Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible.

I am a 46 year old YOUNG Grandpa.
We do not stop playing because we grow old... we grow old because we stop playing.
Creating videos using Gravity Boots won me a chance to appear in a LionsGate, Grindstone w/ MovieSet.com MMA movie Beatdown.
Inspired by my experience I was compelled to write my experimental story, The Story and Struggles of PAPA BEAR:

I have been able to Combine my Passion for Bodybuilding, Weight Training, Boxing, and Mixed Martial Arts, using my love for writing to post my Inspiring and encouraging stories, videos, and pictures through this Internet that I never thought I would do so much on.
If you would have told me a few years ago that I would be doing all this on the Internet, I would have literally laughed... I actually would say, the Internet is a waste of my time! Boy, I see now how blind and wrong I really was.
Life is full of valuable lessons... if we open our hearts to see them ♥

STRENGTH DOES NOT COME FROM WINNING. YOUR STRUGGLES DEVELOP YOUR STRENGTH. WHEN YOU OVERCOME HARDSHIPS, THAT IS STRENGTH!!!

Excellence is not a destination... it is a continuous Journey that never ends

...Its Your Decision.

I have also enjoyed a lifetime of health and fitness. I started as a young teen, I was a solid kid, with a little bit of chunk...lol. I love to workout, with weight training, boxing & mixed martial arts & have never lost my interest! Over the years it has evolved in an healthy habit/addiction. Like when you just gotta have that cup of coffee/green tea.

I have been able to Combine my Passion for Bodybuilding, Weight Training, Boxing, and Mixed Martial Arts, using my love for writing to post my Inspiring and encouraging stories, videos, and pictures through this Internet that I never thought I would do so much on. After being laid off from New Construction Plumbing in 2007, struggling to find work. Going through physical set backs from massive hernia surgery. My Father passed away. Finding work only to have my employers checks bounce with Thousands of dollars of NSF causing a damaging rippled effect on our finances... in which lead us to losing our home in 2007 as well. I also became a Grandpa, and almost lost my Daughter, due to complications from her pregnancy, retaining fluid in and around her lungs. I started looking for work on the Internet. I actually started liking the Internet... and started earnestly praying for something that I could get Involved with on the Internet, like a hobby. That is when I came across the web site Bodybuilding.com. I had entered my first Transformation Challenge through BB.com in 2008. And watching the variety of workout videos on there web site sparked and Ignited an old burnt out flame that was buried deep in my heart.That had slowly faded away... but was never forgotten. I had a dream to pursue a career in both the Movie, and Health and Fitness Industries. I remembered how I used to create fun videos with my friends when I was a young teen, using an old 8mm silent movie camera. I would later take my film and bring it to a local K-Mart where I used my hard earned paper route money to get it developed. You know it took several days before it was ready! lol. We would later watch it on an old reel to reel that my parents had, and it even had one of those old role and pop up screens as well. Well let me tell you... Bodybuilding.com has been an answer to my prayers.

I Love Being Challenged... To Me It Represents Opportunity. It does not matter either way to win or lose. It was, is, and always has been the Opportunity to do something Good for yourself. Your well being. The Health and Fitness Benefits of looking and feeling good Alone are PRICELESS to me... and should be for Anyone.

The Value Of A Man Resides In What He Gives... And Not In What He Is Capable Of Receiving. In Life There Are Good And Bad Challenges, But Challenges Are What Makes Life Interesting... Overcoming Them Is What Makes Life Meaningful. To Get Through The Hardest Journey We Need Take Only One Step At A Time...
But We Must Keep On Stepping.
My Motivation Derives from Knowing that I have Strong Support from A Loving Family and Friends that Care and Need me... Just As Much As I Need Them!!!
Health and Fitness is my lifestyle... my life long passion.
How could you not love it... How could you not???!!!
