What is Team EVEX all about?
Simply put EVEX stands for Evolution or Extinction. It’s a philosophy I’ve adopted to not just my
training but to life in general. Everything in this world is always changing around us and therefore
you have two options, evolve to keep up or become extinct.
I started this blog to help people. This blog is not another picture-perfect trainer giving you a hard
sale or writing articles about how amazing one training style or diet is. It’s about sharing in success
but also failure and learning from mistakes. The aim is to grow and adapt together, as a team.
From a young age I was always involved in a variety sports. This led me to be selected for Scotland in both cricket and basketball at various ages groups. When I left school I was lucky enough to follow my passion for basketball and was given the opportunity to play basketball in the States. On my return I managed to secure a sport scholarship to the University of Wolverhampton and completed a BSc Hons in Sports Coaching and earned a First Class and two awards, one for best sporting contribution to a team and the other for best student in the school of sport and exercise science. After uni I worked in various fitness and coaching jobs including coaching university basketball teams, personal training and fitness instructing. Like most who have worked in the sport or fitness industry I found it’s a very saturated market with a million fitness gurus, instructors, coaches and influencers. Most organisations are driven by sales and not results or the clients, so this led me to follow other career paths. But I’ve never fully left the industry and still work with sports teams and clients today. It was actually some of the athletes I work with who suggested I start a blog as a way to post workouts and advice when I cannot make training sessions due to other commitments. So I did. I’m not the best writer and this website won’t be perfect but like I said life is about evolution so I will learn from my mistakes and hopefully some of you will find it useful.
