I am from a small coal mining town in southern Ohio where I grew from very humble beginnings. I started lifting weights around age 14 and began dreaming of working as a trainer or doing something in the fitness industry. As I grew older I became focused on goals that some people believed to be unattainable. I wanted to own a gym, become a trainer, and a cover model.
I reached the first 2 goals by age 20. Now, at age 27, I will soon be featured in many national magazines & have shot the cover of Exercise & Health magazine. The biggest reason that my drive is greater than many people around me is because I have worked tirelessly for every ounce of my success. I worked 70-80 hours a week, 600 feet underground as a coal miner for 7 months to save enough money to move to the city and attend college. I was meant for bigger things in bigger places. I am very loyal to the people that have helped me get where I am today. I think the sky is the limit and I always keep things positive. I continue to strive to help the sport of bodybuilding; training, health and fitness grow each day.
Today, my focus is on becoming nationally recognized for my training, business, and motivational strategies. I am currently working on a few great projects. I transform people with my Unreal Results program at my Old School Gym or via internet & phone. The ONBF (Ohio Natural Bodybuilding Federation) is an organization that I created 4 years ago. I will be promoting my 10th Natural Bodybuilding event this year. I am also working with my supplement sponsor, BCS Nutrition (bodyconditioningsolutions.com), on some new products for the national market. Xango is a company that I also have had success with. The Xango product is a great alternative for medicine and is great for the body.
Editor’s Note: Since Cory forwarded the above information to you, he has become a distributor for Naturally Juic’d and other Natural Champion products (see Pro Shop for information).
In the future, I am looking forward to getting back on-stage to compete in a natural bodybuilding show. I would also enjoy doing some more photo shoots for magazines. I am passionate about success and being a role model for the new addition to my family, Alex, who just turned 1 year old.
