I have learned a lot about strength and how important it is to be doing the right sort of training for my sport also to stay healthy and positive about everything in life not just training
WHS: What made you contact WHS?
AP: I used to train in commercial gym week in week out not really training towards anything. I needed a challenge! I looked into various sports and different gyms around the area to see what they offered and I came across WHS and saw they offered strongman and thought yes I want to try that. Got in touch with Tom and started training.
WHS: What do you feel you have achieved at WHS?
AP: I have only been at WHS for 7 months now and in that time I have achieved a few things. The First is strength, my strength has increased massively in the few short months I have been there. Secondly I won my first strongman competition ‘Champs of the Future’. WHS helped me prepare physically and mentally for my competition and I won by ten points. Thirdly before I started at WHS I wasn’t very confident in myself but training with the people at WHS and in such a great atmosphere has made me a lot more confident.
WHS: What was your training like before WHS?
AP: It was standard and boring! I wasn’t really training for anything in particular all I did was look on different websites trying to find the next best training programme or lose fat get muscle programmes! It was the same thing week in week out no variation at all, it was totally pointless.
WHS: What’s your training like now?
AP: One word AWESOME! I love my training how it challenges me, pushes me beyond what I thought I was capable of. I also like the fact that at WHS they will find your weakness and help you work on it not just give you a standard programme for every person who walks through their door; each programme is unique and individual to that person. Also the variation of different exercise you are always learning new things and different techniques.
WHS: What is unique about the training we do?
AP: Everything! I have noticed that every programme is unique to every person, it is also explained to you if you have any questions and always has the science to back the training up, also that all the trainers at WHS strive to make their training better by always learning new things or going on courses to better their knowledge.
