Health & Fitness Blog

Hey, I’m Alex. I used to work in the Sports Nutrition industry and I know it can be very confusing with so many supplements on the market to understand what they do. The aim of this fitness blog is to make things simple. I’ll be writing easy to understand descriptions of supplements and I’ll always finish with whether I recommend you taking it.

My Story – Becoming a Fitness Blogger

I think it’s important that you know a little bit more about me and my journey in sports, fitness and the gym, so here is a quick bio.

From an early age I competed in a number of competitive sports including football, tennis and swimming. I was always very active as a child and loved pushing myself physically. By the age of 14 years old I began to take more notice of my muscle definition and over the next couple of years I became more interested in how to build muscle.

I started going to the gym at the age of 16 years old. Everyday was arm day. I remember my PE teacher coming into the gym and saying, ‘Arm day again Alex?’ I used to think to myself, what does he mean ‘arm day again’, it’s all about arm day, I want to get big!

I’m sure some of you can relate to not really understanding the basics of building muscle when you start out at the gym, but the fantastic thing is that you can always seek to better yourself and improve your knowledge. Over the next few years I learned a lot and began to follow a more traditional bodybuilding programme focusing on a chest day, back day, shoulder day, arm day and (rarely) leg day. This is when I started to really see progress, putting on a significant amount of lean muscle mass (on my upper body at least).

What about now?

I am now 23 years old and work full time in marketing, but outside of work spend a lot of time learning more  about health and fitness. You really do never stop acquiring knowledge about muscle growth, whether it be how to improve your form or what is the best rep range for you.  I started this fitness blog to share what I have learned through working in the sports nutrition industry and through my own research. Hopefully you find my content useful, informative and start to make better sense of this crazy world of supplements and lifting!


Alongside my blog I now also write for BULK POWDERS, a UK based sports nutrition brand, on a variety of topics including supplements, nutrition and training.
