My first contact with Damon was when he
replied to one of my emails.
“I need a kick up the arse and you sound
like the perfect person to do just that” or
something along those lines.
At our first weigh in he came in at 19st
That’s some pretty good going at 5’10”.
So where was Damon at before he started his
8 week program at the studio?
Shit mood all the time.
(these are his words, not mine)
Well it’s not often that I meet someone
with a sweeter tooth than me, but this guy
was a chocolate fiend.
He even had a sponsored Mars Bars eating

Need would you believe.
I don’t think he’ll mind me saying that

‘Pah! Dehydration and glycogen’ – someone
scoffed at me the other day.
Well he was drinking 2 litres of water a
day and had carbs every day too so- thanks
for your input.
I got an email from Damon a few weeks into
the program when I asked how he was doing.
“The training you guys give is second to

If I’m not doing something right I know
that someone will correct me . . .
This has been such a learning curve . . .
nothing compares to this experience!”

So in total, in 8 weeks, Damo lost 3st
Now I’m not saying everyone will get the same results.
I’m just showing you what’s possible if you put the work in.
