I always played sports as a kid and was always active. In my early 20’s I made a change. My weight dropped from 336 to 187 in under 2 years. Then I changed careers and began working at the gym and going back to school for Exercise Science at UNO. Julian Schmidt, a senior editor for Flex Magazine, was an early role model. He taught me a vast amount about bodybuilding and nutrition. Training under Rick and Julian has given me a wealth of knowledge I could never attain just going to school.
