    New old fart back in the gym

    Hello everyone I am Brian, 53 year old recovering alcoholic, with 2 years sobriety, the gym was a passion of mine for many years until i got hurt in 2010, I was a concrete guy for close to 30 years and a volunteer fireman, When I hurt myself and was not able to be as active, the alcohol and binge eating got out of control, but between eating cleaner and being back in the gym I am down 90 pounds and have put back on a good amount of muscle, feeling great and have a hop in my step! I do dabble in concrete for extra cash still, but I work full time as a sobriety/ life coach at a local mens treatment facility I look forward to interacting with you all and am happy to be here!
