I had always been an active guy and never had to worry about my weight too much. I moved to a tropical island called Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands for most of my 30's and the lifestyle out there was very healthy and active.

Then I moved back to the states after 8 years of tropical, healthy living and fell into the typical American lifestyle. I drove everywhere, watched lots of TV with hundreds of channels to choose from, ate the easy to get fast food, dined at all the wonderful restaurants, and replaced all that physical activity with work, kids, and the couch. I started to gain weight and would try occasionally working out at a gym or running laps at the local school, but it was never regular and the weight continued to climb.

I had remembered seeing the P90X disks stored out in our workshop when I was cleaning it out. I was determined to get my health back and to get strong. I just kept "pushing play" and taking Tony's advice to just "do your best and forget the rest". I was working out in the privacy of my own home so there was no one to judge me if I was having to do pushups on my knees, or having to stop the tape to catch my breath in order to continue. What happened over the next three months was nothing short of amazing. I started to improve in all areas, I would always try to just "do one more rep than the last time" and I went from doing pushups on my knees to doing clapping pushups. I started to feel great and the weight was melting off of me.

My wife and kids were impressed not only with the physical change I had made, but also the increased energy I had and the "upbeat" attitude that I was now displaying. They became curious as to what was going on with this "P90X thing" and started to follow me in eating healthy and working out. So we are all now working out together.

I want to pass on the passion and excitement I feel and help others like myself to achieve their fitness goals and to "Bring IT". I have started my own website and will continue to help anyone who asks for help on their fitness journey.
