In the last few months, I’ve made the start on a new journey for myself. I’ve decided to become a certified Nutrition Coach and certified Personal Trainer.
The idea was lit for me by my former fitness coach, Jason, who runs a large online fitness group situation, and has taught me all of the fundamentals of body recomposition, strength, and nutrition. He and I parted ways as coach/client back at the start of this year, but I don’t think our connection is broken.

Coincidentally, I’ve also given up alcohol, remain smoke free, and am making deep progress with my mental health as well.
Stay tuned. Daddy’s turning a new page, it seems.
