From my start in weight training at 22 to my first competition at 28, I've been dedicated to bodybuilding for decades.

After multiple bodybuilding titles through the years now, at 65, I'm proud to have competed at the 2023 NGA Mr. Universe as a drug-free athlete. I've learned so much on this journey, and I owe a lot of my recent success to my friend Jimbo Collins at Gymbos Fitness Center. I'm living proof that bodybuilding and weight training is the fountain of youth! đź’Ş #BodybuildingJourney #NeverTooLate #NGAMrUniverse #DrugFreeAthlete #GymbosFitness"

As a trainer, Jim went above and beyond what I expected out of a trainer.  He attended every one of my shows even if it was out of town and even if I was the only of his clients competing.  I learned a whole new way of training that was hard and challenging, and is now a part of every one of my workouts! I can’t thank him enough for everything he has done!
