After becoming a father and going through knee surgery, I was probably in the worst shape of my adult life. That’s when I decided I needed to do something about it. I had weight trained before but without focus and purpose, so I decided I would do it right this time. I started looking into proper training methods, programming, nutrition (no, I didn’t wait to know everything before hitting the gym) and started implementing things I felt would work for me. Along the way, I’ve had a bunch of people ask me for diet plans, nutrition advice, training advice and that’s when I started dabbling with the idea of a blog. I spoke to my sister, (who’s been strength training longer than me and is also a gold medalist power lifter in her spare time) Sunitha who also thought a blog was a good idea since she’d had many people ask her for advice as well.That’s how Shredify started.
Shredify is meant for people who want to help themselves get fitter and stronger. What you will find is information regarding nutrition (and recipes), training and supplements from our experience. If we’ve not tried something ourselves, you won’t see it here. Since we’re still learning (and probably always will be), older posts may be edited with newer information or a new post might come up that either complements or contradicts older posts (probably because we now know better), so bear with us. We do not make diet charts and training programmes for you. Why you ask? Because this is our motto – “Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you’ve fed him for a lifetime”. We believe if you want to lead a fit lifestyle you need to understand what to put in your body and how you should train rather than blindly doing what someone tells you to. Our aim is to give you all the tools so you can educate yourself and implement it the way it suits you, your lifestyle and goals. This was also the reason why the first thing we developed was our free TDEE and macro calculators for people to use. Of course you can feel free to ask questions and have discussions with us – we love talking about fitness, much to the annoyance of those around us (you know who you are).
