PetePete fast tracked his training and nutrition to build a fantastic physique after years of spinning his wheels.
Pete, a NHS doctor, has always had an avid interest in sport and exercise. However, he always found it hard to decipher right from wrong when searching for advice on how to best structure training and nutrition. This left his training, and his results sporadic.
Since contacting us, and since having his training and nutrition taken over by a Pioneer Performance coach, he has been able to fast track his progress.
"On my own in the same timeframe I think I could have achieved about 50% of the results I do with Pioneer. For me time is my most valuable resource, with Pioneer I can really maximise every gym session and my diet to make the most out of each week whether its gaining muscle or losing fat."
What were your expectations and motivations when starting Personal Training?
I’d tried to gain muscle a few times on my own both for sport and to look better generally. I’d had some success but it was sporadic and there is so much information online that it was really difficult to sift through and identify exact what I needed. I was looking for someone with experience and knowledge to highlight the important bits and discard the useless “bro – science” advice.
Did you have any hesitations or uncertainties prior to starting your journey?
I have a heavy background in various sports, some of which were at a high level (international etc) and I wasn’t sure whether having a PT would actually make that much of a difference as I know how to push myself and train hard. I think people get different things from it, my biggest weaknesses were my diet and knowledge of weight training programs. I already knew how to train hard however needed guidance on what exercises were right for me and how to structure everything.
What was your lifestyle and nutrition like before starting?
I was already fairly sporty and did lots of exercise although it wasn’t really strength focused. Being completely honest, my nutrition was a shambles. I was under-eating & had barely any protein in my diet – I knew this aspect of my lifestyle was going to take some work.
How has your diet and lifestyle changed?
My diet had a complete revamp, I eat probably around double what I used to and a significantly higher protein content. Still now its a struggle some days but I feel so much healthier for it. Being honest, my lifestyle hasn’t changed that much, but I now feel like I have more of a result to show for my healthy lifestyle! t I feel more confident in how I look and I feel healthier. But like I said, i’ve always enjoyed training and doing sport. Undergoing this journey has been another branch of that.
What was the hardest “bad habit” to kick during this process?
For me it was definitely diet, I admit it’s still not perfect, but it’s leagues better than what it used to be. People are right when they say the results from training are built in the kitchen!
What have you learned since working with your coach?
Ive learned alot more about manipulating my diet to achieve the goals I want, whether that’s gaining muscle or losing fat. I’ve also learned alot about weights programs and progessive overload.
What would you say to anyone who is on the fence about working with Pioneer Performance?
On my own in the same timeframe I think I could have achieved about 50% of the results I do with Pioneer. For me time is my most valuable resource with Pioneer I can really maximise every gym session and my diet to make the most out of each week whether its gaining muscle or losing fat.
