Thomas' story

I first stepped foot into a gym at thirteen: inactive, unfit and unhappy. My first goal was to win cross country in my year at school - so I trained as hard as physically possible. I had no real knowledge of training or nutrition but I had an insatiable work ethic - spending almost 7 hours every Saturday and Sunday working out until I dropped. My goals grew as my hunger to achieve them grew.


Over the years I pursued every avenue to develop my knowledge: to train smarter; move with ever greater quality; work always harder and recover with maximal efficiency. This journey took me through Bodybuilding, Powerlifting and Strongman. At age 16 I explored Olympic Weightlifting and found a new passion. 


No other pursuit in life has inspired me like the pursuit of physical and mental excellence. This ambition is primal, within us all if we only listen. From this primal desire comes our thirst to expand our minds and to forcibly evolve our bodies. My journey is only accelerating faster every year - my true passion lies in becoming the greatest form of the self; and to exceed every limit I encounter.
