Transformation Tuesday with Samer
I love sharing Blast from the Past Transformation Tuesdays and love my male readers who have shared their new lifestyle changes. Here is Samer who recognised his poor lifestyle choices and has done something to change it for the better. Have a read of his story.....
How old are you and please can you share your health and fitness journey to date? I am 28 years old. I started my fitness journey February 2011 when I realized I was throwing my life away by smoking a whole pack of cigarettes a day while seating at home watching the days go by and eating fast food. I had to do something so I quit cigarettes cold turkey and joined the gym. Now this is my lifestyle and my job.
What types of foods did you used to eat as a kid and young adult? What's changed since then? I use to eat anything that wasn't healthy. I hated vegetables and anything else that was good for the body. I loved fry foods, Chinese food, pizza, bacon, fast food.
Do you play any sports or what sports do you like watching? I play volleyball, baseball, basketball and I am a bar athlete. When I was a kid I did swimming, water polo, diving, and rollerblading. What are your interests, passion and what makes you smile?
My biggest interest and passion in live is fitness. When I found fitness I feel like I found me. I'm also a father to two beautiful girls 9 and 7 and I am devoted to my children. I try to make fitness fun for them so that they can too be future healthy and fit adults.
What was the catalyst that sparked your lifestyle change?
The biggest thing that made me take on this lifestyle was probably the fact that I was becoming a horrible example for my kids. I also felt like I had no purpose in life anymore. I lived a boring and dry life. That all changed when I took on fitness.
What are some of your dreams/goals you hope to achieve over the next 12 months?
Over the next year I hope to train with some of my biggest inspirations like the guys from barstarzz and my other mentors from California. I also want to take my Personal Training career to the next level by opening my own training studio.
What tips would you like to share with my readers about your transformation?
The biggest thing to remember when it comes to transforming your life and body is that it isn't by any means easy or fast. U shouldn't rush the process. Live it and enjoy it.
