It's time to get serious about leveling up! The Level Grind is my personal journey towards building a foundation of fitness for my life. I've been working out steadily for about three years now, and now I've decided that it's time for me to take the plunge and become a Personal Trainer myself!

I want to be as healthy as possible and I'm focused on purely natural, clean eating, and functional training methods. I ALSO want to look damn good, and I use my favorite game characters as inspiration (although some of them are more realistic goals than others - I'm looking at you, Gears of War).

I've also started a YouTube channel where I talk fitness, games, and general geekiness, and you can find me on Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter @matadorphilip! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the journey.
