This website is designed for those individuals seeking to improve upon themselves and to make "Gainz" in all areas of their life.


The purpose is to give you effective, efficient non-biased information.

What does the word "Gainz" mean

Gainz for the purpose of this website is the acquirement of something to improve upon yourself or to make your life better. For example this could be:

  • Improving your health by eating better
  • Gaining strength in the gym
  • Taking the right supplements for your desired goals
  • Becoming more productive and efficient with you time

As you can imagine making improvements no matter how small each day will have a positive knock on effect and you'll quickly realise how small changes in habits and awareness can reap great results.

Ok sounds positive, but how do I get started?

Usually this would be the point a large pop-up would appear asking for your email address, but I would first recommend spending 5-10 minutes keeping an open mind and browsing the site to get a feel for the information. If you find it useful please bookmark the website, or subscribe to my feed which will provide you updates of new information. I would love you to be part of the MyGainz community, challenging standard thoughts, ideas and progressing to be the best person you can be.
