New blog - first post

So here we go!
We're starting fresh ... again!

I've ditched the last blog page because I wanted to start from the beginning and create something new. So this blog page will now be for my general ramblings - a bit of stuff about personal life, work, and whatever I feel like chatting about without it being too specific (not an article or training diary essentially).

So since I last posted anything on any of my pages a lot has changed.

East Grinstead RFC is no more. Well the club exists, but I think in 2 more years that won't be so. Gavin has left, taking everything G-Force with him including the gym kit and my contract.
So now I am back working at Reach Fitness London and loving it. Picking up new clients and coaching classes again.
I am also currently awaiting my contract to become Head of S&C for Esher Rugby! This I am really excited about and really can't wait to get started, it's going to be absolutely immense and a huge challenge for me but one that I really want to get into and smash it! Having the chance to program my own entire pre-season and in-season is what I've wanted to do for a long time now so I finally have that opportunity.

Outside of that things are also going well. Rachael and I are living together in East Grinstead in a lovely one bed flat, we've got a holiday planned and things are going good.
I am also continuing the Weightlifting journey, with my first competition set to be on my 27th Birthday, the 4th of June, at Bethnal Green Weightlifting Club. This is not a BWL sanctioned meet but still has those same rules so I have ordered a singlet etc.
Last Friday (13th May) I hit 3 PBs in one session; 180kg front squat, 100kg snatch & 123kg clean and jerk. So things are progressing nicely. I am now also down to a lighter weight of 107kg and holding which is where I want to be so that I can compete at 105kg category.

So yeah - things are good and looking up. Big things on the horizon and looking forward to what's in store.

Over and out.
