I was at a fork in the road, looking down two polar opposite paths. I knew that I needed to change - to pick myself up and to turn my life around to be a better father and husband.
I know what it feels like to be on top of the world. The same week I graduated from Dartmouth College, I signed a contract to play professional baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates. My childhood dream came true, and the years of hard work that my father and I put in had finally paid off. But in a blink of an eye, it was over. After one year of living my dream, - and winning a championship in the process - a shoulder injury ended everything.
?An over decade-long nightmare ensued. I battled depression, substance abuse, apathy, and self-hatred.
?The day my wife and I found out she was pregnant, I knew that I needed to change. With the help of personal training, counseling and life coaching, I made the conscious decision to choose the best path for me, and in doing so, I learned what it takes to get back on the right track.
It starts with a self-recognized need and want for change - a motivating factor - that ultimately serves as the fuel for the transformation to start and more importantly, for the changes to last. For me, my "why", my motivation, my fuel, was - and still is - my wife and my daughter. They are the reason I get up in the morning. They are the reason I turned my life around. They are the reason I launched HOTFIT.
