Where it began…..

I first stepped foot into the gym when I was 15, not having a clue of what I was doing or how to lift correctly, BUT I loved the gym environment and very prematurely decided to enter the Mr Bury competition in the Teenage category, finishing last.



My first competition The Teenage Mr Bury

Through trial and error over the years, and learning from others, I gradually improved my physique up until the age of 22, and then through other distractions (Thai Boxing and going out with the lads every weekend!) took a long hiatus from the sport.

Fast forward to 2007 and after watching a close friend compete, I got the ‘itch’ again to get back into training and competing onstage once again.

Being more mature and a lot more serious regarding educating myself on Training and Nutrition, this enabled me to really improve my physique, progressing over the years from Teenager, Novice, Mens Lightweight Weight Division, winning multiple titles including UK Title 3 times, an Amateur World Title, which gained me my WNBF Pro Card in 2015, enabling me to compete at elite pro level with the best natural bodybuilders in the World.

I placed a closely contested 2nd in the Pro Lightweight class at the WNBF World championships in 2017 and then 3rd recently this year.

So you can say it has been quite a journey so far, and I’ve honestly surpassed what I ever expected to achieve back all those years ago!

So how can I help you?

Since 2011 I’ve been helping men and women over the years achieve their best shape, ranging from general fat loss, muscle gain to bodybuilding contest prep, from beginner to high level competitors.

I have gained a lot of experience working with various clients, and had the honour of learning from mentors Eric Helms, Mark Coles, Paul Booth and Ian Duckett over the years.

As you can see from my client transformation pics I have a great mix of clients with different goals.

I’m not a ‘quick fix’ coach who promises you the world and fails to deliver.

We work on your goals together and set a realistic expectation of what can be achieved during a period of time.

“You must be willing to work hard and want to make a change to achieve the shape of your life ” 

If you have specific bodybuilding and/or contest prep goals, then you can be assured that I too have ‘walked the walk’ and will be in your corner to achieve optimal results.
