How Did You Get Started?

From a young age I've always been active with exercise and sports. Gymnastics as a youngster progressing to Muay Thai Kickboxing as well as playing and enjoying the tough sport of Rugby. I always attended the gym regularly and did the odd class but never took it too seriously now. After opening up my own gym early this year I decided I wanted to take my body to the next level, so in May I wrote down my goals for the future and one was to compete. I then found an amazing local trainer who had years of bodybuilding experience and picked the next natural competition coming up and started my journey to the top.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I do cardio 6 days a week, generally power walk for 45 minutes in the morning or I jump into one of the boot camp classes (interval) down at my gym. I like to keep my cardio varied and exciting. The boot camp classes change every time, so I can get an all over workout without having to think about it. I also hit the weight hard 4 days a week.

My weekly routine is as follows:

Day 1: Chest/Front Delts

Day 2: Cardio

  • Power Walk: 45 minutes
  • Boot Camp Class (Circuit Training)

Day 3: Back/Rear Delts

Day 4: Cardio

  • Power Walk: 45 minutes
  • Boot Camp Class (Circuit Training)

Day 5: Arms

Day 6: Legs

Day 7: Off

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I eat 6 times a day, loads of protein mostly turkey, fish and of course protein shakes. I also make sure I get loads of organic vegetables and salad inside me. I try to be very disciplined and consistent with my diet. I leave my cheat meal to once in the weekend while training for competition. I don't believe in cutting it out completely.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I would say sticking to a consistent daily schedule Whey, Glutamine, BCAA, Vitamin C, maltodextrin & Fish Oil has worked a treat all products come from and are myprotein branded. I haven't been competing that long but my body seemed to transform in no time with the assistance of these supplements. I also was on creatine for a bit which help my muscles take great shape before the National Championships.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Every morning I wake up feeling the best I've ever felt, it seems that the harder I work, the better I feel so why would I want to change that? People around me seem to feed of my energy and I only want to see how far I can take this. It's a way of life for me now and I feel that I'm on this earth to be a role model and inspiration for others.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

As mentioned above, I own a gym, so being motivated on a daily basis is important as I need to live and breathe a healthy life style so that I can be a role model and someone our members can look up too. A lot of my motivation comes from within, wanting to keep healthy and happy for many future years to come.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

I really wanted to challenge myself to see if I could actually take my body to the next level of fitness and in my eyes that was body building. It's been at the back of my mind for years, so finally doing it was a truly great feeling inside knowing that I've achieved one of my goals. It's been a tough road but at the end it's all worth it.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

After 4 months of dedication & consistency this year I came 3rd in the UK for Figure in the British Natural Body Building Federation. My aim now is too keep in the best shape as possible and focus on my off season program so that next year I can get to number 1 and get my Pro Card. It would be an absolute dream to compete with the Pro's and I'm willing to put that effort in to get there. I am also in talks with a few companies about getting sponsorship which is exciting.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Hire a trainer or coach with good experience who can help you. Having someone who can support you and bring you the knowledge for competing is so important. If you were like me and knew nothing about competing, I needed someone who could guide me step by step from poses to routines. Also everyone has days in the gym when it can be a struggle, having a trainer there to motivate you and push you is crucial for taking your body to the next level.
