When I first started training in 2005, I was just like everyone else. 

I read tons of articles and tried to apply it to my workouts and training the best I knew how. I took the supplements the 'gurus' recommended. I trained 7 days per week. I thought I ate healthy because I avoided fat at all costs... I hired expensive trainers to try and get lean, build muscle and get the six pack abs every one wants.

But after 100's and 1000's of workouts, countless protein shakes and weigh ins the results weren't showing. 

In fact, after 4 years training I had only gained 10 lbs of muscle.

I was stuck. 

I knew the physique I wanted but didn't know how to get it. 

Was I genetically incapable of getting the lean, muscular physique I desired? The physique you see on Ryan Reynolds or Hugh Jackman?

Then something incredible happened.

With the help of study and advice, I lost 10.6kg and reached 7.8% body fat in the space of just 8 weeks.

I had achieved the fitness model body I'd always wanted.

It was at this point that people began asking me for training and nutrition advice. Questions like:

  • How to get the lean, muscular and shredded fitness model physique
  • How to get below 10% body fat
  • How to build lean muscle quickly
  • How to get six pack abs fast
  • How to build muscle without the fat
  • What supplements to take to accelerate results
  • What shortcuts they can take to get lean and shredded faster

In short: they wanted the lean "Hollywood" physique without becoming bulky or oversized like traditional bodybuilders - the physique I was able to achieve for myself and knew that I could help others achieve without making the same mistakes that I did.

Instead of guessing their training, ab exercises and nutrition plans, with my help now people could follow a specific program made specifically for the lean, muscular, shredded physique.

After my first clients began seeing results, I knew I had to reach more people and help them reach their fitness goals faster.

As a result, I launched my 12 Week Ripped & Shredded Program - the program for men to build lean muscle, lose fat and get six pack abs at the same time.
