My Story

My “Fat Pic” on the left, and on the right is my last competition at age 50 in 2015.

Hello and welcome to My name is Sonny Clayton and I am a 58 year old Maintenance Mechanic at General Mills in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. After not going to a gym for 15 years, I was overweight in my early 40s.  In December of 2007 I went on my first diet and lost 47 lbs. in 3 weeks. In January of 2008 I joined a gym and 15 years later I’m still training.  I competed in my first Natural Bodybuilding competition in October of 2010 at the age of 45. I have competed 4 more times, as well as twice in Natural Powerlifting competitions.
