Vish Patel

Vish signed up for 8 week elite physique earlier on this year. After completion of the program we had a chat and decided we would continue dieting for a photoshoot. Having know him the last few year I knew this was something that he had always wanted to do, but it was just never the right time to commit to such a long prep. However, this year he found himself in a position to do just that so we went full steam ahead.

I always knew he had it in him, but he had just fallen into the trap of caring so much about his clients and providing a great service as a coach that his own journey suffered. This is simply where I came into the equation, for accountability and to ensure he was serving himself as well as others. Throughout the process he pushed himself much further than many would do for a shoot as cardio was super high, food was low, but no once did I hear him complain.

Not only did he smash his shoot, but being a personal trainer himself, he is a great role model and example to his own clients to show that if you put in the work and commit yourself, the results will come. Completing a goal a that years ago he may have never truly believed would happen.

Here is what Vish had to say about his journey:

“I reached out to Vaughan because I spent so much time looking after my clients that I left myself behind. I didn’t care about training or even care about what I was eating. I wanted to challenge myself so I wanted someone in my corner with not only someone who I knew but with the vast knowledge who I could learn from.

Being a trainer myself, I’ve seen plenty examples of how much and how hard someone can work to achieve the results they’ve wanted but doing it yourself is entire different ball game. It’s all about how much YOU can work and being able to take yourself to that next level when it’s needed. You vs you, that’s it. It’s not about how heavy you can lift or how little you can eat, your best is all that’s needed.

Joining Vaughan has levelled me up in all senses. I’m stronger, committed and all round a better coach. I put off doing this photoshoot so many times but regardless of that, I’m better for it now and I can’t wait to do it all over again under the VW Physique team!”
