On this episode, Jason Will talks with Mckenzie Richards about her transformative journey from a 17-year-old modest and unhealthy high school student to a happy and confident bodybuilding national champion, role model, and a TikTok health and fitness influencer. McKenzie did not start out a champion; she has fought her body weight, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, depression, and insecurity through most of her teen years. After being stuck at home during the Coronavirus school lockdowns, she started eating better and exercising. Eventually, joining her Mother at a local gym, McKenzie was asked to join a bodybuilding team, and the rest is the story of a teen national champion. Enjoy this inspirational story of self-determination, grit, discipline, and confidence.

McKenzie Richards Says:

I don't want to be big. I don't want to be small. I want to be healthy. I want to feel good. I want to be confident; that's all I want. Fitness is whatever you make it.

I'm going to do what I can to help people so they can better themselves, so they can be a better daughter or son or student.

When you're doing what's best for you, it'll slowly start building your confidence.

I've learned not everyone's going to like you, and you're just going to have to deal with that.

Everyone wants to hate, and it's mostly just a jealousy thing.

If you want to lose weight, it's all in your diet. If you want to put on weight, it's all in your diet.


Jason Will Says:

Remove yourself from those peer groups that are doing things that are not serving you, your mental health, your future, and not serving your goals.

Do you want to be the wind or the flag, and McKenzie you are definitely the wind.
