Jeremy Hargrove
Hey my name is Jeremy Hargrove and here is a little bit of my story. I am 36 years old and I have made a total lifestyle change. I have always thought of myself as being somewhat of an athlete because I played high school sports, but I was completely wrong. I looked at myself in the mirror one day and did not like what I saw, and the scale was even worse. The scale read 250 lbs. the most I have ever weighed in my life. So I made a phone call that changed my life. In 20 weeks, I lost over 80 lbs. I have competed in my first Men’s Physique competition, and plan on doing many more. It has not been easy and I have had to have help along the way, but I have done it. If I can do it, anybody can do it. This is not me bragging about myself but an illustration of what can be done. I work 2 different jobs, full time night shift and a part time day shift, and we have 6 kids, 5 of them play sports. With being limited on free time, I still found a way to achieve my goals. NO EXCUSES! If you put in the hard work and dedication all your goals can be achieved as well.
