Transformation Tuesday and long post alert!
A little over 6 weeks ago I turned 30 years of age. 2 days after that I committed myself to an intensive course of personal training and strict dieting with Leigh at Ultimate Performance London City. I did this in the hope of achieving something that I'd wanted to do for a very long time, which was to see how far I could push my body and get into the best shape of my life. The fact is, this was fucking hard but I'm so happy with the results and I wanted to share them with you.
I gave up booze for 6 weeks, trained 3 times a week with Leigh, who helped me use correct form and get the most out of every exercise, spent more time in the kitchen than I thought I ever thought possible and did 5 or 6 shows a week with Stomp! It was brutal but so worth it.
I now have a great foundation upon which to build going forward and my whole outlook on life, not just fitness, has changed. You can do anything you set your mind to. It's just a case of consistency and dedication.
I just want to say a quick thanks to Samantha McGowan for being a source of inspiration to me after I saw her 12 week transformation and also putting me in touch with the guys at London City. Other people close to me that inspired me to go on this fitness journey were my boy Reuben 'the nod' Shamlou, Simon Watts and the beast that is Ian James Vincent. I always try to keep myself focused and driven towards goals in my life as I believe it's the only way to really progress. Im shocked at what I've achieved in 6 (agonising) weeks and am excited for the future now. My aim now is to try and get some commercial/modelling work with this now hopefully but who knows. Anyway, sorry for the long post but I'm pretty chuffed with these results so any haters can just keep scrolling.
Side note: Yes, I shaved some body hair and yes there may or may not be some tanning going on 😎 In for a penny, in for a pound and all that.
Also, apologies for the ensuing hashtags and loads more pics on their way from the legend that is Guido Mandozzi.
Cheers. I'm off to get a pizza and a beer!! #transformationtuesday #health #fitness #nutrition #model #gym #fitspo #myprotein #
