Failure is the beginning of success

My day to day occupation is trading the financial markets and teaching people how to become effective at making a secondary income that may one day become a primary one like myself.

I have always been involved in sport whether it was playing tennis for my county Yorkshire through my early teens or rugby and cricket for the local clubs and university. Through my 20’s and 30’s i took up boxing and various martial arts. The devil in me was always my diet and alcohol. The tender age of 37 News Years Eve sat on Bondi Beach I realised I’d had enough and wanted to feel good and look good. 31/12/16 the beginning of Trade & Train.

I decided to enter a physique competition, WBFF in Nov 17 just 11 months after I decided i needed to get into shape, the current physique was definitely not one to be desired. It shows what can be done when you follow a plan, have discipline and commitment, I placed top 6 in my first competition. I was at least 10+ years older than my nearest competitor. This gave me huge confidence to try again, unfortunately I had never been so lean and didn’t understand reverse dieting or knew about it and gained a massive 25kg over a 2 month rebound. I managed to get first callout at WBFF May 2018. Being honest this was a personal let down for me as I had set my sights on a my pro card. I’ve taken a year off to focus on my diet and off season ready to come back forĀ  the WBFF April / May 2019 show nothing other than my pro card will be enough.

2019 goals, build my fitness brand alongside my trading the two go hand in hand Discipline, Commitment to follow a plan…. Its never to late to start !!

I’m enrolling on a couple of Nutrition courses to offer a better and accredited to service ready for when i start in 2019. The objective is to help 1m people achieve happiness in themselves by having the right association with food and exercise. This in turn will help create the aesthetic look they desire.
