Why fitness?


I always trained for the army but Roelly asked me to join him, we used to have fun back in those days competing against each other.I joined the army in 1999 and as part of my basic training for that my instructors had my colleagues and I perform hundreds of push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, and running laps. Despite that, I decided on my own to incorporate weight training for the purpose of strengthening my legs for soccer (I played head division, the highest amateur division in Holland). With summer coming up, I also wanted to look good in my tank tops - "Sun's out, Guns out"- you know how it is hahaha! After I saw the great development and changes in my physique from weight training I wanted to keep refining, growing and building. Plus training with Roelly was fun, back in those days we would always compete against each other.


I used to play soccer "Dutch football" but I got injured at my ankle and could not be selected anymore. Then a friend of mine asked me to train with him and to do a competition and if I won I would get a free gym membership. We started for the fun now I am a pro and doing it professionally.
