“As a young boy, I had severe struggles with my weight. I was fat, out of shape, and did not have a single bit of confidence with in myself. As a result, I was angry and hunting for a change. My dad recommended I start running and lifting weights to address my insecurities. I explored this idea and in middle and high school, and it worked for me. I played football and maintained a solid physical condition and healthy diet, which helped me gain pride and confidence. However, when college came, I began to gain weight back. It is a battle I have faced for a while now, and I am looking to end it by developing a serious routine that allows me to make ample space for exercising.”Samuel Marzullo, Student
Share your journey and why this is important to you
Health is such an important factor in our lives. From the foods we eat to the sleep we get and to the weights we lift for, everything impacts our health. As I matured, I have found that investing in a healthy lifestyle makes my life better. It’s not just my body that’s impacted: exercise has helped me to destress and work my way through negative experiences. I think more clearly and go about my day with a positive mentality.
For years now, I have been working out off and on, but since I started college, it’s been challenging. Now, I have new responsibilities, socially and academically. With that said, I am looking to make space for exercising.
How would you like to inspire others?
I hope that my drive to be fit and healthy will inspire others to do the same. With the stress of Covid and daily life, making a space in your life for those things is ideal. We can all take the necessary steps to becoming healthy. This is my journey. I believe it is all about something you really want and enjoy. I enjoy working hard and achieving the results of looking good.
