For years I lived as an overweight individual and couldn’t understand what I was doing wrong. I was exercising regularly but actually gaining weight. It was a frustrating time in my life. It wasn’t until I was running up some stairs and felt the uncomfortable bounce of my stomach that I realized I had become something I never thought I would be – the guy hiding his stomach under baggy clothes. My physical appearance and conditioning made me feel depressed. I knew at that moment I needed to turn my life around. I read countless books, articles, and medical journals about nutrition and health, and I also started looking for more efficient ways to exercise that could replace the traditional cardio I had always done. I soaked up all the information I could get my hands on. With my newfound knowledge on nutrition, an open-minded approach to exercise, and a renewed level of motivation, I was able to change my life and enjoy the benefits of being at my ideal weight and optimal health.
As I developed my new lifestyle around eating healthily and exercising, it became very apparent that helping others to achieve their fitness goals would bring me a deep fulfillment.
I grew up as a youth in Jamaica, finished university in England, and eventually made my home in Japan. My travels around the world introduced me to many different people with many different health and fitness needs. During my time in Japan I achieved my health and lifestyle goals and it was through this experience that I realized a gap in the local fitness industry. I qualified as a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist and worked hard to start the first foreign-owned boot camp in the central Japan area. I’ve worked with hundreds of people wishing to make changes in their lives and I’m very proud to have helped them achieve their fitness goals with the same knowledge and expertise I benefitted from.
Over time my knowledge and experience with health and lifestyle change deepened and creating the MyDiet180 program was the next logical step. MyDiet180 was designed to have a wide influence and to help people from all over the world, not just those in my boot camps, turn their lifestyles around and enjoy being at their ideal weight.
