I have been involved in the fitness industry for just over 20 years, with my primary passion growing up being football. I was playing at a competitive level until an injury to my ACL forced me away from the pitch and into the gym. At first, it was part of my rehab and keeping myself mentally/physically active. After a few months of training I caught the ‘bug’ and switched to training fulltime. Over the years I started to see significant increase in muscle mass and strength. Through my training journey I learnt a lot about different training methods, techniques and nutrition required to get a desired physique. I enrolled myself into various nutrition and fitness trainers’ courses so I could learn and understand more about the science behind the Body.
Through the years of training journey, I managed to get into the best shape of my life and on October 2014 I decided to enter the ‘Miami Pro fitness UK’ fitness model competition where I finished 2nd place in my category and received my pro status with the federation. It was my first time competing for the experience but came away with such a buzz from being on stage that it gave me the confidence to compete again. Fast forward 6 years and I managed to compete in 10 Bodybuilding Competitions nationally and internationally. Although I have managed to secure many titles in these competitions, my most memorial moment was securing the UKBFF (United Kingdom Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation) Welsh Championship title in 2016.
Everyone knows that training is a big part of achieving an appealing physique, but along with it, you need the commitment, adequate rest, the right nutrition and supplementation. For me this is where I am very grateful to be part of the JBC family, who continuously work hard to support and guide me through my training journey. With their nutritional and supplement support I am looking to continue my fitness journey and be a positive role model for others coming up in the fitness industry.

The centre was back to his explosive self to begin the 2018/19 season, but injury struck once again as he suffered a hamstring tear against Ulster in only the second match of the campaign.
