Donovan A.

Mel Korum Family YMCA

Mel Korum Family YMCA member Donovan Arndt recently competed in the Max Muscle Ironman Competition where he took second place as a Physique Competitor. 
 
"I did the competition because I wanted to challenge myself in a way that I had never done so," says Donovan. 
 
At first he was hesitant and nervous to do a show, but with all the support and encouragement from the people around him at home and at the Y, he made the commitment and went for it. 
 
"I had doubts and wanted to quit at times, but the feeling of being on the stage after all the hard work and dieting was definitely one of the greatest feelings ever," says Donovan.
