Connor Whalen

Since before I can remember, I was the big kid. Weigh-ins for youth football bluntly suggested I was, too big to play with my friends. However, this negative connotation quickly reversed as reached high school. My size designated my position as an offensive lineman. This categorization based on size, carried through high school and I continued playing collegiate football at Hobart College. Suddenly, too big became not big enough. At the end of my freshman year, I was 270lbs and needed to gain more weight if I wanted remain competitive. I was encouraged by coaches to keep my weight up so that I would continue to perform at a high level. From years of experience as a competitive athlete, I had acquired a depth of knowledge about fitness. I began to question whether my physical form accurately represented my health values. Sure, I was big and strong, but I also felt slow, immobile, and unhealthy. I made the decision to stop playing football and pursue my passion in health. Over the course of four months I lost 80lbs. This lifestyle change has inspired me to pursue a career in helping others with their health and fitness goals.
