Welcome to my story, welcome to my life.

This site is a pictorial & blog representation of an amazing journey I have undertaken, and continue along, a journey of personal transformation. It started with a simple desire to get in great shape and lose a lot of weight, and then became so very much more. What started with a physical transformation soon evolved in to a total overhaul, a transformation of diet, lifestyle, career and productivity, pastimes and interests, emotional well being, relationships, and overall total and complete happiness.

Somewhere along the line, it became evident that I had motivated some folks, inspired, and gave them hope that they could do the same. I was flattered, as that was not what I ever intended or was trying for, but very honored that it occurred. Old friends and new came to me for advice, motivation, guidance, or even just to share stories, and then one day a dear friend suggested a great idea - create a website where friends can watch, read, see photos, follow my progress, and have a laugh along the way.

My hope is to use it to help others derive benefit & find the happiness that I have achieved, and am continuing to grow.
I'm honored to have you aboard this wild ride with me, as I ....... Reinvent Brian Furer!

Posing class at the mile high mecca

2 weeks till state and 19 days till masters nationals. GRIND.

Workin’ on my selfie game.

Late workout but gotta do it. Excuses = LAST PLACE.  

Meathead meal….

Dinner with brother! Long overdue catching up time.

No Lie!

I think the seasonings ReadyFitGo : Healthy take away puts on their salmon make it the best salmon I’ve had to date….to include Ocean Prime and Capital Grille. 

Burn, baby, burn…

Two hours of cardio…..

and an hour plus lifting daily…. This old man is tired, soaking blisters in epsom salt, dry needling tendonitis to hold the bod together. Seven meals a day and gallons of water, sleep deprived…. But DAMN it feels good to be on that show grind again!  

Coaching Stevee Kay

This girl just departed the world of pageantry as 2013 Miss Colorado to enter the fitness world and Stevee Kay rocked the prejudging! Killed it with flair and stage presence! Thanks goes out to posing & prep coach Melissa Lorenzo who was A-mazing! Head coach Brian Firkins made the entire thing happen. …. And I […]

Journey to the 2015 Colo State NPC

All things revolve around Ready Fit Go!

  Earlier today, a chance NPC competitor reunion, all picking up bulk orders! So good to see great friends Stephanie Mola, Michael Lee & Rachel Fisher walked in moments later!

These shirts are premium quality and fit AMAZING…lol..make me look in better shape than I really am! Mass Monsters, the male counterpart to the Fierce line! And the graphics are COOL.

Maxin’ out with those 3 pounders

Ready Fit…. SHOW!

Best thing to ever happen to a competitor… Bulk food from Ready Fit Go!

Back on that grind!

  Been a year and a half, two surguries, time to get back in that show prep groove! T minus 10 weeks and counting….

Post workout family dinner!

Thought I’d be smart and get a salad for lunch from Whole Foods.

Looks great! $26.75. Back toReadyFitGo : Healthy take away for me!

“Try our new meal recipe”, he said.

              Lemon garlic tilapia & asparagus. This is what I ate 3 times a day before my last NPC shows…. There’s nothing boring about it when its made by Ready Fit Go! I’d eat this recreationally! It was great. Dieting made easy, show prep made enjoyable…. Well played, Ready […]

Shooting again with one of my favorite photographers and creative masterminds, Dustin and Natalie Sheffield of DSP Active. This time, a country western blend with Americana.

Dustin Sheffield lifestyle shoot 11 Oct 2013

I was approached by a photographer whom I had never truly known, worked with, or even seen his work, but I “went for it”. The experience was amazing – fast, efficient, organized, sets pre planned and lighting preset, highly creative and a joy to work with. As we shot and I previewed, I saw his […]

Max Muscle Corporate Photo & Video Shoot! October 2013

I have been honored by the invitation to the headquarters of Max Muscle Sports Nutrition in Orange County, Calif for an exciting shoot with 4 other finalists from this year’s MaxFormation top 10!

The Old Me. January 2013

This is the old me.  This was me, before I began training on Jan 2, 2013. I was a physical disaster.  I wore a 38-40 inch waist, which spoke nothing of the far larger belly I carried above my waistline.  I couldn’t perform most crossfit type exercises, it was physically impossible.  In fact, to my […]
