BodyBuilder - Cutting through the bulls**t in the industry since 2010
After boxing from age 9-17 and constantly starving myself, training multiple hours per day 5-6 days per week, I knew there had to be a better way to lose fat without feeling S**T, eating bland foods and having no social life. This was the initial spark for me and 10 years later I have gone from 130lbs starving myself to currently 220lb with abs and enjoying life eating foods I enjoy, socialising and drinking wine on the weekend with the mrs etc.
What was once an interest in just being able to maintain a lean physique without being miserable turned into an obsession to packing on as much muscle as possible, whilst maintaining abs and enjoying life.
Over the last 10 years in the industry my knowledge has expanded greatly and 100’s have clients have benefited from this over the years, which led to a passion for helping others, seeing them succeed, feel more confident in themselves and looking damn good naked!
I now compete in bodybuilding as I enjoy testing the limits of my own body and I also coach competitors too, but for what I call my “normal” clients they don’t need such a process and that is why I get results with them without suffering, starving themselves, cutting out foods they enjoy and being a hermit with no social life. F**K that life is for living not being miserable!
So whether your wanting to step on stage, increase your strength or get that beach body you’ve always wanted, together we can get the results you desire!

How we met!
Working in the uniformed services Kirsty started to go over the top with her fitness, believing that cardio was the answer to everything, she pushed her body to the point of no return which eventually led to her being Bulimic. During her recovery she met Shaun, who introduced her to the world of lifting, bodybuilding and ultimately gave her the tools and knowledge to not only help herself, but adapt to others.
Since they met Shaun has coached and educated Kirsty from the ground up transforming her thoughts from cardio bunny to lifting queen in the process transforming her physique leading her to winning her first shows as a bikini competitor as well as British and European final invitations.
Over the years Kirsty has undergone numerous courses and training regarding mental and physical health, eating disorders, peer support, social sciences, nutrition and of course personal training.
