Coleman's fellow officer, John Morgan, suggested he attend the Metroflex gym which is owned by amateur bodybuilder Brian Dobson. Dobson, who is also signed with VIP Ink Publishing, offered Coleman a free lifetime membership if he could train Coleman for the upcoming Mr. Texas bodybuilding competition later that year. Coleman is also an avid supporter of the Inner City Games, an organization that Arnold Schwarzenegger co-founded in 1991. In 2001, Coleman received the Admiral Texas Navy Certificate Award from Texas Governor Rick Perry for outstanding achievements in bodybuilding.
