Tanner’s Story:

“Growing up, I was the fastest kid in my elementary school. But once Junior High rolled around, I was teased by my peers due to my small stature and my ‘man boobs’. I grew insecure and started to doubt my own worth. I slipped into depression for a long time and had overwhelming anxiety that interfered with my schooling.

I felt an escape in the power my favorite characters and stories had over me. No matter how bad things seemed to get, I could always tune out the world and get lost in a video game or comic book. But I wanted more than that, I wanted to be able to stand strong like my favorite superheroes!

So that’s when I began training, but oh boy was I out of shape. I started doing push-ups, sit-ups and air squats in my bedroom by day and shadow boxing in my bedroom by night. Now I can do things I could’ve only dreamt of doing back in junior high.

Fitness sure as hell saved my life, and now I want to help you save yours.

Change is inevitable; progress is a choice.” — TANNER C.
