Live life fully! This has been a motto of mine since I left South Africa to go travel and see the world almost 20 years ago. In a strange way, it is the same life philosophy that has led me to the USN Body Makeover Challenge.
Throughout my 20’s I was always looking for new excitement and experiences. My story has taken me through corporate work in London, playing rock music to an audience of 2000+ here in S.A, construction work in Iraq during the war, working on luxury cruise ships and many other adventures.
Little did I know, the greatest chapter in my story was about to find me when I was 28. I met Sharon & knew from our first date that I had met my life companion. We got married and I settled down. After we had our two boys, with all the pressures of being a new parent and building a photography business, I slowly fell into a place many of us find ourselves in. I became overweight, unhealthy and complacent in treating my body with care or respect.
Sharon and I decided to put away the thousand excuses that kept us away from feeling great about our bodies and threw ourselves into the USN Body Makeover Challenge. After all, if I wanted to live my life fully, I needed a body that was going to take the punch!
12 weeks later we achieved more than what we thought was possible! 18 months later I feel stronger, more energetic and younger than ever.
I enjoy regular short runs, walks with the family and workouts to keep me in tune with my body. I find even my creativity as a photographer is sharpened when I'm feeling good in my own skin.
Having gone through a lifestyle transformation like this has made me realize that nothing is impossible if we put our minds to it. I also accept that nothing good comes cheap, so If I want to live my life to its full potential I have to be willing to give it my all.
My biggest challenge in life will be as a leader in my family. Today, and every day that follows, I get to decide what example I set for my wife and kids.
To me, living life fully means enjoying today with no excuses, only results. I look forward to a new future in my own fitness and health.
