When I initial met Gerard McKay he was wearing a flowery dress, a bra, face paint and aviator sunglasses.
It was in the dance music tent at the T in the Park festival in July 2012. I didn’t know irrespective of whether to shake his hand or KISS him!
Raving // dressing up // drinking // partying was normal behaviour for this 20-year-old joker/celebration animal.
That is why I was totally SHOCKED when I initial saw him lifting weights in the health club a couple of years ago.
<<IN MY HEAD>> “Surely, he’s not essentially attempting to appear just after his physique for once….??”
<<THEN I’M THINKIN>> “Maybe he’s nevertheless p*ssed from the weekend and staggered in right here by accident (wearing shorts and a t-shirt)…???”
I was proper the initial time – Gerard began lifting weights mainly because he wanted to get in decent shape.
Dilemma was, he struggled massive time to add muscle or see any outcomes from his efforts. Fundamentally going by means of the motions at the gym….and receiving nowhere.
Then he asked if I’d coach him by means of my ‘Leaner, Stronger, Better’ programme.
Here’s What Occurred Following The Initially 30 Days….

“Within three weeks I began seeing modifications in my physique. Initially with my shoulders becoming additional rounded, then I began creating a V-shaped back.
“My brother and mates began saying that they had been seeing a actual distinction as well.
