Online Coaching


I’m Mike, I’m a coach, and I’m good at what I do.

That may seem arrogant, but I believe it to be 100% true. There are too many coaches in the industry today who think that training people online is nothing more than giving meal plans, adjusting macronutrients and setting training programs. I am not one of those coaches.

Sure, I do all those things. I can get you to lose fat, build muscle, get fitter and stronger. I can train you for –

  • Photo shoots
  • Bodybuilding contests
  • Fitness/ figure competitions (Both male and female)
  • Powerlifting meets
  • Endurance events
  • General fat loss

And I’ll get you the results you want. But there’s more to coaching than that.

My role isn’t just to tell you to eat more carbs, add in cardio, or reprimand you for eating a pizza. I listen to you. I’m your support, your encouragement and your accountability.

I ensure you achieve all your aims, whether they’re physique-based, performance-based, or your deepest desire is to simply have a healthier relationship with food.

The thing that makes me different to other coaches? I will NEVER do this at the expense of your health, your sanity and your enjoyment of life itself.

Looking awesome and feeling fantastic are NOT mutually exclusive. You can live a normal life, go out to eat with your kids, have drinks with friends, make the most of everything the world has to offer and be in great shape.

And I’m pretty damn good at getting that balance for you.


What’s Up? My name is Steve Hall, competitive bodybuilder, powerlifter and online coach.

Before getting into the fitness industry I graduated from The University of Nottingham with a BA (Hons) in Geography with Business. However, fitness has always played a pivotal role in my life. From playing for Cheltenham Athletics Youth Football Team to then being a competitive mid-distance runner, to now a dude who likes to look good lifting heavy stuff and helping others do the same.

My main aim is to guide, educate and empower others towards their health and fitness goals. My typical client base are men looking to either gain lean muscle mass or shred fat, whilst getting stronger, to eventually compete in either Powerlifting or a Physique contest. However, I do and have worked with a wide range of people, from stay at home mums to office bound dads. Whoever you are, I want to help you become the best version of yourself, and know how you got there.

Outside of my job as an online coach and lifting weights, I also love to cook up new recipes, travel the globe and chill-out in front of a good film.


Hey I’m Carly.

I specialise in helping women get to where they want to be in terms of weight, shape, size and confidence.

Actually, I don’t “specialise” in it ... I’m really, really good at it!

I’ve been there and tried all the fad diets and quick fixes. The days of low-carbs, low-calories and 2-hour cardio sessions. The detox diets, disgusting shakes and strict meal plans that don’t allow you to live your life.

I’ve lost the weight and looked skinny, but felt dreadful. The I’ve piled it back on, had the pangs of guilt and begun the cycle all over again.

What I’m trying to say is that I know what you’re going through. But I’ve come out the other side leaner and slimmer, feeling fitter, stronger and sexier, and gained confidence in my body. I realise that this has to be something long-term that works for you and for your lifestyle, because what good is it being slim if you hate life and can’t have fun?

Feel free to reach out to me to enquire about coaching, ask a question, or just have a chat.


Hi, Im Bjorn....

Right, enough about me! The coaching experience is all about you.

No two people are the same and this is the philosophy I adopt with all my clients. You can be assured of a truly personalised approach. Everything we do will be unique to you, your goals, your lifestyle and the things you love.

So if you want to drop a dress size (or two) or get lean & muscular then we will work together to find the approach that gives you maximum results, maximum enjoyment and minimum hassle.

Whether your vice is pizza or ice cream, wine or beer, I will show you how you can enjoy these things while looking and feeling better than ever.

As a husband, dad and former bank manager I know that overhauling your lifestyle when you’re busy living life isn’t realistic. I offer a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on or a kick up the butt whenever you need it.

I also spent 10 years as a bank manager, and was in a heavy metal band, so if you need a hand setting up a mortgage, or want to learn a killer Black Sabbath lick, I’m your man for that too.


Im Anthony Sydric. Im a 31 year old online coach/personal trainer and lifetime natural bodybuilder with over a decade of experience in the fitness industry.

Health,fitness and nutrition especially can be confusing at times, with a new fad diet emerging on a seemingly weekly basis and various foods and food groups wrongly being labelled as unhealthy, sometimes it’s hard to know what to do.....well it doesn’t need to be this way....

Getting low bodyfat has and will always be about being in a caloric defecit. There is no magic pill, no need to go on some whacky restrictive diet or crazy juice’s all about being consistent with your diet whilst still eating the foods you enjoy in moderation.

I’ve been working in the fitness industry for 10 years and ever since I can remember I’ve always had a passion for keeping in shape and specifically...lifting heavy stuff! During that time, through lots of trial and error, I’ve found out what works and what doesn’t work so well. This lifestyle is my passion and I’m lucky enough to be able to call it my work.

When it comes to dieting I’m a big believer in keeping things flexible. A diet is something that should fit into your lifestyle...not the other way around.

I don’t believe in giving clients a limited list of foods to eat and sending them off into the wild. That may work for some but a) it’s completely unnecessary and b) will most likely give that client a bad relationship with food. A diet is there to be enjoyed regardless of whether you’re prepping for a show or not.

Whether you’re looking to prep for a bodybuilding, physique or figure show, get shredded for a photoshoot, or you just want to reduce your bodyfat...I can help you reach your goals.

Client success stories

“After less than one year, nose to the grindstone, Finally being able to fit COMFORTABLY into that SAME bikini I wore to Vegas exactly 5 years and 35-40lbs ago made me wish I could jump in a time machine and go back and apologize to society… 

But, there is no traveling backward at my house. We keep pushing forward! Next year I’m turning these baby cuts into big girl cuts.”


"You are an amazing coach and I have really appreciated your help in turning my food restriction issues into food freedom!"


"There is not one bad word I can say about working with Mike!

Since I have been with him, I have never been in better shape or felt as confident in my appearance as I do now. His knowledge of fitness and nutrition is second to none, couple this with Mike’s relaxed manner and the ease at which you can reach him, make him a great all round coach!

Mike advocates a flexibly strict approach to dieting, and I have been more than flexible!

I have eaten; Chocolate, Ice cream and Popcorn. I have had meals out and eaten desserts in restaurants, I have had fizzy drinks and alcohol, but the crème del crème; I even ate a Reeses Krsipy Kreme doughnut! Boy was it good! I got to eat all this whilst hitting my macros, staying lean and working towards my goals.

I could not recommend Mike enough! You are only missing out by choosing to work alone, or with someone else!"

"Have bared my soul with Mike - the single best coach EVER.

This is a fantastic partnership and I can tell you now that my client spot is a permanent one, for as long as you’ll have me."


"Training with Mike has been great!  I Contacted him after reading the "Every mans guide to DUP" article and was absolutely delighted with the training and the results! If anyone is thinking about setting up some DUP training but doesn't know where to start Mike is your man!"


"I contacted Mike about 4 months ago with desperate need of his services.

I was feeling a bit defeated then, since my weight loss journey had stalled and I had gained some re-gained some weight.

In the past, I had tried every approach to weight loss under the sun. Low carb, low calorie diet, restricted "clean" eating (which led to binges but that's another story). Not to mention the endless amount of cardio and although I lifted weights I didn't really have a training plan and was not improving in strength.

I was lucky to come across Mike's Facebook page and purchased his e-book on flexible dieting. Not only was the material easy to comprehend it had ton of helpful tips that in the past would have confused me and turned me away from flexible dieting and counting these things called macros.

I followed him on Facebook and discovered he had some coaching spots open, I immediately decided I had to join his team. As soon as I contacted him I knew I made the right decision. I wrote to him asking for his help in reaching my goals. I wanted to lose fat, gain strength, have a better relationship with food, and overall confidence in my appearance as well as myself.

Since working with him I had done just that ! Over the past months I've lost 10 pounds and I'm more relax with my eating habits, no foods are off limits so no need to binge. I have gained a ton of confidence in myself and as well as in the gym with my lifts.  I'm stronger than ever and the happiest I've been in a long time. Mike has been very helpful and has made it easier for me to reach my goals. He is sincere and very willing to adjust my plan based on my goals. I appreciate the genuine work he puts into his clients and the fact that he is always available to chat when needed.  I always say contacting him was the best decision I have made and I truly do believe that."

"Since signing up with you Mike, I've lost a decent amount of fat and now putting on lean muscle. You've helped me with form an amazing relationship with food & fitness, having fun with both and take control of my body and life. I could never thank you enough and recommend you as an online coach to all who ask me what "diet" and program I'm on. Forever grateful mate."


"My name is Sharon Robinson I am 43 years old mother of 2 and a Personal Trainer. I'm  always looking at ways to keep moving forward, improving and learning especially in my quest to better myself athletically. I've had many coaches to help me with various athletic endeavors, Triathlons, marathons and figure competition bodybuilding shows.

I really wanted to take things to the next level and my current goal is to maximizes my caloric intake, increase my muscle and stay lean and for life not just for a goal date. A tall order for sure and one that many people want to achieve. In my search for a coach that could help me with this goal  I came across Mike. I've only had Mike as my coach for a short time but I know I will be keeping him. He just get's it. ;) His passion, honesty, responsiveness and understanding is amazing, No questions go unanswered and he responds to every email even if I have no questions, he listens to my concerns, and just makes sense of it all. My body is already responding/changing to the customized workout plan and increased food. I have so much energy and my lifting/strength is improving all the time. I love having all the workouts mapped out for me every 4 weeks, no calculations all I need to do is "THE WORK"  I will compete in figure again next year and can't wait to have Mike as my coach.

I think Mike is a game changer for the better in the fitness industry and I'm really happy to be a part of his journey and really glad he's a part of mine."

"Steve has completely changed my outlook on dieting and nutrition as a whole. I’m the strongest I have ever been pound for pound, and that’s thanks to the routines I have followed, with the weekly adjustments and monitoring provided by Steve. Steve is the best supplement I have ever used!"

Ryan Synnott

"Even I never thought I needed a coach having always stayed fit and healthy, knew about different training programs and nutrition, as well as knowing how my body worked. But having recently spent the last 3 months being accountable to Mike Samuels, it’s been one of the best experiences I’ve had, as it has enabled me to achieve several goals at a point where my life had so much going on."

Note from Mike - Chris not only got seriously lean, did a photo shoot and competed in a bodybuilding contest ... he also got married and went on honeymoon just 3 weeks before. He ate "real food" (including froyo, Reese's cups and Subway!) and was the perfect model of flexibility and balance.
