Effectively he ‘Revived Stronger’ and in doing so developed a huge passion to help others do the same.

Now a competitive natural bodybuilder with his best performance to date being a top 5 placing in the UKDFBA international finals in 2017. In addition with over 10 years in the gym and more than 5 years coaching experience he uses this in combination with the latest science to drive results.

Coach

Ryan Solomon

Ryan is currently studying to earn his Master’s degree in Exercise Science at the University of Northern Iowa and holds a Bachelor’s in Exercise and Movement Science. He was more or less forced into this lifting weights stuff for sports in High School, and then it developed into something he couldn’t imagine his life without. Being consistent in the gym, changing his physique, becoming stronger, all of these things trickled into every area of his life, completely changing it for the better.

This is what he wants to help people do for themselves. Not only change the way they look through lifting weights but, as corny as it may sound, help them change their entire life for the better.

Coach

Harry Smith

Harry lives his life by a mantra: “Honesty, always. Better, together. Science matters, and so do you. No detail is too small.“

From fat kid, to skateboarder, to avid gamer / Netflix connoisseur before settling on Natural Bodybuilding. Harry has always had a deep appreciation for the Golden Era physiques of old.

Wanting to replicate these physiques is what led Harry on a journey of discovery through just about every internet forum, qualification, course and publication out there related to muscle growth, Finally leading him to the coach he is today.

Harry loves nothing more than having his opinion challenged and changed through an intense debate. The nittier and grittier, the better. Want to get in his good books? Make sure your critical thinking skills are up to scratch.
