Hi I'm Damien.

I’ve always been sporty; I used to be a keen sprinter with a real passion for basketball.

If I didn't tell my own story, you may be fooled into thinking that I'm genetically blessed.

What got me here was a struggle back in 2009 when my weight ballooned to nearly 20st. I struggled with my weight in my early twenties due to a poor diet, lack of motivation and some personal issues.

Enough was enough and I decided to get my act together and joined the first ever PureGym in Leeds, which is where I succeeded in reducing my weight to 11st 6lbs. I looked unrecognisable to people following this, as a result of an epic transformation.

Throughout the years I've educated myself and developed a formidable, motivational mindset. I've used my own body as a test bed for theories and I know what it takes to succeed. I've a real interest in muscular development, how food interacts with the body and eating/training smart.

My aim is to use my body as a test bed for you on the bodybuilding stage and compete.

I will use my personal experiences, good or bad, and cascade them down to you so that you don't have to do the thinking. After all, I have been where many of you are now and I am well equipped to be able to give you the necessary support and guidance.

We will work together to conquer any demons, approach and overcome draw backs as a team and face plateaus head-on. After all, "Victory loves preparation".
