From Obese To On-Stage

From Obese To On-Stage

Yuri Diogenes Loses 100 Lbs And

Realizes His Bodybuilding Dream

 

One of the great things about coming to work every day at ProSource is you get to meet great people who have accomplished amazing things. One such person who has made a big impression on all of us here is Yuri Diogenes, a man who progressed from being seriously, morbidly obese to stepping on-stage as a ripped and rock-hard bodybuilder at an NPC-sponsored physique event in Texas.

 

When that spotlight hit Yuri and the crowd applauded, it represented the culmination of two long years of hard work and discipline in the gym and a total commitment to a new and healthier lifestyle. The man who had once despaired at the notion of keeping up with his 3-year-old daughter, who once regarded climbing a flight of stairs as a daunting chall...

My Story: Always have been heavy my entire childhood, many failed attempts at diet including starving myself foolishly. It wasn't until the summer of 2012 after a bad break up that i decided i wanted more. My brother, who is very big into weight lifting decided to encourage me to join him at our local gym 4-5 times a week, from then on it has been non stop progress. I managed to lose around 85-90lbs in a short time due to a low carb diet and practically living in the gym. Since I split with my ex i have transform...

My Story: I recently lost 50 pounds since August 2013. I was 275 pounds and was the heaviest I had ever been, even after being a varsity athlete all through high school. It is my senior year of college and I knew it was time to make a change. The guys I live with all live a very healthy lifestyle, and I was able to change my life. 50 pounds lighter, I am in the best shape of my life.

Time it took to complete Transformation: 11 months

My Story: I've been a big guy pretty much all my life but in Jan 2013 is when it really hit home, I was 307lbs. I couldn't believe it, wearing a size 44 pants, I was sick of what I had become. I joined Fitness 19 in April 2013 and haven't looked back since. It was one of the best decisions I'd ever made. I am currently 215lbs but I still have a long ways to go before I'm where I want to be. To me this is not a diet, it's a life change and you have to really want it.

My Story: Whether we were friends, acquaintances, family or foe, you never knew me skinny or fit. I was always quick, for my size. Flexible, for my size. And I held my weight well, but I was always unhappy. I was always struggling with my self image. After high school, my drinking began to speed up and become heavier with each passing year until I was stopped for DUI in 2010. Thankfully it was a traffic stop & nothing worse. The drinking continued, I kept gaining weight and by 2011, I weighed a large 265lb...

My Story: I grew up always being a hard gainer; I could eat anything I wanted, but as I started getting older and work was not as physical anymore, I started to gain fat. Gaining fat was new territory to me, a once hard gainer, I did not really know how to get lean. I had spent the last 14 years just eating and working out as much as possible. I finally realized I was eating too many calories compared to how many I was using. Once I changed my eating habits and with proper workouts, I was able to take my body to...

My Story: Well I have been lifting since I bought two sets of plastic weight at age 13. I lifted them until I entered high school where I played basketball, wrestling, and football. I was always cutting weight until about 1997. I was 205 lb, and ripped pretty good but a I just wasn't big enough. So I quit cutting and lifting until about 5 years ago and I weighed about 265. I started taking supplements and working out; first with dumbbells and free weights. Then I went deep training; 500 ...

My Story: All my life I played baseball but always loved working out, however I never saw results because of poor diet and lack of knowledge. A little over a year ago I was at a pool party with a bunch of people, I was shy about taking my shirt off because I was very skinny and everyone else was in shape. I built up the courage to do it and sure enough someone called me out and said I was small and out of shape. Ever since that summer I've been working out a minimum of 5 days a week, eating right, and training ha...
