vlog meme - protein, nutrition to help with gains

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been working towards my own fat loss goal. I started my journey weighing in at 78kg. I am now 76kg and making good progress so far.

Find out how I make it so easy in the video below.


I’m starting to post video’s on Youtube and my social media profiles, so be sure to stop by and check them out at YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and my Facebook Page.

One Step Closer with Personal Training Qualifications

Hey you guys, I’ve recently found a great deal so that I can get my qualifications to become a Personal Trainer. That’s right, in the next few years, I might be in a gym training people.

So the next year or so is going to be really difficult. I’m working, learning out of office hours, training myself and I’ll be helping my girlfriend train. This is going to be hectic!

Anybody that knows me will know that I have wanted to do this for years. I’ve actually been contemplating this career for over 5 years now but, back when I was riding Suzy (my motorbike) All my friends were telling me if I broke my leg/arm in an accident, I’d basically be out of a job – they couldn’t have been more right.

I’ve worked in Marketing for a year now, its great! I absolutely love marketing as a profession, and hopefully, when I launch my own gym (the goal is 7 years from now), I can use everything I have learned to help promote my own business.

I have no intention of leaving marketing for quite some time, I’m happy where I work, but it would be great to have the knowledge required to become a personal trainer. It means two things:

  1. I can learn how to work out my body in an optimal way so that maybe one day, I might just be competing for something (bodybuilding/boxing/powerlifting – I haven’t decided yet).
  2. If I ever do decide I want to change career, I have the perfect qualifications to get my dream job!

I’ll still be blogging, although, I may actually have to head over to YouTube and do some vlogging instead to try and save on some time but I’ll figure that out on the way.

Has anybody else got qualifications for being a Personal Trainer? If you have please share how you felt about getting them and if you found the course helpful for your own goals.

A Stronger week off

Hi guys, sorry it’s been a while, but, I had to give my friends and family some much-deserved love.

I thought it would only be fair to discuss why I have taken this time to make myself stronger. I don’t mean that I have gotten physically stronger either, I have made myself stronger on the inside.

My body has been given a chance to rest, my mind replenished and my heart rested. It has been hard for me, I don’t often socialise as much as I have done and it has required a certain kind of energy which I don’t often use, or for that matter, have.

However, this experience has increased the amount of ‘social energy’ (I don’t know if it has a true name) and I have found myself being that little more extroverted. My closest friends and family would tell you how I was too serious the majority of the time. Thankfully, this week off has given me a bit more energy to have fun.

This is not the only strength I have improved, however. It seems I am physically stronger. I don’t know if this is because of the increased energy levels, increased hormones or something else, but it just goes to show that a rest, is in fact, good for your body!

Now, You may recall from my last blog, I am going to be using a bit of a planning system to write up my blogs. You can now expect to see a blog from me on Monday and Thursday. On Monday, I will be discussing my thoughts and opinions on my workouts, life and diet. On Thursday, I will be giving some guidance on working out, discussing the best methods to get the best results.

New Site, New Plan – Better Experiences

Hi guys,

I just wanted to make you all aware that whilst on my break, I have been thinking about how to take the blog a little bit further.

This means I am making a few changes to the way I do things, I will be a bit more organised and have a lot more planning to do. But, hopefully, this will ease the load a little bit and help me keep that work, life balance.

I hope you all like the updated site with its new feel, I will be making things a little bit more colour themed too – who knows, you may end up liking it even more than the last one!

Please let me know if you see any bugs / typo’s and I will fix them right away.

Please hit the subscribe button on the sidebar (or on the bottom of the page if you are using a mobile or tablet) And don’t forget to follow me on my social media platforms if you fancy stalking me a little. 😉

You can expect to start hearing from me again on Monday!
