Most who know me see the large tattooed rough on the outside soft on the inside friend, father, husband and all around good guy. But not as many know my struggles with mental health and physical issues from my Military service. After too many years of being medicated, therapy and having 5 surgeries in the last 4 years it has taking a toll on my body. I have been able to make lifestyle changes that have helped me detox off the medication and find ways to calm an always chaotic mind.
Now with the help of Continue Mission and Bootcamp with Jess I am finally trying to tackle one of my hardest issues, I got fat. This might not seem like it should be viewed as an issue, but for me the fact of putting on so much weight and being out of shape has felt like I was drowning. Going from a very fit and muscular guy serving my country proudly in the Marine Corps. To feeling like I don’t know who I was looking at in the mirror, has been hard and even harder to admit feeling ashamed and embarrassed.
Last week was my first week training with Jess and he kicked my ass, in a very good way. His knowledge, drive and motivation have been amazing. Making me not only feel comfortable and welcome in his facility, but making me want to come back. Best of all Jess with Bootcamp with Jess will help all disabled Veterans and all those who are suffering with depression and PTSD for free, just by being registered with Continue Mission.Give us 6-weeks, we will change your life!
