How Did You Get Started?

When I started 20 years ago I was a skinny boy, Just bones – no muscles. One day I saw the movie Pumping Iron and the story of Arnold & Lou. Especially the story of Lou Ferrigno gave me the motivation to start lifting weights. I trained and worked as a certified trainer in different gyms until I opened with my partner and good friend Devrim my own gym in 2007. It’s the F1 Fitness club and in October 2008 we`re featured as Bodybuilding.com’s Gym of the Month.
