Entering the Weights Room

In spite of his determined attitude when lifting weights, Kizzito wasn’t getting anywhere. His poor understanding of weight training and nutrition soon became a problem. As a result, he failed to progress in his first few months in the weights room.

However, that soon changed, when Kizzito began to research dieting and training methods. As well as this, he became inspired by the amazing physiques of the cover models on fitness magazines. As Kizzito says:

“I started to read many fitness magazines, and seeing those men and women on covers with amazing physiques, was inspiring. So I began to research everything about dieting and fitness training, just to take myself to the next level”.

Becoming a Fitness Model

When he’d built his fitness knowledge, Kizzito was able to make substantial progress in a matter of months – building a lean, muscular, and sculpted physique.

Thanks to his hard work and determination, it didn’t take long for Kizzito to draw the attention of those around him in the gym. They took notice of his development, wanting to know just how he was able to build a great physique in a short space of time.

More and more people were seeking advice from Kizzito as a result of his progress. They told Kizzito that he was an inspiration, which motivated him to reach his own fitness goals alongside helping others.

When he started to have a positive influence in people’s lives, Kizzito decided that he wanted to become a fitness model – moving to the next level in his fitness career. As Kizzito says: “One day someone will pick up a magazine with my picture on it and get motivated to change their life” – Kizzito Ejam
