My kids.

As soon as I met my wife and had kids I not only wanted to be healthier, to spend as many years as possible with them and see them grow in to women and have kids of their own. I also wanted to be able to run around the park with them, play sports with them and set them a good example of how to live a healthy life.

It really was night and day to my outlook on life before I met my wife. Which was basically live for the day, dont worry about health and wreck my mind and body in as many ways as I can as often as possible.... dark days indeed

Carl.

My biggest motivation was to lose weight. Tipping the scales at 340 and losing my breath tying my shoes opened my eyes.

These are some amazing stories.

One of my motivations is being strong and healthy, I love lifting so the thought of doing the big 4 motivates me. Another one is everyone here at MAB, seeing everyone progressing, everyone inspiring me to work as hard as I can and guiding me along the path of iron.

EDIT:
I was always a really skinny kid and I never ate enough food.

I try to remind myself that life is fragile, and I try to understand and respect that bit of truth. I make the attempt to correct mistakes before they happen, by learning by past experiences. From starting my life with nothing but regrets, I'm making the attempt to finish things out with the feeling that in the end I will regret nothing.

I hope that this goes far beyond lifting for you guys because this comes from a damaged heart:

I've learned life can end at any moment... The hard way... Live every minute of your life to the fullest, never leave anything unfinished, give your friends/family the love and respect they deserve (fix damaged relationships and learn to forgive), and give everything your all. Regrets will eat you alive, more so than most will ever understand until its too late.

A gentle walk in the direction of the weights "room"


Since I was a kid, I've always been involved in some form of fitness activity:

7-15 y/o basic gymnastics and yoga
?? y/o badminton
10-12 y/o judo
17-> y/o Tae Kwon Do
21 -> squash
21 -> football (soccer)
...yoga, stepping, tai chi...many of the above tended to overlap at times...

...eventually found the weights and have stayed with them ever since, though other sports/fitness styles still cross; I still like to do a bit of martial arts and yoga.
