Pasquale’s Early Life

Pasquale Brocco was born in 1985, calling Arizona his home ever since. Throughout his time in high school, he was always the biggest kid. As a result of this, Pasquale began to suffer from bullying.

During this period, those around him called him names such as ‘Fat Pat’.  This had a negative impact on his life, and as a result, Pasquale was left with low self-esteem.

However, during his high school years, Pasquale began to take advantage of his large frame – starting to play American football. This was a sport in which he showed great potential. Because of this, he was offered a scholarship by the time he left high school.

Pasquale continued to play American football when he started college. But then one day, things took a turn for the worse. Pasquale suffered a serious knee injury which left him sidelined for months. As a result, he was forced to say goodbye to his days on the field.

Becoming a Bodyguard

Shortly after Pasquale suffered his injury, he met a nightclub owner who offered him a job working as a bodyguard. Pasquale jumped at the opportunity, thinking that this would be a suitable career option for him.

However, upon starting his new job, Pasquale began to make poor lifestyle choices in terms of his eating habits. During this period, Pasquale overindulged on unhealthy foods on a regular basis. Because of this, he soon started to pile on the pounds.

At this point, Pasquale wasn’t aware of the damage he was doing to his body. He carried on gaining weight, having a blatant disregard for his personal health. But during this time, he thought that getting bigger was the right thing to do while working as a bodyguard.

But one day, things all began to change. Pasquale lost a bet with a celebrity he was working for at the time, meaning he had to perform 50 push ups. Pasquale tried, but he couldn’t even do one. It was at this point, he was given a reality check.

Difficult Times

Pasquale was left deeply embarrassed by his failure to perform even one push up. He felt ashamed about not being able to lift his own body weight. Because of this, his self-confidence hit an all time low.

However, it wasn’t until he went to see a doctor, that Pasquale was made fully aware of just how much weight he had gained. At this point, Pasquale tipped the scales at a massive 605 lbs.

The doctors informed Pasquale that if he carried on the way he was, that health complications could lead to an early death. This had a negative impact on Pasquale, and his life soon started to commence on a downward spiral.

From this point, Pasquale began to suffer from depression, turning to food as a way to cope with this. But one day, Pasquale realized upon looking in the mirror, that he needed to change his ways.

Weight Loss Journey

Pasquale became determined to lose a substantial amount of weight. He realized that it was now or never. It was at this point, he set out to make a change in his life. Pasquale then raided his kitchen to get rid of all the unhealthy foods that he had. He wanted a fresh start, and now was his chance to achieve just that.

From this point, Pasquale decided that the best way for him to lose weight was to start walking everywhere. His nearest grocery store was 1.5 miles away, but he walked there and back every time he wanted to eat. Because of this, he walked up to 6 miles a day.

Pasquale knew this would benefit him, so he kept pushing forward to kick his weight loss journey into overdrive. After just 60 days, Pasquale was able to lose an incredible 100 lbs – proving his hard work and determination to reach his fitness goals.

However, he was still at 53% body fat. Because of this, Pasquale knew he still had a long way to go. It was at this point, Pasquale made the decision to join a gym to move onto the next stage in his weight loss transformation.

Where Is He Now?

After putting in several months of hard work training in the gym, Pasquale was eventually able to lose over half of his body weight. This was an incredible achievement for Pasquale, proving to himself and others that he was capable of making a change in his life.

Eventually, Pasquale began sharing his story with others online. As a result, he became an internet sensation because of the transformation that he had made. After achieving great things in his weight loss journey, Pasquale now hopes to inspire others to achieve things they never thought they could, stating:

“I’m a man on a mission to inspire others around the world. Anything you want to achieve in this world is possible with hard work and dedication. It doesn’t matter if it’s 5 lbs, 20 lbs, or 300 lbs you need to lose. You are capable to do anything you set your mind to”.

After reaching his fitness goals, Pasquale wanted to move to the next level in his fitness career. Eventually, he became a sponsored athlete, allowing him to keep moving on with his life in a positive way.

When Pasquale first started off his weight loss journey, walking was his main form of exercise. However, he then made the decision to join a gym. From then on, he never looked back.

His workouts consist of heavy lifts with low repetitions, using this method of training to continually build lean muscle mass. One of Pasquale’s workouts looks something like this:

I don’t think this is you I don’t see any pictures of before any faces of you side by side with your before pictures after pictures videos the one you have your phone is hiding your face it does look nothing like you and I’m sorry I don’t think of 600-lb man can turn into that you have saggy skin you got to get surgery that’s not right it’s does not make sense I think this is bogus

Ive been following him for a while, this is definitely him. He had alot of loose skin but got surgery to get rid of it. (still has the scars) I don’t see the point in you calling the man out over a positive change?

You can clearly see the scars from where he got the skin removed. Regardless, its a good story and everything mentioned that he did would absolutely work if someone stuck to it.

Pat was a customer of mine at a local supplement shop. He’s the real deal and I see him killing it still at my gym. He’s dedicated to this day to his transformation. Clarissa he’s not bogus one bit. I know some people have every excuse under the sun. Pat is a true story of dedication and determination.
