I’d been “weight training” for about 3 years prior to employing Ollie’s services. I naively thought I didn’t need to be taught how to exercise, not when I had it all written down in my trusty men’s health mag! So, armed with this endless supply of get rich quick workouts plus my protein shakes I bashed many a session out in my ghetto garage gym. Following to the letter their regimen. Reps, rest, refuelling the whole shhbang with the encouraging headlines …6pack in 6 weeks…arms like these in two months …etc etc floating in my head. 6 weeks came.. And went, yes I was seeing gains but definitely not what I’d been PROMISED! Stick at it stick at it I told myself, and I did ,though dreading each session bored while doing it, skipped workouts. I wasn’t getting very far to say the least.
Then I read an article about Olympic lifting, watched a few videos on YouTube and wondered how you would go about learning it.This is where Ollie comes in! After watching the how to videos and trying to emulate (massive fail) I decided to seek professional help! I’ve known Ollie for some years now so on the first “lesson” there was no need for the get to know you chat that normally precedes. Ollie’s teaching methods are excellent, he doesn’t rush through anything and has a pragmatic approach which makes complex moves like the clean and jerk a lot easier to digest piece by piece building up to the full picture once all the component parts are in place not before.
Extra to the Olympic lifting tuition Ollie also taught me exercise’s that would aid my Olympic lifts like the windmills. Throughout the training sessions I’d ask Ollie nutrition questions trying to remember them. A fountain of knowledge. After following Ollie’s advice reps, rest refueling the whole shhbang, I’m stronger, leaner and healthier. I now can’t wait to get to the gym enjoy the session and never miss one. All in all in thoroughly happy with my progress and results due to Ollie’s assistance, I would recommend him to anyone, money well spent.
