Live Your Adventure

After years as a competitive wrestler I needed an outlet for my energy so I turned to bodybuilding. Fast forward a few misguided years in my fitness journey(my meat head years) to age 23, my body was beaten up and  run down from all the years of heavy lifting . That summer I needed a physical education elective class for college, due to the lack of other options I signed up for intro to yoga. Yoga humbled the 230 pound block of muscle that I had become. This class gave me a lot of in site to what being "fit" means. Though introspection I realized that the bodybuilding lifestyle I was living wasn't healthy and decide to add running into my regiment in conjunction with my yoga practice. 

In 2011 I ran Chicago Marathon. My new lean, mobil body gave me more energy that I had in years. My weekends no longer revolved around my gym and feeding times but now of adventures. Every chance I had I was headed off to the mountains biking, hiking, backpacking and adventuring. I view life as one grand adventure. Limitations such as bad back, bad knees, overweight, lack of funds are a few things that he sees as small bumps in the road to following your dream adventure. Helping individuals gain mental and physical strength to take on adventures no matter how grand is my life's purpose. When individuals are told they should give up the activities they enjoy I say "let's find a way" to help them overcome their limitations. 

Steven takes on his biggest adventures with the Muhammad Ali mantra of "Im going to show you how great I am."
