarter, trying to get to know myself better, trying to control different addictions, are good or bad habits that I have – that is what really drew me to fitness. Its the most raw form of progression.”
“Confidence to me is knowing who you are and knowing who you are not. If you can do this, you can be as dominating and as humble to the core.”
“I lacked confidence just like anyone else... it took me about 4 months to muster up the courage to go to the gym.... and I just sort of kept quiet, learned my place, and learned everything I could about the sport of powerlifting.”
“The best way that I have dealt with everything in my life is to be honest and true.”
“Because people follow me on social media, I have a responsibility to not only put out content that I believe in but to make sure that... the people I surround myself with, the sponsorships that I have, the companies that I work with are also true to what I believe in.”
“My goal is to rise together, not apart. It is the only way we can get things done”
“When my best friend passed away... I wasn’t motivated to do anything... stopped exercising... gained a bunch of weight.... played video games all day... didn’t do my homework from school... I thought I was going to be a bum for the rest of my life and then that was when I decided to hit the weights again.... and to this day he motivates me to bring a positive light to this world every single day.”
