People say you have to work hard to win, well in the sport of wrestling this is definitely true. I wrestled my whole life since I was 5 years old. My father got me into the sport when I was young and I am truly grateful he did today. I had a great career winning 2 W.P.I.A.L titles and placing 2nd and 6th in the state championships in Pennsylvania. I went on to wrestle at Division I Bloomsburg University. My career in wrestling ended early but I learned so much from the sport. I learned the harder you work the better you become. The more you practice the better you get. The higher caliber of competition makes you better in the long run. I also learned respect and morals from the sport that I continue to have as an adult. This is definitely the most important thing I have learned and I will pass it down to my daughter Capri. No matter what sport she chooses, she will put 100 percent effort and I will be there to push her and support her. She won’t be a wrestler; my dad probably wishes she was, but maybe our next child.
I put so much hard work into opening BRN Fitness. With the help of my family and friends my dream came true. It’s not easy now; every day is hard work still. I look back and realize it started at a young age of learning things. I love helping people achieve their goals, and when they see results I am thrilled as much as they are. I feel like I am doing my job.
So when people say hard work pays off, Believe It. Put 100 percent effort into whatever you do and never give up your dreams.
