Transformation Tuesday with Timothy Roberts
Still one of my most favourite Instagram fitness pages and what an inspiration he is. This Blast from the Past still blows me away - from starting up his own business to competing in fitness competitions and running marathons. Gone are the days of heavy partying and drinking alcohol. I have been following Timothy since I have been on Instagram and he is one committed young man. Thank you again Tim for sharing your life with us.
How old are you and please can you share your health and fitness journey to date?
I am 27, And 2008, I was 70lbs overweight, had just been let go from my car sales job at Ford and had no clue what to do next. I began working out and to make a long story short; overcame much struggle and was able to get into pretty great shape. I started my own fitness company, called BodiesByTim, so that I could educate the masses on how to get fit and avoid struggling as I had. I feel blessed to be as far a long in my career as I am. I continue to push myself participating in everything from Men's Physique competitions to Marathons!
What types of foods did you used to eat as a kid and young adult? What's changed since then?
Nothing has really changed. I have always been attracted to flavours that were natural and from the earth. As an adult, most of my food choices are still clean organic foods that I can prepare at home. Although, you will still catch me sneaking a pop tart here and there!
Do you play any sports or what sports do you like watching?
I love playing all sports recreationally. And run marathons yearly to get out and push my body.
What are your interests, passion and what makes you smile?
Wow! What a great question ;) my passion is promoting health and wellness to the world. What makes me smile? When someone realizes they are able to do what they once thought was impossible!
What was the catalyst that sparked your lifestyle change?
I was 22 at the time and was on vacation at the River. While partying, swimming and wreaking havoc, I really had gotten myself into awful condition. Alcohol is really bad for your body in excess. With that simple fact and knowing I was young. I had to get back into shape.
What are some of your dreams/goals you hope to achieve over the next 12 months?
I want to hopefully get my e-book launched. It has great educational tool I want to share so others succeed with fitness as I did
What tips would you like to share with my readers about your transformation?
As unreal as my transformation seems, this is what I look like after never giving up for more than 1500 days! When is your day 1?
