He’s already racked up 3.6 million Instagram followers, and he's currently on tour with social media's reigning queen, Taylor Swift. The key to this guy’s success?

1 year (2 weeks) ive been working extremely hard this past year and im so happy to see good progress. Working out has changed my life for the best, it not only keeps me healthy and strong but it keeps me mentally straight. It does so much more for me then any type of therapy. I definitely recommend starting if you're thinking about it. Its hard work but it pays off. Im happy with my progress but theres so much more to go ! 😊
