Health & Fitness Blog

Hey, I’m Alex, a qualified Personal Trainer and published fitness writer.

I used to work in the Sports Nutrition industry for leading sports nutrition brand Myprotein. I know it can be very confusing with so many supplements on the market to understand exactly 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. In addition, I’ll be offering training and nutrition advice.

Why trust Supplement Secrets?

I am a qualified Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor having achieved my Level 3 Fitness Diploma. To obtain this qualification I had to go through an extensive course covering training, nutrition and general health. This qualification added to my knowledge and means I know what I’m talking about!

Alongside my blog I have also been writing for BULK POWDERS since August 2018 and have had a number of articles published on the sports nutrition websites blog section, The Core. I have written on a variety of topics for this UK sports nutrition brand covering topics around supplements, nutrition and training.

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 24 years old and work full time in marketing, but outside of work I 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, what are the best exercises for you or how much protein you need to eat to build muscle.

I started this fitness blog to share what I have learned through working in the sports nutrition industry, becoming a qualified Personal Trainer 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!
