A fitness fanatic by day, and DJ by night, this adrenaline-junkie Scotsman grew up mountain climbing and snowboarding in the Highlands, so you know he’s going to push you to the edge during his HIIT class! Read on for his tips to stay motivated and healthy every day.

Fit-focused Qs:

What is your go-to breakfast on a busy morning? On a busy morning I will usually make some scrambled eggs and smoothie and if I am really short for time just a protein shake and banana on the go!

What's your best strategy to stay motivated? Just to remember my goal everyday and stay focused on it whatever it may be and even a collection of photos for inspiration stuck to your fridge can help.

The best thing we can do for ourselves after a workout is... a good full body stretch, holding long enough on each muscle group and to drink a protein shake after your workout.
