Watch the interview with James Ellis, one of the top 3 fitness models in the past five years. He’s been on 36 magazine covers, has appeared on the Ellen show 30 times, and won the World Championship title for the WBFF. Like me, James was scrawny in high school, but had a photolot to offer. He was bullied, which caused depression and self-doubt, which in turn led to him almost failing high school. Then one day, he heard the song “Lose Yourself” by Eminem, and decided he wasn’t going to let anyone keep him from becoming the best man he could be. He started working out, got shredded beyond belief, and graduated with honors from college.

I want to influence you as good guys to aim high, and I hope my testimony will lead you to never settling for anything less in your life.

The good guy can often feel awkwardly caught in between the two extremes of meeting a good girl at a bar/club or an online dating service. While I know a few friends who have had success in both arenas, the typical good guy ideally would like to meet the girl of his dreams in his habitat. […]

For too many years, I settled for less. I lost hope. I was in my 30’s and single. I spoke negative thoughts into my life like: You’re not good enough….You’re not man enough. What girl would want to be with you? What do you have to offer? You’re too old…Your time has passed. I […]
