Baker's Choice Highlight: Jose

"We all have goals and it's about time we focused on enjoying the journey as well." - Jose


"I came with my family from Mexico when I was 14 and I was largely out of shape. I wasn't accustomed to the lifestyle here, and my weight made it even harder for me to fit in. I decided to become more active by playing basketball and running. I lost over 75 lbs in a year. I continued that routine during my college career, but realized that I wasn't very strong when I drove to the basket. So I added weight lifting to my workout routine and became stronger with more emphasis on muscle mass. 

Throughout my weight and fitness journey, I had my fair share of struggles with fads. Whenever I would go super hard into a fad supplement or diet, the results always ended up being temporary and I realized that my self worth was decreasing. What did the trick for me was the combination of flexible dieting, some cardio and dedicated weightlifting.
