Why a Flexing Peanut?
I had a turbulent childhood and came from meager beginnings. There was a lot of struggle and a lot of chaos in my young life. Unfortunately, we often found our home without food and/or electricity.
During those traumatic times I was fascinated by the likes of Superman, Hulk Hogan, Optimus Prime and others who had strength and did good with it.
I felt if I was more like these characters, I could not only help my situation, but I could help others too. I went through a phase where I flexed in every picture I was in. My family even had to start holding my arms down so I didn’t ruin the family pictures with my “huge muscles”. Hence, the flexing peanut and Superman color scheme.
The image of Fokken Nuts brings my past full circle to my present day life as a fitness industry professional and pro bodybuilding athlete.
