Biggest obstacle that you've Slaughtered: Being diagnosed with Hypothyroidism! It constantly makes me tired and irritable and just want to go home after work and rest BUT there are no off days, I mentally won't allow it and always push through the mental game of "I need sleep" and turn it into "I need to train", once I'm at the gym, I never regret the choice.

Biggest obstacle that you've Slaughtered: I think for me, the biggest obstacle for me to overcome has been the ability to let go of past things; to let new opportunities and challenges be created to test my thirst and hunger for success.
The title you've earned with the most meaning:
I would have to say that earning my Masters certification in personal training and a certification as a Sports Nutrition Consultant have been the the two that stand out the most and are the most rewarding by far, because it's time I have invested in myself and for the passion I have for fitness
Why Drug Free is the way to be: The gains we make naturally stay with us long term far greater than the use of substances that alter the body and produce a quick fix if you may, to those that seek it, but in all honesty it harms the body significantly by producing side effects and other harmful things that can do severe damage .
The #1 reason you're NO JOKE:
I go all out on everything I set out to do, and give extreme dedication and focus to push and challenge myself to new heights; to create new goals to achieve and continue to better myself by being the best version of myself I can be.
Favorite Quote: The greatest success in life comes from the road less traveled
