Embrace your “you”. I hear too many people say, “you watch anime, you play yugioh, you play video games, etc?! But you workout! I would’ve never known.”
I’ve never been a sports guy, I was in chess club. I was the definition of “nerd”. We grow as individuals, there is no set in stone path that our lives follow.
If you would’ve asked me when I was 14, “hey nelson, what do you wanna be when you grow up?”
I’d be giving you a completely different answer than what I am now. I absolutely hated working out. PE Class was the bane of my existence. I would’ve rather played with Pokémon cards at the time.
It’s ok to change, its evolution, that’s how us, as humans, deal with adversity.
But, you can still evolve while remaining true to yourself along the way.
I’ve never been one to shy away from my hobbies, I express them. I show them. You don’t need to be some football player or bodybuilder to attain the body you want. You only need yourself.
I came from a social awkward, low self esteem, fat, lonely, lost kid to what I am now, A Father, Personal Trainer, Motivator, Body Building Competitor, Aspiring Model, and lots more, all while remaining true to my nerd ass, goofy self. .
This is for all the nerdy kids growing up.
If I can grow, so can you.
If you wanna look like your favorite anime character, then fucking do it! My ideal body is Super Buu from Dragonball Z, and I’m gonna get it.
It all starts with one step forward. .
