When I first started training I fell into the trap of believing I’d look like my idols in a matter of months. I ate the way they did, followed their programs & prioritised doing so over everything else in my life. - Here’s a photo of me 11 years ago & a photo of me yesterday. 11 years. I was 17 then & I’m 28 now. I’ve been doing this for a while. Maybe I could have done it more quickly if I’d taken drugs or not wasted my first few years of training/ dieting by not understanding how the process worked or tracking my macros. - Give yourself time. It will help you avoid serious disappointment. Building muscle, strength & your physique takes years, not months. Chase long term gratification rather than short term satisfaction like I did when I first started. Life is way easier when you accept things will take time rather than constantly being upset that you aren’t progressing at the rate you ‘think’ you should be.

2. Bec Chambers


Bec Chambers is the aforementioned Nick Cheadle's longtime partner and the other half of Paragon Strength & Performance's ownership. Refreshingly honest, down to earth, and relentlessly funny, Bec Chambers is a breath of fresh air in a community that can often be accused of taking itself too seriously. A competing powerlifter in her own right, Bec often talks about topics like beauty standards for women, eating disorders, and how those issues used to - and still does - affect her. Raw insight into an interesting and compelling personality.

Here are some of her social media stats:

Facebook 5247 likes
Instagram 122k followers
YouTube 1426 subscribers



1. Hattie Boydle


Hattie Boydle is an Australian that is one of the very best in her sport, and you probably haven't even heard of her. Hattie competes in the WBFF - World Beauty Fitness & Fashion - and was the 2016 WBFF Pro Fitness Model world champion! She has truly risen from her own ashes like a phoenix: Hattie Boydle has been very open about being hospitalised for anorexia at 16 years old, weighing only 26 kilos. Her transformation from her lowest point to her highest is more inspiring than her accomplishments, physique and workouts combined. Now she is an elite athlete, trainer and entrepreneur, but more importantly she is a role model that people struggling like her former self can look up to.
