Fitness Philosophy

Fitness requires a lot of hard work and dedication. Despite the sacrifices, a fit physique is well worth the struggle; to be healthy is to improve all other aspects of one’s life.

Many people do not realize you do not have to center your life around the gym to obtain these benefits; even a moderate approach toward fitness will not only yield obvious physical benefits, but the very pursuit of fitness allows one to obtain non-obvious positive attributes (e.g. resilience, patience, mental mastery, determination, etc.).

Background

Hi, my name is Tommy Tran. When I was younger I struggled with my weight. Although I wrestled throughout high school, my otherwise sedentary lifestyle and poor dietary choices caused me to become overweight. Eventually, my unhealthy lifestyle began to take a toll on me. It was at the point that my lack of physical health began to take a mental as well as an emotional toll on me that I knew I had to make some changes. I began weightlifting and began switching out my unhealthy meals with more wholesome alternatives. Before long, I began to see significant physical, mental, and emotional improvements, which motivated me to keep going. Now fitness and nutrition are my passions.
