Musclemania® Classic Pro Michael Lee Fitness reflects on his 9 year transformation. The 5'10", 210 lbs., 41 year old explains, "I started my fitness journey after the passing of my Dad. It shouldn’t take the death of a loved one to inspire someone to get fit, but that’s what it took for me. It was a wake up call."

"I joined the gym for the first time in my life, at age 33. I knew that my life would change forever. I started working out without any knowledge of how to loose weight, workouts to do or foods to eat. But I was passionate enough to figure it out."

"I used some simple principles to change my body like tracking my food intake, lifting weights at least 5 x week, eating a high protein diet, avoiding eating a lot of sugar, and cycling my carb intake every day."

"By keeping my approach simple, I’ve built a body that nearly anyone else can build. What other fitness principles do you follow?"
