I have been working out for a while, typical bodybuilding type of training, and then discovered the JSA as a recommendation from a friend.

The JSA literally changed my life.  I now consider myself a strength athlete.  I have competed in strongman competitions, gotten SO much more stronger than I could have on my own, and I feel like I have discovered a life passion.

I recently got certified as a strongman trainer under Derek Poundstone to continue my goals of getting stronger, competing, and helping others reach their goals.
