My name is Travis James Gardiner and I’m a health and nutrition coach specialising in fat loss and total body transformation.
For most of my childhood up until I was 14, I was quite overweight and endured the schoolyard bullying and name calling. At my heaviest I was weighing close to 90 kilos and finally I’d had enough.
I decided to set two goals. My first goal was to lose the weight so I would look and feel better and my second goal was to win the school cross-country running event in a few months.
I started exercising on a regular basis and cleaned up my diet immensely. I gradually dropped over 22 kilos, increased my fitness and was able to win the school cross-country event which was a very big achievement for me.
My desire to seek out knowledge in the world of nutrition, diet and fat loss took off from this point on.
I would spend many hours reading nutrition articles in magazines, reading encyclopedias after school and experimenting with many diet ideologies.
Throughout my early twenties, I became so obsessed with the science and mechanics of fat gain and loss that I would deliberately put large amounts of weight on over the course of a few months and then lose it again so that I could try out different diet strategies.
Obviously, looking back, this wasn’t a healthy thing to do; however I was fascinated and wanted to learn.
I tried ketogenic diets, carb cycling diets, ultra low calorie diets, fasting diets — you name it, I did it.
I spoke with dietitians and nutritionists and hired various bodybuilding diet coaches so I could learn the more intricate details of diet manipulation. I took away what I thought was valuable and discarded the rest, gradually developing my own style and methods.
Later I studied formally to gain my advanced nutrition qualification and then began working with clients for free to get some real-world experience.
Over the last handful of years I’ve worked with many people from all walks of life to refine my methods even further and really hone my skill set.
I believe if you love something and you’re truly passionate about it, you will seek out ways to improve your craft and deliver a result to your clients that exceeds even their own expectations.
Every client “before” and “after” photo you see on this website is legitimate and real. They are of clients mostly who I’ve never actually met, who have worked with me online week-to-week via email correspondence — the same way we will be working together should you hire me.
I’ve made every diet and weight-loss mistake so you don’t have to make them.
I will simplify the process for you so you can sit back and watch the magic happen.
I look forward to this journey together.
