Hi. I’m Christian, the guy behind Muscle Evo.
One day, many years ago, I got fed up with all the confusing and conflicting advice about diet and exercise.
So I created a website that uses science and research – rather than tradition, opinion or guesswork – to help you get to the bottom of what works and what doesn’t. You can read more about my story here.
I hold a master’s degree with distinction in exercise science (my old university interviewed me here), and used to work as a personal trainer, as well as a “trainer to the trainers” at Premier Training.
I’ve been featured in various places over the years, including:
I’m also the author of various books and training programs, including:
- Muscle Evo – a complete training program for getting in shape.
- MX4 – a joint-friendly training program for gaining muscle as fast as humanly possible.
- Gutless – a simple, straightforward, science-backed nutrition system for getting rid of fat.
If you want to put a face to the name, this is me below:
And, if you want to put a voice to the face, this is a podcast interview I did with Mike Matthews of Muscle for Life, where I talk about how to build muscle in your 40s and beyond without injuring yourself or wrecking your joints.
Although I was born in Liverpool, I live in a small village called Moreton Pinkney, which is pretty much slap bang in the middle of England.
When I’m not in the gym training or writing something, I enjoy playing tennis, as well as taking my dog on long walks while listening to an audiobook or podcast (at the moment, I’m listening to High Risk: A True Story of the SAS, Drugs and Other Bad Behaviour by Ben Timberlake).
I’m also a big fan of mountain biking. As far as I’m concerned, the greatest invention in all of human history is the bicycle.
I can think of nothing else that has injected so much happiness, freedom, fun and adventure into my life than a triangulated structure with two wheels driven by a chain and cogs.
Over the last few years, I’ve been cycling in various countries, including:
Norway, Nepal and maybe even Kazakhstan are next on the list!
