Body transformations: Michael Black

Michael Black before and after

Before, during and after

Last week’s epic transformation was epic in length. We even had to cut down a lot of it. This week’s is the opposite.

So if you have 2 minutes (you’ve clicked on here so we are assuming you do), read this great body transformation.

Michael Black is this week’s focus but if you think you have something to offer then let us know.

Here is Mr Black’s story.

What is your fitness background?

I currently study NC Sports & Fitness hoping to further my knowledge and to one day become a gym instructor or personal trainer.

Why did you decide to transform your body?

I always ate rubbish during most of my teenage years and one day I decided enough was enough. I joined the local gym to lose weight and become a healthier person.

What your training was like?

I trained 6 days a week running 4 miles per day on the treadmill, plus road runs around where I lived at the time. Also this is when I started experimenting with weight training.

What was your diet like?

I ate porridge in the morning before going to the gym and ate plenty of chicken throughout the day. I cut an awful lot of carbs out of my diet to trim down fast. I also consumed 2 Matrix anabolic protein shakes throughout the day.

How has your lifestyle changed

I feel more active and have a desire now to get up and get things done in life now. Exercise has definitely changed my life for the better!

What challenges did you face?

I haven’t came across any injuries as such, although I have been badly ill a few times with viruses/bugs which took me out the gym for 2 weeks at a time which was a pain to get back where I left off in the gym.

How do you feel about your transformation?

I’m really happy about the work I have put in and can clearly see good results from this. I feel I can achieve much more when I put my mind to something now.

What are your plans for the future?

My plans for the future are to progress onto HNC/HND and complete my education in college. Then I can apply for jobs to work in local gyms and maybe in years to come, I will have my own personal training business.
