Jouney Through Life

My journey as a professional athlete and person in general. From fitness, working out, badminton, travel, as well as other aspects of life.

I am a 24 year old international badminton player who represents Trinidad and Tobago on the world stage. Live and train in Calgary, Canada.

Currently ranked 231 out of 1830 people in the world for men's singles. I will try at representing Trinidad at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil.

Before that my shorter term goals will be the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada. As well as the 2014 XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
Tournament hall for the 2014 Venezuela International. Duct tape badminton courts, glass ceiling, wind blowing through multiple holes in the wall. Horrible venue.

First picture is the original tournament venue for the 2014 Argentina international which unfortunately was unable to be used due to conditions. The rain caused excessive moisture in the air which made the courts extremely slippery and dangerous to play on.

The 2nd picture is the replacement venue which was a horrible place to play in. What a unique tournament expirence it was. Playing men’s singles at 8am in -1 degree weather where you could see your breath.

The view from my hotel room in Tandil, Argentina. Independence plaza as well as the government buildings and church in the background. Beautiful day.

Just a few more shots of the landscape while flying over south America. Simply beautiful and so diverse. Love it.

Flying from Peru to Argentina over the andies mountains, vast deserts, and many other beautiful landscapes. Flying over south America is beautiful and leads to great photo ops like this.

Getting in that last workout before flying out to a tournament. Have that pump going on for arms. If only they would always look that big and pumped.

KRISKO & MARIA ILIEVA - VIDIMO DOVOLNI

Searching for new music to put on my Ipod for an upcoming trip and somehow came across this song by a Bulgarian Rap musician. But it has Maria Ilieva on it and she has a song from 2010 called “I like” what a weird coincidence seeing her on this track. 

It was such a beautiful day here in Richmond. Perfect for a run by the river to even out the tan and get in some fresh air.

Everyone has to reblog this if you’ve touched the iron

pay respect to the king.

Love the motivation Arnold gives, not just for working out but for life and all goals.

the new stack of supplements; 5lbs of protein and 15lbs of weightgainer. The toughest part about being a professional badminton athlete is that the nature of my sport makes it really hard to make gains. Of course I want to male gains and better my muscles for optimal athletic performance but even that is tough when the explosive training and cardio robs you of so many calories. So here’s hoping that this can make a dent in that and counter the effects.
