I am offering one-to-one personal training services in my hometown of Perth based in The Body Academy Perth. Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle or just keep fit, I will be there to guide you towards your goals. You'll benefit from my years of experience of training and my know-how of dieting from my success as a professional bodybuilder. Feel comfortable in the gym in the hands of someone who not only has Personal Training qualifications (SVQ Fitness Instructor Level 2 awarded through Fitness Scotland) but has also walked the walk and lived and experienced the lifestyle required to reach your Fitness goals.
Background: I was born on Valentines Day 1975. My day job is working as a personal trainer at a local gym but for any Bodybuilder, Bodybuilding is almost a full-time job itself.
I have been Bodybuilding since I bought my first set of weights 15 years ago in 1992. However at that young age I wasn't commited to my training the way I am now. Workouts were for the sole purpose of building a decent body to impress the girls, and to meet girls you have to go out and party.
However after a while I noticed my body responded well and quickly to weight lifting. Much more so than my friends. I was also getting a little weary of my Party lifestyle, so my New Years resolution in 1998 was to give Bodybuilding a concerted effort. Training more regularly and paying more attention to the Nutritional side of things.
Progress was good. In 2000 I started using nutritional supplements like protein powder and creatine and Bodybuilding became less of a hobby and more a way of life. In 2004 I decided to test my physique out and entered the BNBF Scottish Qualifier.
Titles:
BNBF Scottish Middleweight Champion 2004,2006
BNBF British Middleweight Champion 2004
BNBF Mr. Britain 2004
PNBA Professional Natural Mr Olympia 4th

I have been unfortunate to be stricken with other health related matters.
The main problem I have is that I am an asthmatic and suffer from a vast amount of serious food allergies, that lead to anaphlactic shock if the foods are consumed. A problem in a sport that relies a great deal on Nutrition. I am very allergic to all Dairy products which excludes me from using the Sports main food supplement, Whey protein powder. I have to make do with the much maligned Soya Protein varieties. Incidents of anaphylactic shock don't do much for your training either haha!!
I feel bodybuilding has been very benificial to my asthma (controlling my breathing and improving my general fitness) but the asthma can be a great hinderance too. Simple colds always end up in my lungs and training can be curtailed for a week.
Against the odds perhaps, but it just goes to show how much you can achieve if you persevere and stick at something.
The problems I have faced will help me understand any food issues and health problems that appear to be getting in your way and I can help you overcome them.
