14/02/2018: valentines day

It’s Valentines Day hope you all had a great day. As a single dad and a single guy my day is very much geared to my daughter and then work. So busy day at Sharpbodies Personal Training seeing 3 new clients, 2 from London and 1 new client from Birmingham booked in for 2 hour training assessment.

Then straight to gym for a great session 45 minutes cardio and a mega heavy shoulder and arm workout! So no Valentines date for me oh no. Of to see my amazing 17 year old daughter in Cats at our local venue. She the most amazing lady so proud of her. A musical theatre student and has achieved more at 17 than me at 51.

So on this day remembering it’s the love and incredible support from my family that keeps me strong and makes me enjoy everyday. Blessed

09/02/2018: training hard focused

February flying by I’m hitting the gym harder than ever. I’ve been going over all my training and diet notes from all my previous competitions and now I’m upping my game. Now I have no training partner so I simply have to try fit my training in if I have a space between clients.

So my daily regime now is 45 minutes weights and 45 minutes daily cardio. This worked in the past for all my previous Bodybuilding success that’s exactly what I’m doing now. Not a fan of cardio for my previous shows, this time I’m creating a daily deficit in calories through cardio to keep my calories higher. Weights are the same. Hypertrophy rep range sets 30-45 seconds time under tension. I’ve upped the set volume because weights are slightly lighter. It’s training to complete failure hard heavy intense. What worked before works again!

A friend said to me ‘do you just train to Maintain now?’ My reply is no! I’m always building, improving, shaping and developing a better body. That never changes. Pushing to limits, taking all my supplement range, making sure diets perfect 24/7. I’m 52 this year I intend to be in the best shape of my life. Again!

08/02/2018: gym never lets you down

It’s 7 days a week as usual at Sharpbodies Personal Training. It makes me reflect on how much I enjoy my job. Hey it’s my 30th year full time in fitness industry helping people to change their lives.
It changed my life in 1984 when I walked into Pumping Iron gym in Brentwood for the first time. I wanted to change my body. It’s took years of hard work but I went from 135lbs to 200lbs in 5 years. Training with hardcore bodybuilders I knew what it took to become a Champion like them. It took me 9 years to compete and win my first show the London Bodybuilding Championships. This changed my life and confidence. I was now a Bodybuilding Champion. 6 months later I broke crushed both my feet in a horrific gym accident in April 1984. It put me out of action for 5 months finally walking in June on Crutches and guess what I started preparing for the NABBA British Championships. Then my girlfriend at the time leaves me! Story of my life. So I’m crawling round the gym training. On crutches.
So there’s Zero leg training at all, dieting hard preparing for the Britain! Crazy yes but I had a goal. 4 weeks before I start training legs and 4 weeks later I’m in Birmingham competing at the NABBA British Championships. I did it. I broke my legs. My girlfriend left me. But the gym was there for me and I did what I had to do to achieve my goals. The gym never lets you down while all around you goes wrong you can be a champion. The gym always been there for me what happening in my life it’s the best thing. It’s my life and I love it! Don’t let anything stop you don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done! It can!

06/02/2018: preparation

A busy Tuesday at Sharpbodies. Today is 9am until 10pm. That doesn’t mean I don’t get my own workout in though! My day started 6.30 college run for my daughter then I went straight to gym did 45 minutes of cardio before my first client. All today good I always prep the night before. Being prepared is essential if you want to get your diet right more importantly results!
So breakfast was 75g Oats, 50 grams Sharp Diet Protein, 1 banana, 10 grams Sharp BCAA! Job done and easy to prep the night before.
People often ask me are supplements really necessary? My answer always the same, your diet which is your good regime must be the main most important focus. Food brings results I The right ratios for you that’s the power of metabolic type dieting. Then ofcourse if your training like a athlete, hard heavy daily your going to need more nutrition, more vitamins minerals, Amino acids, and essential fats. Your body is a fine tuned machines it’s need the best fuel the right fuel!
So make sure your diet is right. Make sure your supplement program assists you in your goals. Advanced nutrition is better health, feeling and looking good.

05/02/2018: confidence

It always amazes me after 34 years Training I get the same buzz today as I did then. I started training to not only build my body but improve my confidence. Send esteem, liking yourself is maybe the most important factor for starting a fitness regime. Not to forget be healthy, staying fit and slim.
I look back now and think of all the opportunities and doors that opened up for me because of my hard work in the gym, building changing my body, increasing confidence. My world changed around me. Winning bodybuilding shows, doing tv and movie work in the 90’s. In 00’s getting my own tv shows on Active Channel and ideal world shopping Channel.
In 1984 I’d never dreamed these things where even possible. That’s the power of the gym and making every workout count towards your goals! I’ll help you achieve your goals to.

28/08/2017: motivation, motivation, motivation

A mega busy day at Sharpbodies Personal Training. The brentwood studio had 8 personal training clients today, which is a record for a bank holiday. Motivated clients.

This is my 30th year professionally helping people in the gym. This has led me to reflect this weekend on all the amazing things and people I've met and helped over the past 30 years. Personal Training now is a huge business and Sharpbodies as a company is on its 14th year. Before that for 14 years I owned the brentwood gym Bodyfitness previously the Pumping Iron gym which I bought in March 1988 for what was then a huge amount of money! Yes freehold property where expensive even in 1988.

My love for the sheer fact of helping people, the passion, the feel good feeling I get as strong now as it was in 1987. That year saw my first personal training instructors job, all for £3 an hour and a free gym membership! I'd gone from 126lbs in 1984 to 180lbs in 1987 and helping people from knowledge I'd gained from Champions in the gym, my qualifications my own study.

The point is now Sharpbodies Personal Training, Rehab and Sharp Nutrition Supplements have given and are giving me incredible success, income and happiness. Above all this is the same passion today excitement I had 30 years ago for £3 an hour. I'm hitting the gym harder and heavier than ever.

Over 30 years people rush into the fitness industry expecting money, fame and fortune without staying power, only to find that passion to be the best over years to be the best you can be. Stay focused be the best you can be. It took me 9 years to win a Bodybuilding show then compete for 15 years. My experience as a Personal Trainer now spans 30 years and people are travelling from all over the country and Europe to visit me. This blows my mind every day.

So, that's why I will be motivated tomorrow in the same way I was 30 years ago. Stay Sharp and visit Sharpbodies
