Don’t Be So Serious

Hi everyone,

Maybe it sounds a bit strange coming from me not to be so serious, maybe it doesn’t…

Of course, it goes without saying I take my diet and training seriously. I’ll always put the work in and do whatever it takes to become a better example of myself than I was last year. But, I don’t take it so seriously that I become a miserable twat!

Thing is, I see a lot of young lads come and go in the gym who take themselves so seriously that they forget about the rest of their life. Balance isn’t just important, it’s healthy! When you’re in the gym it is game face on, all the way until the end. Same goes for your diet, prep your meals and stay on top of that. But, between all of this just chill out a bit and enjoy yourself.

The lifestyle I lead is really fun and rewarding, I wouldn’t have it any other way. However I don’t forget about my friends, wife, family and social life either. You can have balance if you allow yourself to.

It’s easy to become so obsessed that the gym is all you think about. It’s a great hobby and something you should really enjoy, but just make sure you’re spending just as much energy in other important areas of your life. Sometimes lads will ask me so many questions about everything I do like their life depends on it, I’m left thinking “f***ing hell mate, chill out.” It’s a journey against yourself, enjoy it for what it is!

Don’t be so serious about things all of the time, just be serious when it matters. Do you understand what i’m saying ??

PS comparing yourself against others will usually make you feel miserable, so always make yourself the competition. That’s a really good bit of advice that!

Who and What Inspires Me..

Hi all,

I hope you’re all doing well?

During this blog I wanted to take a moment to talk about who and what inspires me. I feel that this is an important subject to talk about. Even though some of us might think we have a strong mind set, it’s always good to have that person that gives us that little push when we need it, it’s usually someone who you look up to and gives you that little bit of belief and motivation.

I will start with what inspires me. To be honest that’s a pretty easy question for me to answer. Seeing people who face constant daily challenges, struggles and pain and still approaching life with  a big smile on their face and living their life to the best of their capabilities, is what inspires me the most. In understand their struggles and how hard it is to sometimes get out of bed and face the day, so when you can do all of this and still smile then you to me are a true inspiration.

I received this lovely message the other day from somebody who was in a car accident five years ago:

nice-message

Receiving messages like this on a daily basis,  is what inspires me. Knowing what I’m doing and achieving In life, whilst battling  Dystonia, is pretty cool and ensures me that my message is doing its work and getting out there.

Okay, onto the next question. WHO inspires me?? Would you say we have our own inspiration? Someone we look up to? Admire? Want to be like?

This might sound really cheesy and big headed but I would say I’m my own inspiration. I look at myself and I feel  proud. I am proud of myself most of all for keeping a positive  mind set, even through the hardest of days and gruelling treatments…

I dont want to sound like I’m trying to blow smoke up my own arse but I look back over my last eight years the struggles and the  dark times I’ve been through and I can’t believe the position how far  I have come and what I have achieved. I am proud of myself  and it feels good to say this.

I want to finish with the quote;

“Believe in yourself & you will be unstoppable.”

UFIT Drinks

Well we all know I’m a big gym user 💪 and after I train I need a good protein drink, to help with recovery and to help and muscle development.

Do we all use protein shakes? If so which brands do you use? Well I’m going to tell you what drink and what I take after training and why I think it’s the best on the market 🙌

After training I have a UFIT Drink 😋


I rarely big up products massively, unless I truly believe in their benefits and results,  but for me UFIT are one of the best on the market 🙌 where protein shakes are concerned. They are high in protein, no ADDED sugar and full of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. They taste just like a milkshake, so this makes them extra delicious.

They come in 2 different sized bottles , which are 50g or the smaller 22g protein bottles. You have a wide selection of flavours from chocolate, strawberry, banana, vanilla and coffee. 

You can buy yours either from UFIT Drinks website or from retailers such as Tesco, Sainsburys, Ocado, Holland & Barrett, One Stop, NISA, WHSmiths, Road Chef and many independent health food shops, gyms and vending machines nationwide.

Hope you enjoy the blog 😊
