Does This Sound Familiar?

You can’t help but feel like the weekend passes too quickly.

As Monday morning arrives and you reluctantly drag the covers off, make your way to the bathroom and step expectantly onto the scales.

A sense of dread overcomes you as you glance at the number, you didn’t exactly stick to your calories this weekend and it shows.

You jot it down hoping to claw back some of your progress over the week.

Back in the bedroom you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror…

Turning to face it, you hope to see something the scales couldn’t show, but no matter how hard you look your stomach doesn’t get any flatter and muscles don’t get any bigger.

Feeling fed up, you wonder if it’s time to just accept you won’t get the body you want.

To be honest you’re feeling pretty tired of it all;

  • Tired of the lack of progress

  • Tired of the restrictive eating

  • Tired of the long daily workouts

  • Tired of the fact that none of it seems to be working

You feel stuck in this endless cycle of strict weeks and wild weekends only to end up in exactly the same, stupid, fucking place you were last week.

You swear you’re on the verge of giving up, reluctantly willing to accept that you’re destined to stay as you are.

You even feel yourself beginning to believe that getting the body you dream of is a luxury reserved for people other than you.

If There Is Even A Hint Of A Yes In Your Answer Then You’re In The Right Place.

Hi, I’m Theo, the creator and writer here at Lift Learn Grow.

I'm a Personal Trainer, Kickboxing Instructor and Fitness Blogger who loves to read, travel, pet dogs and drink far too much coffee.

Before starting this blog, I spent a long-time over-training, under-eating and hating how I looked.

I grew up devoid of body confidence and sure that fitness was the key to changing how I felt about myself.

With this in mind, I tried everything;

  • I gave up sweets, sugar and the foods I liked

  • I stopped eating carbs after 6pm, only ate carbs after workouts and stopped eating carbs altogether

  • Gave up drinking alcohol

  • Trained every day pushing myself to exhaustion and the point where I stopped enjoying exercise

None of it worked.

Eventually I got fed up and decided to learn what would work for me.

I retrained as a Personal Trainer and began to reeducate myself about fitness.

I started training 3 days a week, including the foods I love in my diet and having the occasional social drinks.

It was a slow process but over the years I began to make the progress I wanted to see. I felt happier, performed better and began seeing results…

But more than this I learnt how to love the process, to no longer hate how I look but enjoy every step I take in changing my mindset and body.

I'm not at the end of my fitness journey but I realised I’m not the only one in this position and if I could help even one person by creating this website I needed to do it.

How Can I Help You?

You're here because you WANT to build muscle, lose fat and look great naked.

You're here because you WANT to feel confident and comfortable in your body.

You’re not here because you want to sacrifice your social life, weekend drinks and the foods you like (life is too short for that shit).

You’re not here because you want to stop living your life.

What if I told you that you don’t have to.

You don’t have to:

  • Give up the foods you like

  • Spend hours doing cardio

  • Train for 2 hours every day

  • Take numerous supplements

What if I showed how you can build the body you want and live your life? 

No strings attached.

You can:

I’m here because I want to share not only what I've learnt but what I am learning (it never stops).

I'm committed to helping you succeed and achieve more than you thought was possible.

It doesn’t matter if you want to get abs for the beach or just, for once, to feel confident and proud of your body. By working together, you WILL reach your goal.

I’m here because I know what it feels like to spend late nights trawling the internet looking for the answers but not finding any.

I know what it feels like to want results that you just can’t seem to get.

To hide behind clothes and feel really damn self-conscious.

It feels like nothing changes…but it can change.

I’m living proof that you just have to take that first step, to trust the process and follow through.

If you do I promise it will change your life it more ways than you can imagine.
