Every single one of our transformation stories is inspirational—and we like to think ours are too! As the founders of Hitch Fit, Diana and I have undergone transformations of our own (believe it or not, we weren’t always this chiseled and ripped!). It takes a lot of work to look like a body builder, a fitness model or a bikini model. And like many of you know, it takes a lot to go through a Hitch Fit transformation.
Which is why I am so excited to report that my very own story has been featured in Men’s Fitness online magazine! The article really nailed my story on the head and told my true transformation story—from scrawny to sculpted.
I could not be more honored to be featured in this magazine and I hope that my story inspires many of you to transform your life and get Hitch Fit!!
Read an excerpt of From Scrawny to Sculpted:
As a teenager, Micah LaCerte had a goal: He wanted to look like his favorite action movie stars. But, as an 18-year-old weighing in at 137 pounds, it wasn’t going to be easy. Nevertheless, he had the benefit of being raised by a hardworking single mom who instilled in him the passion, determination, and unbreakable faith to know that if he put his mind to something, he could overcome any obstacles.
He explains the first obstacle presented itself very early on. LaCerte says “in the first year of my training, I had no idea of what I was doing” as “I thought it was 80% training with 20% diet, [but] later on, once I became educated, it was flipped.” He adds, “I read a lot of magazines” and he describes the process as one of “self teaching.” For example, he notes he quickly learned that “you have to eat specific to not only your specific goals, but also your body type” and found that for him the best meal was 10 ounces of grilled chicken breast with a cup of brown rice and two cups of broccoli. With all of his newfound knowledge, things soon clicked and in 2005 he earned his first magazine cover appearance.
