My passion for fitness grew before I was actually getting ‘healthy’.
When I was 15 my dad died suddenly from a stroke, went into a hospital with a migraine on Wednesday, dead by the Saturday, he was 47 years old. Dealing with stress on a daily basis as a manager of a holiday park and very well known in the sales industry he seemed fine on the outside, a slight migraine here and there and nothing more was thought of it, he even went to the gym regularly and wasn’t overweight, then the worst thing happened without any warning at all, Monday I spoke to him and then no more, no more words were passed between us, the last words were him simply asking if I got the money he sent, he was providing for his family as we all aim to do.
I pushed and realized my passion was in helping busy individuals because I couldn’t help my dad, I didn’t realize it at first purely because I had got overweight, I started working out to drop the lbs and ended up competing in 7 bodybuilding shows along with various endurance events building a name for myself working with some very high-level endurance athletes on their nutrition including a Tour De France rider, Olympic cyclist and world champion triathlete to name a few, but I didn’t feel the passion here until I got deep into working with the busiest business people around and realized, wow, this is like helping my dad. If I stop even one child from losing their parent before their time then all of this, all the hours of study, hours of training and hours of pushing forwards has been worth it, this is my passion.
I believe in balance, finding the balance in health means getting it in the 5 M’s
- Madness (you need to have fun)
- Money (makes the world go round)
- Mindset (it’s a buzzword but a cool one)
- Movement (it’s kind of exercise)
- Marriage (relationships even with your reflection should be on point, you deserve it)
And finally here, we talk about having a scalable business, that’s 100% what people want when they get into this industry as an entrepreneur or you have the ambition to reach the top in the corporate world, I get that.
For less than the cost of a personal trainer in your local gym (who is probably not as good as I am) you can become an online coaching client with the guy who is actually used to working with the busiest people around and dealing with every excuse you've ever had whilst STILL getting amazing results.
