John got started with me a little over a year ago with the goal of getting stronger and becoming a more well rounded athlete. As a former D1 swimmer, he had top level endurance, but never spent much time in the weight room. For years he did what many people do, stick to what they're good at and avoid what they struggle with. But John decided that even though it was going to be a rough journey, he was ready to take on a new challenge.
Getting into strength sports for the first time after age 30 is an intimidating feat for most, but John made up his mind and never looked back. In around 18 months, he has missed less than 5 training sessions and the results are undeniable. Over that time span he has added 75lbs to his squat, 50lbs to his bench press, 85lbs to his deadlift, and 25lbs to his overhead press.
John's progress is a great example of what consistency is all about and also shows what can happen when you're willing to humble yourself by trying something new.
No matter how long it took you to start or how rough the journey may look, it is NEVER TOO LATE to accomplish your goals!
