When and why did you get started?

For me the fitness journey began when I was about 11 years old. I started pumping out pushups and sit-ups in my room every night in hopes of putting on some muscle. I was an extremely skinny kid and I heard about it from everyone. When I was 14 I hit the gym for the first time and I was instantly hooked, after that I got my membership and started going everyday after school. A few months later I knew for sure that I wanted to pursue a career in fitness so I then studied my Cert 3 in fitness through school, which only took my about 2-3 months to complete, straight after that I did my personal trainer certificate which took me the same amount of time. By then I had learnt a lot about the fitness industry and I knew that being successful would be a challenge so to better myself I kept continuing my studies, now at nearly 17 years of age I have a fair number of certifications and have left school to be a trainer.


My Nutrition schedule is fairly strict but I do have 1 cheat day a week where I don’t worry that, much about what I eat. But apart from that I always try to get in 6-7 meals per day and I try to meat all my macro and calorie needs. My current diet looks like this:

• Meal 1 – Whey Protein Shake
• – 6 egg whites, 1 cup oatmeal, 1 tsp peanut butter
• Meal 2 (Pre-workout meal) – 1 can tuna, 2 slices whole wheat bread, 1/4 avocado
• Meal 3 – Whey Protein Shake
• – 8 oz. chicken breast, 1 cup white rice, 1/4 avocado
• Meal 4 – 8 oz. salmon, 1 cup brown rice, 1/4 avocado
• Meal 5 – 8 oz. chicken breast, 1 cup brown rice, avocado
• Meal 6 – Casein Protein Shake


What are your Goals?

My goals for the future are to be a very successful personal trainer and fitness model. I also want to develop a physique that’s appealing to everyone. The sort of physique that’s kid’s say “I want to look like that when I grow up”.
Apart from that I want to change peoples lives for the better and help everyone from the average person to celebrities achieve their goals.
I have achieved a lot so far, so there is nothing stopping me from going all the way.

Workout Routine?

I like to constantly mix up my training, every few weeks I will do a different routine, and I regularly mix things up with intensity techniques such as drop sets, supersets, pyramid sets etc. But one of the best splits I have used so far looks like this:

I call it the 6-12 routine, so you do 4 sets of each exercise with the first 2 sets using 6 reps of heavy weight and the last 2 sets using 12 reps of a lighter weight.
The 6-12 routine.

Day 1- Chest & triceps

Incline Bench press
Incline Dumbbell fly’s
Close-grip bench
Triceps dips
Skull crusher
Seated chest press

Day 2 – Legs & shoulders

Day 3 – Back & biceps

[Reverse grip Barbell row

Seated dumbbell curls

Where does your motivation come from?

A lot of my motivation comes from the negativity of others, there is always people out there who feel threatened by you, who don’t like what your doing or who don’t agree with what your doing. When I meet or get a negative vibe from people like this it pushes me harder than ever. In the gym I think about the day that I succeed and achieve all my goals, the day that I prove everyone wrong who ever told me that I can’t do this or I wont do that, this is what makes me push so hard through my sessions.

Another thing that motivates me is my huge desire to succeed and be the absolute best, I don’t just want to be a personal trainer, I want to be the best personal trainer, and I’m willing to sacrifice and do whatever it takes to get to where I want to be. This is the reason I have achieved my physique and all the certifications I have at this age.
