Who I was...
I am #PerfectlyImperfect! I am always #learning and #growing. 📚 How I was able to accomplish this?
Honestly, it took alloooottt for to even to get to where I am. I’m not saying I have the best body but only trying to be the best that I am everyday.
I started my fitness journey in 2007 weighing over 350 pounds. I took a step forward, changed my mindset, and created a challenge for myself. I didn’t do it anyone but me. If you want to change something in your life whether it’s physically, mentally, career relationship etc. remember, the smallest step, towards what YOU wanna change, can be the biggest stepped you have made. #TransformYOU
Who I am...
Preston realized that being healthy isn't just about hitting the gym, it's about getting your mind and body in a place to achieve complete well being.
Preston’s experience is a reminder that with hard work and determination, anything is possible. Through his journey, Preston has discovered what it means to work on the “inner self." Preston has helped others transform their bodies and minds, no matter where they lived. He hopes his story will help others to transform their lives.
