Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have continuously proven I add value to anyone I come in contact within more detail you shall find out below sharing some of my life lessons, mindsets, positive outcomes and overcoming hard times, grinding through them is essential to anyone who wants to increase their mental status, will power and emotional empowerment.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I started like everyone with 0 followers, I just posted photos of what I liked (mainly supercars), then people seemed to catch on to my hashtags of supercars (which was my main focus at the time) back then (8 years ago). I was very much into the gym, so I started posting videos of me hitting PB’s, alongside progress pictures and videos of where I was to where I am now. In 1 week I had gained 6 thousand followers from just doing that, as I hashtag the appropriate words to boost engagement. Then I started getting messages ‘how can I cut like you, how can I get arms like you, what do I eat, drink, what do I have for breakfast, what does my workout weekly schedule look like, what does a working day look like for you’. All the random questions, so I thought I had to reply and take action. I then got my pt qualification and started doing this full time at a luxury gym near me, combining my clients in the gym area with online clients. Soon enough I had just built a reputation whereby people would come to me for advice and I will try my best to answer them especially with all my year’s experience (10years) in the gym environment. I think it is important you teach the correct and safe ways to work machines or know how to prioritize things on a day to day basis. I have helped a lot of people, still helping them now. Then obviously I still love supercars, I’d post a video on my story of me driving a Bugatti, Laferrari, e63s amg, 599gto, and by now people don’t think I’m pretentious or showboating because I’ve already been humbled with everyone coaching them online and helped others. Then they see me enjoying my life just like everyone else should with what they’ve got. So it’s been a rollercoaster of a mix mashup of things.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Listen to your body, don’t do what you won’t do on a bad day. That isn’t to say not to go to the gym, you want to realize if it is your mind or your body saying no. If you’re able to separate these two entities then you will be able to overcome the gym and consistency. For example, I used to work as a mechanic (+ sales training for the sales team), 8-5 daily 5 days a week then for the weekend went in for sales my sales training, then take pre-workout around 4:50 ready to arrive at my gym 20 mins since pre-workout was taken. In these times I learned if it was my body or mind that was tired, and due to a heavy daily workload and many tasks to manage, my mind was mainly tired even though I had a lot of physical tasks to do every day. Therefore when I went to the gym I knew that I could push through as it wasn’t my muscles that were depleted it was my mind due to the heavy logical tasks both main job as mechanic and sales training after gym in the week then physically in on sales on weekends. This is where I truly learned to separate my mind from my muscles. Then there is another term, ‘mind-muscle connection’ which simply means no swinging, use only your muscle to bicep curl that weight up to my feeling it and connecting your mind to the muscle through the activation process. Which is a whole other long story? Telling yourself ‘it can be done’ is a term I used which has helped my positive mindset along the way. Pushing through miniature goals. I would say, set small goals and achieve success through small steps more often than set a huge goal and feel like you’re miles away from it.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Thank myself for putting myself through it all telling myself I can, not ‘I can’t’ because ‘It can be done’.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Helping to change lives using my knowledge to empower other’s mindsets, perceive life and intentions better as to be successful in the gym and having a good physique is always controlled by your mind.. to be positive and take ACTION.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
It can be done, by doing what is necessary when you don’t feel like it. Pushing through pain and winning on the other side- sometimes you have to jump in the deep end to make learning.
