Instagram post by @fabianxarnold Fabian Arnold

In the last days many of you have asked me how I looked before I went to the gym.
Because of that the time is right to tell you the story behind this.
In the left picture I was almost 17 years old and going 3-4 month to the gym. There I weight about 56 kg and was 173 cm tall.
Because I was so thin and at least 1 year younger than many in my grade, the school was not easy for me. I was also labeled as the little Fabian. Because I had good marks in the school I was additionally designated as a nerd. To change that I have tried to be the class comedian. Outside I always tried to be strong and to laugh. But at home it was very different. I don't know how often I cried at home. This was also the reason that my parents bought me a dog. Because it changes a lot in my a life, especially in my head, I will say thank you! THANK YOU very much Mum and Dad!
I shit on a lot of people and I did not care what people are talking about me because I know it's not the truth. So I decided to go to the gym to be not longer the little Fabian. Everyday I listened to the song "Alles wird gut" by Bushido. With this song I could identify myself and it still motivates me to continue.
Now I go to the gym over 4,5 years and have grown dry almost 18 kg muscle mass. Today, at the age of 21 I'm 184 cm tall and weight 76 kg.
But the most important thing I got in the gym was not only my body! Because of the numerous ours I spent alone in the gym, I had enough time to think about everything and to mature inwardly. Today I'm not interested in the people of the past and that is not to sound arrogant. It's important to select and don't to forget the 2-3 true friends, which stayed in each time by your side! If you read this you will know who I mean!
You should always stay motivated and not lose sight of your goal. You will reach good times, if only you believe in it and fight for it!
You should always make sure that you aren't alone in this world. Many others are in the same situation as you. For me it was very important to stand out from the others and reach my goals.
I hope you read the text because it was not easy for me to talk about my past.

    Thanks for sharing! It's so interesting. You truly never know what someone else is going through or has been through until they tell you. Good for you! You didn't let anyone bring you down and you made your life better! I'm currently the left photo and hoping on working to becoming what you are in the right side!

    Ohne diesen Text sieht man "nur" einen beeindruckenden Körper. Mit diesem Text und der Geschichte dahinter erkennt man eine Seele und Charakter. Bravo für den Mut ubd fie Offenheit. Es ist wichtig! Gerade in heutiger eher oberflächlicher Welt, in der ein junger Mensch fast nur "perfekte" Menschen, Blogger, Influencer sieht und nicht immer diesem Standard gerecht wird. Weiter so!

    Congratulations on staying true to your family, to who YOU are and what you wanted to become... and for not losing sight of the true friends that stayed by you during it all... it takes a strong man to be able to look inward and be able to talk about the things that were once difficult for him in his life... xo
