I started training religiously when I injured my knee playing football, I was a keen footballer up until the age of 21 and played for various semi professional teams representing my London borough at various tournaments. While injured I started my rehabilitation programme what involved strength training, as I got stronger my passion for the weights room grew at the same rate and since then I never looked back! I am now an iron addict!!
I didn't find the level of discipline required outside of the gym for example - nutrition & lifestyle when I first started, I thought if I just lift I will have the shape I saw on the magazines but that was not the case and I have since learnt the art of discipline in my lifestyle.
Set daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals, write down the main reasons you want to change when you start out and make an emotional attachment to them. Reward yourself with the things you love when you hit targets and never give up!
Anyone who knows me will tell you I am a house music lover, I love all types of house music, deep, minimal, tech & soulful they all get my adrenalin pumping when I'm training!
I think of where I come from, the tough times I have faced and where I want to go in the future!
I plan my nutrition every Sunday for the week ahead, being a model & actor I have shoots and castings to attend so I programme my training and nutrition accordingly manipulating carbs, protein and fats to fit my macros for the week!
I am most proud of the mentality I have towards life! Mentally, physically and emotionally I have built strength and that for me is more important than any aesthetics.
I choose to stay healthy all year round, I wouldn't class myself as a bodybuilder but a health and fitness professional, the only time I restrict my body is pre-competition to get that extra tight and dryness to my look.
I prefer LISS due to my body type but I do shock my system with HITT and swimming conditioning once per week.
High protein, high fat, low carb with a carb load when required.
That's a hard question because they are so different! But I do choose to like athletes who have a philosophy to their training and also those with a spiritual side. I like to see depth as both can also be all about your look but I believe developing the inside is just as important.
