About Stephen Arnold

Have you ever felt like you're spinning your wheels with dieting, training but not getting results?

Well that was me, I was prepping for a BodyBuilding show years ago and I was doing absolutely everything I could.
Training twice per day, eating all the right foods, working hard.
But my results were so slow.
It was driving me crazy, I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong.
This painfully slow experience led me to understand the importance of overall health.
My training and nutrition were bang on, no one in the world was trying harder than me but my results were slow because everything else was out of balance.
My digestion, sleep, stress and hormones were out of balance.
This is what chiseled out my coaching philosophy.
It's health above everything else.
If we get your health right, body composition comes easy.

This coaching philosophy has achieved honours' such as:

  • 21x World Titles in Natural Sports and Fitness Modelling
  • 6x Pro Cards in Natural Bikini, Sports and Fitness Model.
  • 3x National Titles in Fitness Modelling
  • 1x Miss Galaxy Australia

If you've had enough of grinding for little results, book a call and let's see what's holding you back.
