The Gym Journey: Learning and Progressing

Hey there! I'm Dan Baz, originally from West Yorkshire, England, and now proudly calling Perth, Western Australia, my home. With over 20 years of experience in lean mass gain, weight loss, strength training, and bodybuilding, I'm here to share my fitness journey with you.

Early Days: From Martial Arts to DIY Workouts

My fitness journey started at a young age when my parents frequented a Health Club. While the gym floor was off-limits, I happily explored the pool, sauna, steam room, and kid’s classes. As a passion for health and fitness grew, I earned a black belt in Shotokan Karate, training and competing at a national level, instilling discipline and early training principles. Too young for the gym, I got creative, purchasing a door-mounted chin bar and my first set of weights, setting the stage for a lifelong passion.

The Gym Journey: Learning and Progressing with Formal Training

Formalizing my passion, I studied an Advanced Higher National Diploma (HNC/HND) in Fitness, Health, and Exercise in the UK. This comprehensive qualification set me up as a professional coach, equipped with the knowledge to guide others effectively. Throughout my time in the UK, I had the privilege of being mentored by experienced coaches who played a significant role in shaping my approach to fitness.

Nutrition and Supplements: Fueling Success

Understanding the importance of nutrition and supplements has been a constant in my fitness journey. From a young age, I recognized their role in achieving results. Today, I stay current with the best practices for nutrition and meal planning, implementing them to notice and maintain optimal results. I'll guide you through the world of effective nutrition and supplements for lasting success.

Training Philosophy: Full Body Training for Maximum Results

I believe in "confuse the body" techniques, where varied exercise sets, order, and types challenge our bodies to continually improve. Additionally, my training philosophy involves full-body training, moving away from traditional bodybuilding splits. Hitting each large compound movement multiple times per week stimulates the muscles to produce higher calorie output, maximizing muscle gain, toning, shaping, and conditioning. It's not just about the old school; it's about the science of achieving the best results efficiently.

Transformative Benefits: Beyond the Physical

Fitness isn't just about looking good; it's about feeling good. Through my own journey, I've witnessed the positive impact on family life, mental well-being, work performance, stress relief, and an overall sense of well-being. My goal is to help you become your best version, both in life and business.

Passion for Wellness: Saunas, Steam Rooms, and Cold Plunges

Growing up in the UK, I developed a passion for the benefits of saunas, steam rooms, and cold plunges from an early age. These practices aren't just about recovery; they contribute significantly to overall well-being. It's a passion I bring to i-Perth Personal Trainer (Osborne Park) and now Inner Sculpt Perth (Nedlands), where we prioritize your holistic wellness journey.
