Mahyar, Harry and Tony

Those three guys were the people who delivered wow factor on my firsts days at CFBC.

Harry it was the super fit guy who is always as top performer, his charisma and receptiveness make me feel safe like being at home. Btw I’m always looking for a brother and I saw him as my big brother I love how he push me hard and guide me to get better and stronger. His also the example of what kind of father I would be one day.

Tony what can is say? He is the reason I have the body I have. When I saw him working out with our t-shirt, #nossa, yes my reaction was #wtf with that guy his body is perfect what I saw that first day it was the body of my dreams.

And Mahyar he is the one. He the drives me out of mind and thanks to him I can perform better sometimes I still figuring out how to produce that Fury Momentum that makes me feel that I’m the strongest man in the world.

The most inspiring thing is this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6fhm4XX-Mw&t=0s&index=1&list=PL3ycu1HhH3z6cFyQRquSeQiiWNODlhqOD
