Martin King is the wildly popular Personal trainer & Firefighter in Thame, curator of Skiip & Bodybyking. Martin has studied & crafted the Bodybyking method over 10 years to achieve awesome results, inspired by the greats Mark Twight, Charles Poliquin & Kelly Starrett.
Martin has designed a training style thats both innovative, varied & fun. No session is ever the same as Martin states progressive variety is key to adaptation, development and ultimately positive change.
That’s the pretty bit the reality is Martins just like you. He tries as best he can to be a good dad, supportive husband, pay the bills and inspire, he has dog days, amazing days & days he just wants to eat cake & have a beer yet within the rolloercoaster of life he maintains a consistency of remaining fit for life! Martin is an ambassador of the 80:20 rule: Train hard, eat right, work hard but more importantly remember life is for living so enjoy every day.
“No one saves us but ourselves.No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path”
That’s what you’ll learn with Martin his Trainings real, in your twenties you can train twice a day but the pressures of life will influence how you train as you get older. Whilst training with Martin he’ll set achievable goals that challenge you both mentally and physically.
Kings Law: “Train your mind and body to push beyond your percieved limits.”
Martin wasnt always a trainer he spent his earlier years as a cocktail bar tender, club manager & hotelier it was only after hitting rock bottom drinking 6 nights a week did he realise things had to change.
After some soul searching whilst travelling the world did he decide a healthier more balanced life was needed. So on return to the UK Martin became a firefighter and personal trainer, the rest is Kettlebells & field fires.
“I Don’t expect you to be perfect, I’m not!, just aim to be better than yesterday”
