For Mike Chang, the obsession started early. When he was 10 years old, he’d ask his mom to record women’s group aerobic workouts that would air early in the morning, then watch them in the afternoon when he got home from school, following along faithfully with a pair of three-pound dumbbells.
“That’s really how I got started,” says Chang, who now runs one of the Internet’s most popular training sites, sixpackshortcuts.com. “Then I started going to a gym and lifting when I was 14, and I’ve been in there ever since.”
Chang has now passed his enthusiasm for fitness onto a legion of online devotees, racking up millions of YouTube hits for his training videos. It’s not hard to figure out how Chang has been able to build such a loyal fan base.
