Unlike personal trainers and nutritionists, I take a more planned, monitored, holistic and supportive approach. You get training, mindset and nutrition all combined together so you know exactly what to do to get your ideal body back while also having the flexibility to accommodate your lifestyle.
You’ll develop a sustainable workout routine, which balances muscle growth and creating a calorie deficit with enhancing your aerobic capacity. Plus, a program which ensures variety (even if you don’t have any equipment) so you don’t struggle with motivation.
The ‘inner game’ is half the battle, as almost everyone fails outside of the gym. You’ll be given the tools to remove your self-defeating mentality, and find the motivation, self belief and confidence within you. More importantly, you’ll end up happy with your physique and draw out the ‘champion mindset’ to get fit and enjoy training again. Read More
You’ll get set up in a routine where you plan your meals and control your calories without worrying too much or being obsessed with weighing food – because you’re eating enough to feel satisfied and still cutting fat.
If anyone understands the pressures of being gay, it’s Keegan. He was previously married with children, and knows exactly what it’s like to come out in the public eye.
What’s more, he hasn’t always been in the best shape, so he knows what it’s like to be perceived as ‘less than’ if you don’t have a perfect bodybuilders body.
Not only has he personally conquered these demons you face as a gay man, the coaching skills he’s learnt as an elite athlete will upgrade your mindset.
Keegan Hirst grew up in a town where nobody was gay.
He tried to bury it. He tried to hide and deny it. And he tried to distract himself by working, training, drugs and drinking - anything not to have to spend time in his own head.
Even after becoming an elite rugby player and being perceived as ‘having it all’ from the outside, he was in a constant tug-of-war between who he was supposed to be and who he actually was.
He even considered taking his own life, only to have his kids save him from himself. Watch Keegan’s remarkable journey of coming out…
With 326 career appearances for Hunslet, Dewsbury, Batley, Featherstone, Wakefield and Halifax, Keegan Hirst has moved onto the next chapter of his life and is now using the coaches eye for detail, high standards and mindset he developed as an elite athlete to support LGBTQ people to master their mindset and get into better shape.
Hirst is known for speaking about living according to your values and doing what’s important to you. After completing his career, he was committed to using his skills to make a difference.
“With one in three LGBTQ people having experienced suicidal thoughts over body image according to the Mental Health Foundation and a study conducted by YouGov, 53% saying they felt anxious and 56% depressed compared to just 33% who are straight I knew this was my mission after rugby”
There’s never any pussy-footing about, we get right to the point.
At the end of each coaching call, you’ll know exactly what to do.
Keegan is direct. He pulls no punches, takes no shit or excuses, and will push you to keep going because he cares about seeing you hit your goals.
And while you’ll get a wealth of information and resources within “the Lab” including over XX videos to watch and learn, this isn’t a “here are the resources, good luck” scenario.
He’s extremely hands on, and you also get access to the PTIQ community on Facebook where you can connect with similar minded people going through the same journey.
Have you tried many different ways to change your body and mindset, dipping in and out of different techniques, but nothing seems to work?
PTIQ provides a set program that puts everything together, including training, nutrition, mindset, and every aspect of well-being...
So you can overcome the lack of direction, get the tools to learn where you’re going wrong, stop yo-yo dieting, and make the changes permanently... so they stick!
As an athlete, I was constantly exposed to alcohol, take outs and an ever changing schedule. Plus I really loved to party.
HSo I’m not going to hand you a constricted diet or “menu” to follow where you always have to have those items in the kitchen, and the time to cook, AND hope you like the food enough to stick with it.
Nor am I going to confuse you…
Instead, you’ll get a flexible approach which makes it easy to meal plan and prep, balance the nutrition (carbs, protein, etc) and develop a change of lifestyle which makes those excess pounds disappear.
