I contacted Clean Health in late April after searching across Sydney for gyms & coaches who specialised in competition preparation/personal transformations. I knew friends who had trained at Clean Health before & all had positive reviews about their experience. Within a week of initially contacting them I was booked in to meet my new coach Nick Moen. Entering the gym for the first time, I was blown away. The high standard of equipment available & professionalism of the entire staff set the standard.
I met Nick on the 1st of May 2013 & discussed that I wanted to compete for the first time in a Men’s Fitness category at an INBA competition in September, which was roughly 5 months away. He discussed what to expect of the next few months & what level of commitment he would expect in return. Despite considering myself a dedicated “gym rat”, it was clear the standard level of conditioning at Clean Health was much higher than the average gym. Nick then took me through a thorough testing process including 12 point BioSignature (body fat testing) & structural assessment, it was clear this process was highly individualised – it had been 3 sessions before we even trained!
The results of the BioSignature were shocking, I was 94.5kg & 18.9% body fat. Despite considering myself relatively in shape & eating well, it was clear we had our work cut out for us. Nick made some radical changes to my diet which started the night of our first meeting & I didn’t look back.
Each month I was given new meal plans & workouts depending on the goals for the month. Every session I knew Nick would push me to my limits. Every rep, every set was timed & accounted for. He was helpful in showing me correct lifting techniques for various exercises whilst explaining the importance of lifting tempo, reps, sets & exercise selection for achieving new gains. He was always reliable, never missed a session & would always to any questions I had throughout the entire time.
Out of the gym, my education on nutrition grew each week. It was amazing to see how quickly my body began to transform as my diet was based on my individual requirements. Not only did I become physically stronger, I became more positive, discovered new found energy levels & recovered quicker than ever.
After 21 weeks of intense dieting & training, I completed my goal of competing in Men’s Fitness category at the INBA State Championships at Castle Hill on 29th September. My final BioSignature results showed that I was 81.0kg & 9.7% body fat. A total weight loss of 13.5kg & dropping half my body fat. I got in the best shape of my life & have Nick to thank for his time, knowledge, dedication & guidance in making this a reality.
I highly recommend Nick Moen & the team at Clean Health for anyone who is interested in transforming their body, regardless if you plan to compete on stage. The knowledge I now have about nutrition, exercise & supplements, but also what works for my own body has become invaluable. I will continue to apply this into my normal life to maintain my health. I thoroughly enjoyed every day of my transformation. I will definitely be returning to use Clean Health in the future.
