Body Composition Coach Anthony Gyles
Anthony began his fitness journey as an amateur athlete, competing actively in both judo and gymnastics. Resistance training was a natural part of both sports and it was the combination of both strength training and skill acquisition that brought Anthony a great deal of success. After 10 years of competing and collecting many state level competition wins, Anthony decided to stop competing.
Martial arts remained the focus of his efforts and he began training for his Black Belt in traditional tae kwon-do, which was awarded to him in 1998. It was in this year that he opened his first training facility under the mentorship of his Tae Kwon-Do Instructor. Weight training remained a part of Anthony's weekly routine and his interest in it drove him to pursue his first qualification in that field. Completing the qualification of Fitness Instructor in 1998, Anthony was now qualified to teach more than just the martial arts.
Anthony continued to teach and train under the tutelage of his mentors and achieved the rank of fourth degree Black Belt. He opened his own martial art school under the brand of "Military Tae Kwon-Do Australia" in 2007. Trusting his group of Instructors to operate the school, Anthony sought further education and training overseas in London. It was while he lived and worked as a peronal trainer in England that he met his Olympic Liftng Coach Mr Michael Causer (now operating the London Academy of Weight Lifting) and body building mentor Paul Xenos (a former Wales Strongest Man competition winner). Anthony also had the privilege of training some of London's finest Police Officers.
Upon returning to Australia in 2009 Anthony continued to work from a number of small personal training studios and also to further his education. Notable achievements include completing the highly regarded Poliquin International Certification Program, BioSignature Program and most recently the Muscle Nerds Level 1 and 2 seminars - a program designed specifically for improving not only an individuals body composition but more importantly their health.Anthony's clientele include people from all walks of life from highly qualified doctors, physiotherapists and pharmacists to accountants, lawyers and business owners. Anthony's specialty is restoring health through nutrition and exercise in order to achieve improved body composition outcomes.
