Powerlifting Ambassador: Mikey

"My fitness journey has been quite interesting. Growing up I mentally struggled with my physique because I was skinny and short. No matter how much I ate, even with my love for fast food, I had a hard time gaining weight. Looking back at my childhood, I would compare myself to others. I thought to myself.."I wish I was taller so I can be better at this sport" or "I wish I didn't look so skinny compared to my friends". Because of my size and weight I felt like I had to prove to others, so I always dreamed big with big goals.   I started playing sports from a young age. I played basketball and golf competitively but it...

“My journey into fitness began because I hated my body in my late teens. I was overweight, and I put myself through many unhealthy diets trying to get skinny. In 2011, I decided to become certified as a personal trainer so that I could learn about weightlifting and healthier ways to live. It wasn’t until 2015, though, that I found powerlifting. After competing in my first meet after just three months of training, I was hooked. I fell in love with being strong, and I started working out because I LOVED my body, not because I hated it. Powerlifting not only made me physically stronger, but it also made me mentally and emotionally stronger.   In addition to being a...

Strongman Athlete: Jose Baez Professional Amateur  Strongman “My fitness journey began as an attempt to rehab myself after a nice college football career came to a close. I played on the offensive line, and since I was done playing, I didn’t see the need to stay as big as I was, so I tried everything I could to lose the extra weight I had packed on. It was about 6 months in that I realized that lifting really heavy was a lot more fun than being smaller. Over the next 4 years I did nothing but work on my strength and cardio, which ultimately lead me to find strongman and powerlifting. I relate to KFKF’s mission because I simply don’t...

“My path to finding powerlifting was far from linear, to say the least. Honestly, my life in the fitness world has been all over the spectrum, going from one extreme to another. It all started when I was a sophomore in high school. I wanted to lose a little weight, tone up a bit, you know, the usual goals for the aspiring beginner. But, what was a little goal turned into an unfortunate few years of mental and physical struggle.   It was like a flip of a switch. I didn't know how or why it started, and even to this day, I still don’t. I developed a body dysmorphia issue and was quickly consumed by a world of anorexic...

"Everyone has their own perception of what an athlete should look like. I want to break the norm because I believe an athlete comes in all shapes and sizes. To me, an athlete is a person who is constantly challenging themselves. Being a female athlete that weighs 200+ is something that is easily looked upon as lazy, unhealthy and the complete opposite of what an “athlete” should be and this is the exact stereotype that I am working to break.   As a competitive athlete, my main goals are speed and strength, therefore, I eat and train to perform at my best. Food shouldn’t be feared, but instead should be used as a tool for you to fuel your body...

“Growing up I was always bigger than everyone around me. First it was height. And then it was the weight. I was never comfortable in my own skin, and I was just never really able to hide or blend in a crowd of people. For many years I would try outlandish ways to make myself look skinnier and smaller. I would try to slouch, starve myself, do hours of cardio, take diet pills, and even wore oversized clothes so you couldn't really tell my size.  In the past year I learned to accept who I am! Powerlifting has helped me so much with this and I can truly say it has saved me. KFKF has also provided so many opportunities...

"I’ve always had a passion for sports and being fit. After becoming a dad of two beautiful kids, my passion for fitness fell off track. Video games became my new sport, playing endless hours of games and eating all gamer snacks (Doritos, Red Bull, and Taco Bell).  Not long after I realized how far I fell off the path, and so began to get back in the gym. My first powerlifting competition gave me a little taste of the journey that was ahead.    The dedication to training made the athlete I am today. Strength training takes patience and the scars you earn from it is well worth it. Once it’s time to deliver on platform you know all that...

"I fell in love with taekwondo ever since I started practicing it in elementary school. I have trained in taekwondo for about 15 years. Learning all the forms and coming up with different kick combinations during a sparring match was probably the greatest part about taekwondo for me. I also fell in love with running Spartan Races because it’s always fun seeing new obstacles and trying to complete them.   Taekwondo has taught me to be able to control yourself physically and mentally, which always plays into my everyday life when I'm dealing with something personal that comes up. It has especially helped when I run Spartan Races since I have to make sure I can make it to the end and...

“After years of being unhealthy, I decided I needed to make change. I found powerlifting on YouTube (Meg Squats, Silent Mike, and Barbell Brigade), a switch flipped on in my inspiration. Since then powerlifting has been a big part of my life. I went from 260 lbs. to 195 lbs. and have never felt better or stronger. Being on the platform gives me a true sense of pride and accomplishment. 🍫   Going from being the fat kid to being kinda fit, I instantly resonated with the brand on a deeply personal level. KFKF is something that anyone can connect with and something to believe in. The team is so diverse that they can inspire and motivate almost anyone that...

"I was really into fitness back in high school. After I left for college my diet and health started going downhill. My diet was very poor and I had a lot of health issues. There were many days where I did not want to get out of bed. I just felt terrible, depressed, and exhausted.  After becoming a brand ambassador for Kinda Fit Kinda Fat, I felt like I had a purpose. I knew I wanted to get in shape and be fit. Especially seeing the incredible team behind the brand, it inspired me to take myself to the next level. Wearing this shirt makes me feel like I can do anything. It feels like wearing an invincible armor and...
