About the Author
I started working out back in 1990 at the age of 12 years old. That year I asked my parents if they would get me a weight set for Christmas so that I could workout and get big. I can still remember how excited I was Christmas morning when I woke up and saw this HUGE box under the Christmas tree. After ripping through all the fancy wrapping paper and colored bows there was a York 2001 home gym machine and a York barbell and dumbbell set. We set it up that very day and I did my first official weight training workout on Christmas day 1990. That's how I got my humble start with bodybuilding. From that point on I was hooked on bodybuilding and would workout daily with my little home gym. During high I entered my first Bodybuilding contest, The 1995 Newfoundland Provincials, I was 17 years old at the time. Since then I have competed almost every year in bodybuilding competitions. After high school I went on to do a computer studies program in College. This is where I got my interest in computers and the Internet. And in January of 1999 I created my website www.LeeHayward.com. From then on I've focused on improving it, adding more useful information, and making it better each year. Through my website I have had the opportunity to help literally thousands of aspiring bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts from all over the world with their training and nutrition programs. And over the past 10+ years www.LeeHayward.com has become one of the most popular bodybuilding and fitness sites online averaging over 100,000 visitors each month.
