How and when did you start training?

When I was a kid my older brother had a subscription to Men’s Fitness. I remember looking through the magazines and knowing from a young age I wanted to start working out. My first job as a college freshman I worked as a lifeguard at the YMCA. I took the job mainly because it came with a free gym membership so I could start working out. I was instantly hooked, and haven’t stopped since.
