About Max

Hi, my name is Max and I really enjoy lifting weights. I created this website in the hopes that I could inspire other people to try weightlifting.

With almost 2 years of experience, my goal is to be able to share all my knowledge with you, so that you can start off strong in your lifting career.

When I was younger, I wasn’t anything like I am today. Over the past few years I have changed massively. I’d like to share a little bit of a background on who I am and my story.

My evenings were typically spent gaming for hours and eating lots of junk food. I was not happy, in fact, I was quite depressed. At school, I would mess around and get into trouble a lot. I hated myself, and I channelled that hate onto others. I was a bully.

At some point around the age of 16 I decided to make a huge change, step WAY out of my comfort zone. I got a gym membership. Immediately, I began to change for the better. I can quite confidently say it was the best decision of my life. It sent me on a path to bettering myself.

The way I saw it was in terms of gaming. I asked myself, “Why don’t you upgrade your real life character, isn’t that infinitely more fun?”. I would spend hours and hours upgrading my digital character and it meant nothing.

It was incredibly difficult at first but quickly, I gained momentum. I was now going to the gym almost everyday. I loved it. The feeling of bettering yourself is massively greater in real life than in a game.

The reason I started this website is to open the eyes of others. To let them see their potential and get after it. I never want anyone to feel the way I did. That is my main motivation for helping others.

Anyways, thats why I care. It’s lovely to meet you and I hope you enjoy the experience.
