I’m a coach who cuts through the crap in the industry. I give you the facts that you need in order to change your physique and help you achieve any body composition goal that you set yourself, in the simplest, most straightforward way possible.
Who am I? In a nutshell, I was the skinny fat kid at uni who couldn’t get a girl to go on a date.
Zero confidence. Zero know how.
I did a sports science degree with a load of rugby lads and I had to try really hard to pretend I was as cool as them by severely exaggerating stories about my adventures with the girls (or just making them up entirely). They had all the muscle, all the banter, and all the girls.
So, to catch the attention of the girls I knew I needed bigger muscles & a six pack.
Next stop Google. I needed supplements and a workout plan.
I used to spend £150 a month on supplement stacks, I’d spend £60 on generic workout plans from my
Guess how that turned out?
Yep, still no dates, no girls, and just an empty bank balance. With even less confidence in my body and left even more confused than before.
After Uni, I managed to get my dream job in professional football working as the 1st team sports scientist for a premier league team. As you can imagine, the spotlight was on me even more,
Luckily at that point, I had found science and the answer to my problems. I needed to worry more about the calories I was eating and the weight I was lifting and a lot less on the supplements I was taking, and the times of the day I was eating. That combined with having a clear goal, and not several conflicting ones helped me to where I am today.
I’ll never be the biggest guy in the world, my genetics won’t allow it, but as someone who has struggled with being skinny, I know what it takes for smaller guys to gain some muscle, it’s just not as easy as it is for us as it is for the bigger dudes.
“It’s funny how simplifying everything you do, working hard and developing a routine attitude to the gym, can totally transform your body confidence and with it, your own physique development”
Trust me, I came from a background of being the quiet, awkward, skinny-fat one and have now transformed into someone who is more outgoing, body confident and able to feel like I belong in a gym. The single best thing you can do to achieve that is to simplify everything you do.
You can even do it with a young family. I’ve got a young toddler who keeps me on my toes, so know what it’s like juggling priorities, but it’s certainly achievable.
(See, I did manage to get a date)
