How do you feel is the best way to maintain a social life without hampering your results in the gym?
Always make time for the people you love, when close to a show this does diminish, as my time is very limited. Otherwise I get all of my training over and done with first thing in the morning. I am a very regimented, routine person. My life is planned out by the hour.
What do you know now that you wish somebody had told you when you first started training?
Nothing, I wouldn't change my journey, as going through it all yourself is the best way to learn.
Always be positive and focus on your journey. Surround yourself with people that will only bring you higher and seek advice from those who either have experience with people who have gone in the direction you would like to go or those that practise what they preach.
Have fun and let it become your lifestyle, but not something that takes over your life.
