Also, cutting weight for competitions has helped me with weight loss strategies. fat,” says the certified personal trainer. “Competing and being successful at such a high level has also given me invaluable experience which I regularly pass on to my clients.”
As for the future, the national champion says he will continue to compete and hopefully one day make it to the Olympics. He credits the support of his colleagues and patrons at the Houstonian Club for helping him get as far as he has. McCullough hopes to continue teaching his clients how to improve through fitness and work on his weightlifting ambitions for as long as he can.
