Ron Waterman: I am 37yrs old and have been married to my wonderful wife Jody for 16yrs. We have 2 awesome boys, Justin 14 and Austin 9 both of whom were undefeated this Wrestling season.. Have to brag... I am a Minister with Team Impact www.team-impact.com and love what I do. I am also still competing in Mixed Martial Arts with Pride, IFC, and Extream Cagefighting.
WERE YOU ALWAYS STRONG?
Ron Waterman: Yes, but I began lifting weights at the age of 14 and made it part of my lifestyle. I lift with my wife an hour and a half a day, 5 days a week.
WHAT MADE YOU START LIFTING?
Ron Waterman: Sports. I was a wrestler and understood at an early age that strength will help you in many ways.
WHAT ARE YOUR STATS AND MOST IMPRESSIVE LIFTS?
Ron Waterman: I have a 500lb bench, and a 315lb military press. I do strict flat chest flies with 90lb dumbbells.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO BE THE BEST?
Ron Waterman: I have a competitive spirit, if I am going to do something I am going to give it my all, and be happy with the results.
WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN AVERAGE JOE AND A CHAMPION?
Ron Waterman: Consistancy. Never giving up, getting up when you fall and you will fall. Keeping a positive outlook on life. Being a champion on the inside is better than any medal or Trophy you will ever receive.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE YOU SEE BEGINNERS MAKE?
Ron Waterman: Expecting to be the best overnight and taking shortcuts to get there. Hard work and determination will get you to the top. If you want it bad enough and your motives are pure, nothing can stop you.
ANY FUNNY STORIES YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE?
Ron Waterman: I was a short fat kid in Grade school and decided way back then I wanted to be a bodybuilder. I wanted to look like Arnold. It always inspired me when I saw these guys. It's all it took was a vision back in 6th grade. Anyone can reach the top.
God Bless; Ron Waterman
