“I am here to help you achieve the body you have always desired.”

I’m Terry I’m here to help you achieve the body you want. I truly believe anyone can achieve the figure they want, with the proper guidance. Through my eBook I have been able to help thousands of people online lose weight, tone up and get in shape. My goals are continue to help people all around the world and change people’s life for the better.

I’ve been training for about a decade now, I guess you could say I am a true Gym Junkie. I’ve tried just about every fad diet, new workout program and just about every gym out there. I have also experimented with just about every GNC supplement out there, most of which left me disappointed.

Throughout the last 10 years I’ve learned so much about my body and training others. I’ve pretty much done it all when it comes to the gym; I was a personal trainer, gym assistant manager, gym personal training director, kickboxing teacher, gym owner and an author of a weight loss eBook.

How did this all start? Well here is my Story…

My Story

My friend Mike made me step foot in the gym for the first time when I was a freshman in high school. I remember thinking maybe this was a good thing for me I was so physically small and I was desperate to put on some weight. Walking down the hallways I would get shoved by the older class and girls typically overlooked me. Life was a little rough growing up, but I was determined to turn that around. The GYM saved me, physically, mentally and later in life ironically financially.

Over the course of high school I trained as much as I could. Usually I would hit the gym about 2-3 times a week with my friend Mike and a couple of my other buddies.  By the time I was a junior in high school people would actually crack jokes at my size and they actually gave me a lifting nickname “T-guns”. Things started turn around for me, not only had I gained a decent amount of muscle mass, I finally hit my growth spurt and was much more popular with the ladies.

As you can see I did make considerable gains but by no means was I close to my peak. I needed to step it up a notch and ultimately because I had hit a plateau. When I was a freshman in college I really started to do some serious research on lifting and dieting. I attended College in Arizona, where as you know it’s a desert which actually further promoted me to go to the gym because of the hot weather. I changed my workout routine from 2-3 times a week to 5 times a week. This is where I utilized a true split routine and workout out everybody part for muscle growth.

By the time I was a sophomore in college I was pretty big weighing in just shy of two hundred and thirty and standing at 6’1. But my journey wasn’t over yet, although I was much bigger I didn’t have a 6 pack and I wasn’t very defined. I needed to step it up again this time with more knowledge. I became officially certified through NASM and started to shift my workout once again incorporating cardio and really getting into serious shape. I was even so ripped at one point I had gained a modeling contract through CESD In Los Angeles

I know what you thinking, this must be it, this must be the reason I am here sharing my story with you. Actually no it was until one of my best friends phoned me when I was at college and said “Terry you look awesome in your new facebook photo, what’s your secret man? I really need to get in the gym this summer can you help me out”. Of course my answer was “yes”, wouldn’t you help one of your best friends in need?

That summer I trained my friend Ryan day in and day out. We ate together, we lifted together and most of the time we just hung out with each other. Ryan was going through a rough time in life, he had just recently broke up with his girlfriend of three years and was addicted to online gaming. He weighed in at a whopping 260 when we started training. After almost a year’s worth of training some onsite and some over the phone Ryan was an astonishing 185pounds and looked great. He is a new person as a result and enjoys life to fullest; Ryan remains one of my best friends to this day.

That’s when a light really went off in my head “Ding”, If I had changed my own life through fitness and my best friends how come I couldn’t change everyone’s? After college I instantly dove into writing my first eBook, while simultaneously training other individuals. I quickly published my eBook online and it gain popularity very quick, you can find that “here” , you can also download my free report at “here”.

What does my future hold? To continue to publish good content for all gym junkies out there in the world. To continue to distribute my eBook to as many people as possible and helping as much as I possibly can. To share funny Gym Junkie jokes on facebook. To continue to build the gym junkies brand and expand it exponentially.

My names Terry and I’m just a gym junkie like you.
