How Trenton Overcame Bullying and Found Purpose

How Trenton Overcame Bullying and Found Purpose

As an overweight child, Trenton was a victim of bullying and the subject of jokes. "It started at the age of 10— I didn't notice it at the time," he recalled. "I didn't care about how I looked. I was just a kid. As I got older, the bullying got worse and I kept getting bigger." The constant derision and laughter about Trenton's weight began to take its toll. "I was a freshman in high school and I was crying myself to sleep at night," he admitted. "My dad got me into fitness and gave me the tools that I needed to lose weight and lead a happier and healthier lifestyle."
