1 - What is your background?
I have always been in awe of the classic bodybuilding physique from the 70’s, such as Frank Zane, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mike Mentzer, and I wanted to learn and discover how those types of physiques were possible, this got me into learning more about weightlifting and the importance of nutrition and how the two are equally as important.
2 - What is your stance on good nutrition?
I cannot emphasis enough the importance of good nutrition, if you were to consider for example, your body was say a Rolls Royce, if you put the wrong type of fuel in the engine, your Rolls Royce isn’t going to function very efficiently (if at all!), the same can be said for your body and your nutrition.
3 - What motivates you to live this lifestyle?
I am a big believer in the “practice what your preach” philosophy, if I want to help my clients reach their goals then I firmly believe that I should lead by example and show them that with the right guidance, they can make massive changes to their own well-being and lifestyle.
4 - What is your top pieces of advice for our customers looking to shape up and get healthy?
My top piece of advice would be, don’t go to extreme, take everything in small bite size chunks, set yourself short terms goals, which will progressively lead to your long term goal, to many people put too much expectation on themselves to start with, and the extremity of their effort is normally unsustainable, which in turn leads to frustration and then giving up.
5 - What do you hope to give to our customers from your content on FitMag?
My aim with the content I will be writing for FitMag will be the same with what it is in my day to day life, and that is INSPIRE, EDUCATE and MOTIVATE.
