A FORMER major league baseball player has shared shocking photos of his transformation into a bodybuilder.
Kyle Farnsworth, who played 16 seasons in the majors with teams like the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees, is now a certified personal trainer and bodybuilder.
In addition, Farnsworth offers athletic training, baseball instruction and physical conditioning through Farnsworth Peak Performance.
He played in the majors from 1999 to 2014.
Since leaving the majors, the player-turned-coach has also dabbled in bodybuilding.
In May, Farnsworth announced he would be taking the stage at his first competition in June.
In late June, he shared that he had competed in three classic body divisions and won three first-place medals.
He thanked his wife Maria, who wrote back, “I’m so proud of you for always persevering, trying new things, challenging yourself and motivating others.”
In July, Farnsworth shared another update four weeks after his first competition.
“It was definitely a lot of fun. There is still a lot to improve and to get better. But I’m very happy that this is my first competition at the age of 46,” reads part of the caption.
“Don’t be afraid to fail and step out of your comfort zone. This is the only way we can grow and get better. It is time!”
The photos have fans curious about the transformation, while others are asking for tips.
“I need to train with you,” wrote one person.
“unreal man!!!!” said another.
“Look damn good brother,” wrote another.
