I originally started working out to get back into shape for Hockey season in High school. I immediately fell in love with fitness and fast forward 8 years I just finally stepping foot on stage. I competed at my first show in April where I won gold at the Atlantic Classic Championships in my Men’s physique division. I was hooked after my first show and stepped back on stage two months later and won my Men’s physique class again at the Flex Lewis Canadian Classic. I also did a cross over into Classic physique and got bronze. These two shows have been a huge inspiration to me and I plan on competing for years to come and hopefully earn my pro card in Men’s physique. My next show is the pro qualifier in Toronto this upcoming October. Although I am training for shows now, my love for the gym has not changed. There is no better feeling than stepping foot in the gym, regardless of what muscle group I am training, and pushing myself to the limit.
After I began working out I knew that I wanted to do something with my life that incorporated fitness in some way. For this reason, I took my Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology and am currently waiting to start my degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. I am so thankful that the path I chose to follow with my education allows me to constantly learn more about fitness and health. When it comes to my living situation, I currently live in Fredericton, New Brunswick and you can follow me on Instagram @dpelkey_ or contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
