75521_447993765271100_583974848_nMatt Wild is an advocate of Dave Palumbo Keto Dieting.

2010 has been a decisive moment in his bodybuilding career. First time EVER to be on stage as a competitor at the Intermediate Under 90kg category and having qualified for the UKBFF Finals, Matt caught the competition bug and realized that his passion for bodybuilding was not just hobby, but a way of life and a mentality he was willing to sustain for life.

The experience gained from training for well over 10 years now and taking it seriously or more scientifically -if you wish- for the last 6 years has made Matt a Forum fiend, interested in sharing and learning new information consistently.

Matt can be found on Forum boards such as on Fit Forum and MuscleTalk and is always willing to answer questions, provide tips and advice. So if you see him, do not hesitate to say hello!

In addition to his career as a Bodybuilder and professional life, Matt also has the tremendous pleasure in coaching and training other competing athletes.

295511_10151301285466239_1267469313_nI am a published writer and Careers Blogger for Express and Star, collaborator with Clinical Psychologist and Careers Blogger Fernando Tarnogol, and a contributor to a number of websites such as The Undercover Recruiter.

I am a graduate of University of Wolverhampton School of Applied Sciences with a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Psychology, additionally I am a certified Life Coaching.

Career pursuits and passions include Psychology and Mental Health Rehabilitation, Automotive Electric Systems Manufacturing and Engineering, Retail, Sports and Health Psychology.

My personal competition or show experience is unlike any other out there – In October 2012 I started training, 6 months later I competed in my first show in the BodyFitness Class. In 5th of May I won my class and Women Overall division against well seasoned athletes.

I made a commitment to my childhood dream to “win a medal”. I signed up for my first UKBFF show while working full time as Rehabilitation Assistant in a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit, night shifts of 12 hours and day shifts of 13 hours. However, my job in such a volatile and aggressive environment did not hold me back, I kept focused, worked hard & I earned:

2013 UKBFF British Finals | 19th of October | 3rd place BodyFitness – Coach Matt Wild
Columbus, Ohio | 27th of February – 2nd of March | 12th place (was ill) – Coach Matt Wild
Denmark | 19th – 20th or April | 6th place BodyFitness – Coach George Farah & Matt Wild
2015 UKBFF South Coast |
29th of April | 1st place Women’s Physique – Coach George Farah & Matt Wild
2016 PCA |
2rd of October | 1st place Athletic Figure – Coach George Farah & Matt Wild
2016 PCA |
23rd of October | 2nd place Athletic Figure – Coach George Farah & Matt Wild

During training and competition preparations my routine was: start work at 7:30pm, work until 7:30am, go to sleep at 9am, wake up at 3-4pm, cardio, shower/change, meal prep. Go to gym until 7:00pm, change and back to work. Train again at midnight, in my break.

During my day shifts: start work at 7am, work until 8pm. Train till 10pm. Shower/change, meal prep. Sleep. Wake-up at 5:30am, cardio, shower, work. At times waking up at 4am for a training session before work.

I understand the struggles of show and competition preparation and making time for training, the meal preparation and everything else that comes along with it.

In this journey, I have the opportunity to work with our amazing TEAM WILD clients, help and guide them towards a healthier & sexier body (if I may) and learn from some of the best fitness and posing coaches in the industry ranging from George Farah, my now husband Matt Wild, Leica and Mike Gelsei, Magda Lipinska, to mention but a few.

When I’m not gymming, tweeting, facebook-ing and blogging, I enjoy the finer things in life: precious time with Matt, food (I am a cookie monster), traveling and sports.

 How We Diet, Train & Supplement!
