I said big things were coming this year for FlaredupFitness! A big thanks to my good friend and broadcasting student, Olivia McDonald for making this short documentary explaining some of my story and taking a look into what I do on a daily basis! (Plus you get to see me eating pancakes and looking at rocks!)
I was hesitant to post this, it’s personal and I always feel awkward in front of a camera but hopefully some of you can relate.

Your. Video made me cry! Great job
What mg of predinsone where you on when you snapped that muscle/tendon?
Awe thank you! I had just tapered off the prednisone two months prior to snapping it but apparently it can weaken and dry your tendons out for months.
This is great man, this really gives an inside look at what you face on a day to day basis and paints a picture for others dealing with similar issues. Keep posting bro!:)
Troy, you’re so inspirational to share this very up-close and personal look into your life and what it’s like to love with IBD. An enormous amount of courage… I have so much respect for you and really admire and look up to you, as a fellow IBDer.
So much of what you shared I also resonate with… Like you, it took me a good 10 years before I finally accepted having Crohn’s and feeling comfortable enough to tell people about it… Like you, I kept it hidden… Only my parents knew. Your website and video documentary are exactly what I would have loved to have found and had as support and inspiration when I was first diagnosed with Crohn’s exactly 20 years ago… Too bad there wasn’t social media or Internet back then! Connecting with others like you has been such a powerful part of my healing journey and accepting and learning to live more fully while living with Crohn’s. Before social media, I thought I was the only one experiencing the things that I was experiencing and I suffered much of it in silence. It’s empowering and liberating to know you’re not alone and that we re all in this together. There’s a wonderful, supportive, loving IBD community ” family” online and I feel truly grateful to have connected with you. You inspire me enormously. Keep up the amazing work!
Supporting you 110%,
