The Early Years

T.J. is considered "one of the hottest physique models in the world",[11] but it wasn't always that way. He shares how he used fitness to overcome adversity to change his life. "When I was a kid I was a runt with coke bottle glasses, braces, and a bowl hair cut. On picture day in grammar school, they would line us up shortest to tallest and I was always at the front of the line. I couldn’t even talk to a girl let alone get a date. Actually, I did have a date for homecoming in high school. I was so excited I bought a new outfit, a corsage, and rented a limo, only to have my date call me the night of to tell me she’s going with my best friend instead. I was so upset, tired of being overlooked and being a runt, that I asked my mom for a weight set that year for my birthday and started training rigorously ever since. I turned my garage into a gym, joined wrestling, and trained like I was Rocky fighting for my life. Training became my release, my ground zero. No matter what adversity life threw at me, I knew I would always feel better and think about things in a positive light after an exhausting workout. I wasn’t sure if it was because I felt more empowered or that I was so drained I didn’t have the energy to worry anymore. Either way, working out became my therapy and I have used it ever since to cope, reset, and focus on changing my life for the better."[12]==References==
