My government name is Wesley Showalter but most call me Wes or Show-Dub. I started training with a personal trainer at the age of 12 to help improve my performance and body composition. Training started as a means for me to try and make up for my lack of natural athletic ability but I became fascinated by the training process and the results they produced. In my teen years the weight room became my sanctuary during some difficult times because it helped relieve stress/anger and I loved being around people with a passion to get better. I wrestled and played rugby through high school and ended up playing rugby at Penn State while I got my B.S. in Kinesiology. I love using scientific training principles as well as experiences I have had to help people achieve goals and improve quality of life. I currently live in Chicago with my fiance, Nancy, and two cats. Aside from them my favorite things all rhyme: good booze, cool shoes, and fun tattoos!
