This site is meant to be an inspiration for anyone who wants to turn their life around and become fit. Fitness is not about body-building, or cross country training, but being fit does allow you to achieve that; or any other dream you've had for yourself - if you are willing to make a commitment to yourself!
Who is Wesley (Jim) Kipp
Hi! I'm a regular guy. Or atleast I used to be. I spent the better part of my life not being fit. If you're looking at some of my pictures, you might not believe it - but it's true! Until very recently, I was unfit! It's not like I was committed to hurting my body, I just never paid attention to it. The result was poor diet, no exercise and an overall unhealthy lifestyle. But one fine day I decided to change that. I have had to work hard on it, but it was worth it. I made some mistakes and learnt certain things the hard way. But the result is for everyone to see.
Today, I'm not considered a regular guy. After reaching a certain level of fitness by being very disciplined about my diet, my workout schedule and having a deep respect for my well-being, I am participating (and sometimes winning) in power lifting meets that make me proud of myself. I currently hold the NYS record in the bench press in the 100% Raw Federation in the Masters II division. You'd think I've achieved all I ever wanted to but I continue to dream for more. I hope to one day compete in a physique contest - and I'm working towards that. After that, who knows what I will go after.
Mind you, all this with a full time job and a family. And I was 48 yrs old!
I have only been able to do all this because I - formerly a regular unfit guy - persevered with my commitment to be fit.
After being an inspiration to several of my friends, I have decided to start this website and offer advice to anyone else who wishes to make that commitment to themselves. What makes this site different is that the material is not written by someone who has been fit all his life and has no idea what challenges a regular unfit person faces. It is solid advice from a formerly unfit person, directly targetted at a soon-to-be fit person! It will try to highlight several things I had to learn the hard way. Regardless of how old you are and what level of fitness you're currently at, I hope this website benefits you.
