Bodybuilding:

I have been training consistently for ten years and have found that it has helped me to be more energetic and productive in my daily routine of work and study.  It was my fortune to have met a professional bodybuilder who has educated me in proper lifting techniques and workout regimes. I enjoy pushing myself each day to achieve the greatest possible physical fitness. I am inspired by bodybuilders like Arnold Schwarzenegger who stated that:

 

“Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body”

Fishing:

When I was a young boy, my father would bring me fishing on family vacations and on occasional weekends.  This is an activity which I enjoy, not only for the thrill of the fight, but for the peacefulness of the surroundings.  I continued to fish in Florida and enjoy fishing in salt-water as much as in fresh-water.

Golf:

I was introduced to the sport of golf a few years ago, and have continued to play occasionally because it requires such precision and skill.  In my mind, I have not mastered this sport by any means but I do enjoy a good round on a sunny day.

Soccer (Football):

I began playing soccer when I was very young in a league in my home town in Canada.  I continued to play while in University both during Undergraduate and Graduate schooling for my college teams.

Swimming:

I have completed the entire course for lifeguard training in Canada, having received a Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross. I have also completed Junior and Senior resuscitation certicates (R.L.S.S.C. training), and was certified in CPR training

Film and Literature:

At night, after having done some sport, I like to sit down to a good book or film to relax from a tough day.  Some of my favorite films are The Godfather, Braveheart, and The Shawshank Redemption.  I also read quite a lot, and some of my favorite authors are Richard Preston (author of The Corbra Event, The Hot Zone and The Demon in the Freezer), Robin Cook (author of Outbreak, Toxin and Shock) and Dan Brown (author of Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code).
