I help skinny guys, hardgainers, ectomorphs – whatever you wanna call yourself – build bigger, more athletic (and aesthetic) bodies.
My fitness journey began that way.
The scrawny guy on a quest for muscle.
I had an experience where a girl said she wouldn’t hangout with me because of how skinny I was.
And it sucked.
My confidence tanked. It dug into my self-esteem. I worried about what girls thought of me aesthetically.
Some negative beliefs started ruminating in my noggin:
“Girls find me weak and unattractive.”
Totally not the case. BUT it proved to be a good catalyst for action!
Because up until that happened, I was afraid of the gym.
I didn’t want to be seen lifting weights that my grandma would use in some aerobics class.
But that did it. I couldn’t take it. I wanted to put some meat on my damn bones.
So in that moment, I vowed to make a change.
“Screw it”, I thought. “I’m going to the f*cking gym.”
And so I did.
Walked in, tied my shoes, and shoved headphones in my ears.
I mostly just worked out on the sidelines of the running track.
That was far enough for me.
I was too afraid to try out free-weights in the common areas.
Especially approach the bench press or the squat rack…
But I kept going, every other day or so…
Eventually, I started lifting some dumbbells and using the machines.
And then I got a little more comfortable being there.
After some time, my training progressed and I came over my fear of approaching the bench press and squat rack (both I was terrified of).
Then I REALLY saw results…
I put on over 40 lbs of muscle!
And I learned a tonne of stuff along the way.
My quest had me consuming not only a shitload of calories, but information on fitness.
Eventually I became a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).
Over a decade I’ve been at this fitness, health and wellness stuff.
It feels good to share information that can transform others.
BUT what I noticed is that there is a lot of misinformation out there. What’s more, most fitness advice is geared towards fat loss. Or bodybuilder type training for guys who already have an average frame.
Not a lot of good info out there for us skinny folk trying to get bigger!
That’s why this site exists.
For the skinny guy (or girl) who wants to build muscle. To build a strong physique and feel more confidence.
It’s where I have the most experience.
And I’m setting out to help others do the same.
