As a young boy growing up fairly overweight, becoming a personal trainer wasn’t something I ever thought about. After joining the Police Force at 20 years of age, I can look back now and say that I was obese, and definitely smoked too much. Realising that something needed to change – I began working on my eating habits and signed up to join a local Martial Arts school. Quitting smoking was my first goal, which I achieved determinedly only a month after joining the club.
This was certainly a turning point in my life resulting in me losing weight which made me feel more confident. Working my way up through the Karate gradings, I went on to take part in various tournaments in both Malta and abroad, and moved up successfully through the ranks, achieving the prestigious rank of a 3rd dan black belt. I own my own Karate Club, where I have been instructing for the past 10 years.
In 2018 I qualified as a personal trainer, during which time I also discovered Bodybuilding. In 2019 I stepped on stage for the first time, competing in Masters Bodybuilding – and place 3rd. Falling in love with weight lifting and bodybuilding, I knew that I wanted to go on and help others. By becoming a qualified personal trainer, I can help others set and reach their fitness goals.
