How It All Started

 

My health and fitness journey did not start with food. At the age of 21 I started working out and getting into health and fitness scene. Prior to that I was an athlete most of my life playing aau & high school basketball. I loved basketball. I was only around 5’5’’ when I had my first dunk in game as a freshman. But I always got hurt. Hindering me from playing and getting a chance to compete at the highest level. I did not have the best diet growing up. Pizza, fried chicken, hot dogs, etc… that's what I usually ate. I am a very picky eater so that did not help at all. I never understood how important diet was until I got into working out and started developing the physique I desired. Then, was when I realized why I got hurt so much growing up playing sports. I needed the proper food aka fuel to keep my body going and performing at a level where I could compete. Injury after injury discouraged me and at 17 years old I quit high school sports. I was on a scholarship at a prep high school for sports and I just left and went to a public high school to finish my senior year off. I did not finish senior year so I did not graduate. I started to hang around the wrong crowd. Got me into using drugs and alcohol. I met my wife during those times which helped me get out of that situations. A couple years later and got clean at the age of 21 which was when I started my fitness journey. I used working out to replace the drugs I was using. I got so into fitness I wanted to compete one day on the stage of a physique competition. I wanted to be very good at it and did the research, bought the programs and eventually got certified as a personal trainer through NASM. I attained a physique naturally that I was proud of but I wanted more! Then was when I realised diet was the most important aspect of gaining muscle mass while staying lean. When to eat a certain combination of macronutrients together and when not to, at what time during the day and before or after your workout, gave me the results I was looking for! I started dieting myself through what I learned and through trial and error was how this business started. The types of foods in these meals are result inspired through my success. I still, to this day eat how I promote my meal prep company. There was a time when people would ask me what I ate and I would write up diet plans and meal plans. I even took a couple friends to the grocery store to help them pick out what to eat and how to cook it. I came to a realization that I would rather help people through dieting and meal preparation than to train them personally. There became somewhat of a demand to make meals that I started cooking for people and in February of 2018 I officially started this business. Since then it has been all uphill! I thank everyone who supported me in the beginning and to this day! This is how I started “On The Grow”. My name is Andrew Narciso and I am the owner of On The Grow Inc. Whenever you are ready to get started just let me know how I can help you!
