IT WAS AT THIS POINT HOWEVER THAT I DISCOVERED THE SO CALLED ‘GYM LIFE!’
I had finally found a new buzz and oh boy, this was a buzz! I was fast becoming addicted to the art of body sculpting through the use of resistance training and nutrition which led me to spend hours, days and weeks constantly researching new training programs and dietary methods to achieve a better body, inside and out
Fast forward twelve years, hundreds of books read, thousands of hours of research compiled and many months of trail and tribulation had… and we have the Gold Medal Lifestyle
Throughout the last decade and more, like many fitness addicts out there, I have experimented on myself (and friends) with almost every training variation and diet you can conceivably imagine, in the earlier years with mixed success, but these days with a lot more sure-fire results
In this industry however, there is a lot of what I call ‘fluff and bulls***’ which is why I only really align myself with the works of a few selected people. People who get real results with real methods
walk like a champion
Two years ago I decided that I would dedicate myself to the task of becoming a professional strength and conditioning coach and began closely reading the works of the world-renowned Charles Poliquin… If you’re not already aware of him, he is a former strength and conditioning sensei to many past Olympic champions and his methods are much heralded within the industry.
Following on from this I decided to go full steam ahead by educating myself within his ‘Poliquin Group’ system which is where I also discovered the works of U.K. based coach Nick Mitchell, a student and friend of Charles Poliquin and one of the leading figures around the industry today
I greatly admire his hunger and no-nonsense approach to getting fast and often amazing results with his body transformation projects and definitely count him as a role model and an inspiration to my own aspirations going forward
I founded the Gold Medal Lifestyle to allow me to bring my years of knowledge, hard work and education aligned with my very own unique methods and systems to the forefront of the industry… My love of coaching and teaching that stem right back to my days in children’s soccer never left me and now I hope to bring the same level of enthusiasm to you in pursuit of your dream physique and lifestyle and help you to walk like a champion
No, of course we don’t have to compete in the 100m Olympic final against Usain Bolt or take on Roger Federer at Wimbledon to feel like a champion… but taking the mindset of greatness and the burning desire to crush your own personal goals from the moment you embark on your journey will certainly make you feel like one once you reach them
IT JUST REMAINS for me TO SAY A HUGE THANKs to you FOR your support and interest in THE ‘GML’ FAMILY!
