#TeamREGO Online Coaching:

You would be working directly with myself throughout your prep. Over the last year I have worked alongside a number of competitive athletes, delivering a number of pro cards, overall champion titles and high ranked placings. My aim is to get you the results you deserve!

This is what's included:

Nutrition Plan:

The diet plan is designed specifically around each individual's needs. This can change on a weekly basis if necessary. This is in order for your body to adapt and head in the right direction to meet your specific goal! All I ask is that you report to us every week with an update of your weight, how you are feeling and your current progress pictures. This way I can make the changes needed and make sure we are on track to getting some serious results.

Training Programs:

This will be a full weights and cardio regime, including all the tricks I have picked up over the years of training with pros.

Supplementation:

This will include the supplements I recommend you use, when and how to use them most efficiently.

24hour Support:

I have found this to be key in our coaching philosophy. I provide 24hr service for all of our clientele. Any time you need to ask a question or have a worry, no matter when or what time, you can contact me. I will reply as soon as possible! My phone is always on, so in most cases you will get a reply straight away! You can contact me via Facebook messenger, Whatsapp, email, whatever suits you best

If you want results and are serious about getting them then you have come to the right team! #TeamREGO

About Me: My background is Portuguese and Egyptian. I have always been heavily involved in sport from a young age competing at national level as a teen in a number of sports such as football, athletics and rugby. As I got older I started realizing that I actually enjoyed the training aspect of sports much more than playing the game, this is where I found my love for bodybuilding! The gym was always my therapy, a place where I could go whenever I wanted to get away. I think this is why I have so much passion for the sport as no matter what is happening in life the gym is always there for you to clear your mind and re-focus.

Nutrition Principles: I believe in keeping things simple, clean quality whole foods has always worked great for me when it comes to contest prep or offseason! Keep it simple, these days everyone is trying to re-invent the wheel and I think this is why we see a lack of consistent quality on stages these days. Simple works, don’t over complicate things.

Training Principles: I’m a huge believer in hard work and intensity when it comes to training, nothing can beat consistent hard work in and outside of the gym. A lot of my training currently revolves around progressive overload using very strict form. As I have got older I have started to realise the importance of form and connecting with the target muscle rather than just loading the weight; connection and stimulation is key with training.

Current Goals: my goal has always been to turn IFBB Pro, which I achieved in 2019, and now I aim to continue to progress my bodybuilding career, as well as my contribution to the sport & industry as a whole; which I believe I can do in a unique way with RegoRaw.com

My Motivation: my motivation comes from own self-belief and bettering myself, as not only a bodybuilder, but also as a person. My aim is to strive to be better in all aspects of life.

Favourite Supplements and Why: AD supplements are some of the best quality and formulas around, I actually used the brand for a number of years prior to becoming a sponsored athlete. I swear by their products!

How did you get into fitness and competing? I got into competing through sports and the love for training.

How do you balance your social life and fitness life? Balance over the years has been hard but I’ve finally found my way around it. I think the key is making time for it, you have to make conscious effort to prioritize your time. I’ve found this the best way.

Who do you look up to in the fitness industry? I look up to a number of the IFBB Pro athletes especially those who have come from nothing and show what can be done with consistent hard work. People like Flex Lewis and Phil Heath are great role models for our sports and not only successful bodybuilders but also business men.
