“Evidence based research is the key when designing an effective exercise program… but remember, research looks at the average result of all participants. You are not an average, you are unique. Use research to find a starting point, but then change your program until you find what works best for you!”
During my formative years I was quite overweight, then, around the age of 10-11 years I hit a growth spurt and changed from a little fat kid to one of the tallest people in my year. I naturally gravitated towards sport. I was successful in a variety of sports from multiple SAPSASA wins, to Volleyball and Club Football. During this time I was first introduced to, and fell in love with, resistance training. I took a period off sport and gym during my 20s to concentrate on study. I completed a undergraduate degree in Health Science (Nutrition) and postgraduate Masters in Dietetics. Outside of my job as Assistant Club Manager at The Gym Glenelg, I am currently focused on competing in Men’s Physique competitions and online nutrition coaching.
