As I sit here preparing to write another article. Ive begun to reflect on the past year and how I've journeyed to the point where I am now. Last August, I was searching online for a new multi vitamin, after wasting money on countless companies over the years, I some how landed upon animalpak.com I soon became drawn to the feel of the site, there was an aura about the site that felt, normal. I began reading article after article after article, watching videos and suddenly feeling like I was home. This gritty, hardworking, bare bones, mentality and work ethic that resonated here, had an all to familiar feel. I finally found a place where I belonged.

I recently had been training for the air force marathon and cutting weight with hopes of returning to the corps within the next few months. As things in my personal life began shifting things were delayed. The articles I continued to read on animalpak.com opened up this new world, powerlifting. Ive always been strong, always been big, but I never had a forum to outlet it or "showcase" my strength. I trained because I loved to do it and playing college basketball, my strength was used in a different capacity. I instantly was drawn to this sport, yet I knew not a damn thing about it. Animal, continued to show me who I am, it opened up the flood gates of my ability to continue to maximize my own personal capacity in a manner I had never seen within. With not only the forvm, the ABC'S, the athletes, and the supporters from around the world. My journey began right here and all the credit goes to animal.

The opportunity to find my personal outlet within powerlifting, has been an incredible experience. The people I've met, the support and encouragement, the knowledge base to draw from, is priceless. I could not have had the chance to unlock this inner side of me if it were not for that one day when I found THE multivitamin - Animal Pak. I thank you giving me an outlet, an opportunity to open up, to expand and become something greater. I've not only become stronger physically, but mentally and emotionally. My training in powerlifting has been able to show my two little boys, what hardwork does when you grind bleed and sweat. It's given me an opportunity to host an ABC to give back to charities. It's provided me a new found outlet of writing, that I'm now more interested in ever to write mini articles on whatever comes to my heart that day. I've been able to develop friendships with guys on here that are invaluable. Animal, you're more than just a brand. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, you guys got me started on this path to greatness and I'll show you exactly what you guys have done for me.

Awesome story bro. It often starts small like this... Someone picks up an Animal supp and they get a solid product. But that product comes with it much more than a few packs of pills... It comes with it the entire Animal brotherhood, one found here and all around the world. Animal is a supp co. sure, but as everyone knows, its much more than just a supp co. Animal is about motivation and inspiration. Its about a community of like-minded lifters. Its a way of life. Keep hammering bro.

you just made my day bro. We all get drawn to this brotherhood in a seemingly small way. But where we end up is always the same, right where we belong with each other. I was hooked with the black and white print ads, then hit the point of no return with the original workout vids. It either grabs a hold of you by the spine and draws you in or it doesn't. One thing is for sure good bros like you keeping brand alive, growing, spreading, in every part of the country is what sets us apart. Animal can be reached out and touched, held onto. Thanks for the share, wish you all the best.

Great post, my brother. I can relate personally to this sentiment.

Thanks for being a part of what we do. You're family.

Peace, G

I've seen pieces of your story through social media and how you are as a person. You are 100% the definition of what Animal is all about.
