What Drove Me To Create Learn To Lift

I was a chubby little kid. And I paid the price for it.

Teased by kids and parents alike, I suffered from low self-esteem to be sure.

Then puberty kicked in, and so did my desire to attract the attention of the opposite sex. The self-conscious feelings I had only got worse.

At 15, I learned to lift weights, hoping to improve both my self-confidence and my chances with Chrissie Palmerson.

I joined a gym and went to work. Not knowing anything, I looked to the biggest guys in the gym to see what they were doing. They all did bench presses and arm curls, so I did bench presses and arm curls.

And I started devouring every word written in the popular muscle magazines.

Freaks Of Nature And False Hopes

I wanted desperately to be big ... RIPPED ... HUUUUGE!

What I didn't realize is just how unrealistic the men in these magazines were. I was too naive to know that what these magazines were selling was pure fantasy.

Never mind the drugs involved to get that big. These guys were genetic freaks of nature. Their volume of training … their style of training … was completely wrong for a beginner to weight training.

Ignorance Comes With A High Cost

When you’re young, your body bounces back quickly. So despite stupid training habits, I saw results. My chest and arms grew. And so did my confidence.

Looking back now, I can tell you I paid a price for all that youthful ignorance. The price came in the form of sore shoulders, temperamental knees and poor flexibility.

I don’t want that to be your child.

And that’s why That’s why I became a personal fitness coach, and for ten years, helped people of all ages and abilities learn to lift weights. I wanted to help them avoid the mistakes I made early on. Mistakes that would continue to haunt me.

And that's why I, along with my good friend Dave Smith, have created our program - Learn To Lift.

  • Lot's and lot's of crap to sift through.
  • Like piecing together a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle without a picture to work from.
