I have always liked to lift weights. I have practiced a few different sports throughout my life (soccer, boxing, etc), but, always on the side, I would complement them with weight lifting. At a younger age I was so busy doing sports that I never really had a problem with my weight. I was not the fittest, but I was also not overweight. However, once I started college, working part time, then working full time, the mixture of not being as physically active, an inadequate diet and my metabolism not working the same way as when I was on my teens, made me gain some extra weight and therefore not feeling happy about the way I looked, and also realizing that state was not healthy for me.
Five years ago I met my mentor, my brother, my boss, my coach (I call him all of those names depending on the day), or more importantly, one of the persons I consider one of my best friends today, someone I know I can count on for anything: Robert Farrow, owner of Farrow Competitive Training. Our goal at the time was to get me down to a healthier weight, with a possible target in a distant future of participating in a Men's Physique show. With a lot of patience, hard work, and following everything Rob suggested I changed my body completely. The first time he did a body assessment to see where we were starting from, I was 185-lbs at 23%-25% body fat, but I remember it only got better from there. After and assessment I would always tell Rob "well, I still suck, but not as bad as last month", but I just kept going knowing that what we were doing was working.
On December 2018 I competed on my first men's physique show with a stage weight of 198-lbs at 5% body fat, and, as an unexpected prize, I ended up top 5 in my class. Thanks to Rob not only I am way more knowledgeable about weight lifting, dieting, etc. but I also know my body and myself better. I know what I can do mentally and physically, and all because of Rob's wisdom on these topics. I know I would not be in the place I am today without Rob, and for that, I will always be grateful. I could not recommend Rob, and the Farrow Competitive Facility enough to anyone looking for advice on the matter. Whether you want to compete, lose weight, gain muscle or just simply train to relieve some stress and feel better. This is the place for you.
