Simply put, I came to Health by Science in April because I wanted to look good! With previous personal trainers I would get some results and plateau soon after. I would end up feeling unhappy with how I looked, I never felt like I was getting any stronger and found the eating goals they set (if any) were extremely unachievable!
Over Christmas/new year I was abroad visiting family and looking back at the photos I was shocked at my appearance. I had put on a lot of weight. I knew I would be returning over the summer and this time I wasnâ€™t going to let this happen.
Health by Science explain exactly WHY I am doing something whether itâ€™s my deadlift technique or taking in more protein and itâ€™s all backed up with SCIENCE (which I really like but donâ€™t worry, itâ€™s not pushed down your throat!) Knowing why is something I wasnâ€™t used to with other trainers and this has helped me with my goals. Iâ€™m not aimlessly running for hours on the treadmill or a million low weight reps on the leg press machine but instead, I spend less time in the gym and getting better results than before.
They have taught me a new way of approaching nutrition and this more mindful way is a much more achievable and sustainable whatever my timetable. I now feel far more confident left alone in the gym especially now I can lift more than most guys! And even after saying that Iâ€™d never do a â€˜fun runâ€™, I did the Bing Blazer 10k obstacle race with Stuart and actually found it quiteâ€¦fun!
I have now been let loose in the Philippines with a body weight routine and the know how to keep up this healthy lifestyle outwith the gym.
