Sport: NPC Bodybuilder
Brief Bio: My name is Timothy C. Terwilliger and I am 22 years old. I was born on April 8, 1990, raised in New Hartford, CT. At a very young age my father taught my brothers and me the importance of hard work and earning what you want in life. It paid off when I was able to buy my first dirt bike as a young boy.
Since then I have applied this to every aspect of my life. Little did I know, It would become my life, concerning bodybuilding. I joined the Marine Corps in March of 2009 and 3 months later was discharged due to a staph infection. I began working out in my basement, alone, with no direction. I started to fall in love with it. In September of 2009, I had knee surgery on my left knee. It took about 4-5 months for me to walk on it again. In January 2010, I remember going downstairs to my basement and bench pressing. Since then, I have evolved into the bodybuilder I am becoming today.
In the early summer of 2010, I joined a gym in Torrington, CT. I took a lot in there, but had no clear purpose behind my lifting. All I knew was that each time I stepped foot into the gym, nothing else in the world mattered. In late 2011, I switched over to Energy Fitness in Torrington, CT. It’s amazing how much I’ve grown as who I am in all aspects of life, not just bodybuilding. A few months after joining Energy Fitness, my videographer, Nikolas Elliot, made two videos of me just doing what I love to do every day, lifting weights in the gym.
I then became sponsored by iFORCE Nutrition. I thought my drive, intensity, and focus couldn’t get any stronger. I was very wrong. Each day, each time I step into the gym, each person I run into, each meal I eat, each video I watch, each bodybuilder I study, every time I talk to my coach, I grow more than I did before. The fact is, no matter how much you know today, you will always have room for improvement and growth. I am competing on October 27, 2012 for NPC New England’s in Boston Massachusetts. I have realized that no matter what happens in life, if you put your whole mind, whole body, and whole efforts into your passion and what you love to do, anything is possible, no matter what the current circumstances. I am very thankful for my family who has molded me, my coach who has guided me, and my friends and supporters who always encourage me and expect more. Someday, I hope to be standing on stage competing for Mr. Olympia. Until then, I will continue to work hard, chase dreams, absorb knowledge, help those in need, and always give thanks to God, where my true strength comes from.
