Right Now, you might be wondering who I am...
…and why the fuck you should pay attention to anything I’ve got to say?
Which would be completely fair enough.
Let me start by saying this.
I never expected to be a Health Strategist (whatever the fuck that is 😬)
You see, I spent years working in corporate offices as a project manager – 🥱 I was good at it, but fuck me was it ever boring?
The boredom, the rules and restrictions, and ultimately the stress had me using some pretty unhealthy coping mechanisms to get myself through the day.
Until I got sick of my own shit & decided I couldn’t carry on like that.
So I started doing CrossFit in an effort to sort myself out. And it turned out I was pretty good at lifting stuff, which was handy.
I became addicted (surprise surprise) to feeling good & also helping other people feel good too.
Being a bit (ok a lot) of a geek, I got right into health and fitness and did all sorts of qualifications to develop my skills further.
I realised that if I combined my project management skills with my new qualifications, I was able to effectively help other people.
But there was a problem.
A big problem. You see working as a project manager for massive corporate companies allows you to earn pretty good money.
And starting your own business in the fitness industry?
A lot less so.
But then I got the break I needed. Literally.
I Broke My Back!!!
Which meant I had no choice but to give up the office life and look for other ways to earn a living.
Obviously, CrossFit was off the table as well for quite a long time, but I found I was able to help people with their nutrition from my sickbed, while off my face on morphine.
And so the Food Ninja was born!
Over time I realised that health was a whole lot more than what goes in your gob.
It’s also about other factors such as sleep, stress, behaviours and environment, to name but a few.
And so I threw myself into learning all about those to equip myself with a full arsenal of evidence-based Ninja weaponry that is now at your disposal (as well as over 8 years experience of helping people just like you be successful with their health).
I’m not your typical ‘nutritionist’.
I’m not a clean eating wanker, but neither am I an ‘If It Fits Your Macros, you can eat doughnuts all day and still lose weight’ type of wanker.
I don’t judge you from my ivory tower filled with macro-perfect Tupperware while posting pics of my abs to the ‘gram.
I’ve been through the mill with my health and I’m here to meet you wherever you are with yours.
Let’s get started.
