Be a #LifterNotAShifter

Lift Pit is a record of my fitness journey through lifting. I enjoy the gym and I find the challenge of lifting weights, one that switches my competitive side on!

I'm a regular guy with a family, a business to run and seemingly hardly any time to look after myself. But I refused to accept that it couldn't be done! With a few small changes, I've managed to find the time to do things I want to in the gym.

Lift Pit follows my journey and hopefully it may help someone else out there who may be feeling the same things I was a few short months ago. Read on here and don't forget to follow on Instagram, YouTube and on Facebook.

Thanks for stopping by!
