LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Evansville bodybuilder is inspiring others with his transformation inside and out. 

Collin Clark has Down Syndrome.  A year ago, the 22-year-old was out-of-shape and working the desk at Bob's Gym.  That's when he made friends with a personal trainer preparing for a bodybuilding competition. 

Clark started training and following a strict diet.  Now, he's gained confidence and muscles. "I feel great. I'm so happy doing this. Body building's in my blood. I've always wanted to do it ever since I was a kid," he says.

Clark has lost 60 pounds and is toned and competition ready. He will compete in the Kentucky Muscle Bodybuilding Championships next week in Louisville. Clark has a stage routine planned to AC/DC's "Back in Black.
