Meet SPIbelt Ambassador Roy
I used to be a sedentary, obese IT professional until June of 2006. That’s when friends dared me to start the 12-week weight loss challenge that changed my life. Since then, I’ve completed multiple marathons and triathlons (up to half iron), and left my IT job to become a full-time fitness professional and part-time firefighter. My wife and daughters (one adopted, one foster) provide me endless encouragement and support, and more than once have been the reason why I didn’t quit a tough challenge or race. I’m always looking for opportunities to serve and to improve myself.

Get out of my comfort zones, in sport and in my personal life.

What quote or motto keeps you motivated?
