Need a Trainer ?

This Can Be You

da-fuzz (1)“My name is Darren  Avondo. I am 29 years old. A little while back my good friend and Trainer Nicholas Caracandas and I started training together. In the beginning I used to only train for aesthetic reasons. I wanted big arms and a big chest. I never used to enjoy the hard work that accompanied his style of training as it was very new to me. Nicholas has helped me realize that hard work really does pay off. Not only where looking better is concerned, but FEELING better about myself.

When I started training with him I weighed in at a whopping 107 kg’s and had a body fat percentage of 29%. I now weigh in at 84kg light and own a body fat percentage of 14%!!!. (This is after only one and a half years). Il leave it at that as the results speak for themselves.

I can do things now that I never thought possible. Training with movement patterns instead of isolating muscle groups has its benefits far beyond what we see in this picture.

Thanks for everything !!”
