About Martin Scrafton
How I lost everything fought a house intruder and bounced back!
Since a very early age I have been interested in martial arts and training of all types, i loved football growing up, and loved leading an active lifestyle.
I grew up competing for the school teams and local teams, as well as competing in boxing, kickboxing, karate, Jujitsu and judo…
I let the darkness cloud my senses and truly take me under its grasp as I put on 4 stone in weight and over 15 percent body fat. Needless to say my trouser size took a battering and my fitness completely disappeared.
The passion for health and fitness seemed to dim but I can say it never fully left me.
I continued to read everything i could about exercise health & fitness, i loved studying the whys and the wherefores of it all and continued to brush up on my knowledge of the human body and its workings.
However having all of this knowledge actually made me fall deeper into depression, knowing that I knew exactly what needed to happen to live a fit, healthy lifestyle, yet living a lifestyle that took me in the complete opposite direction meant i was constantly conflicted.
I constantly kicked myself for not having the strength of mind or character to do what i knew needed to be done in order to truly follow a healthier lifestyle. I would procrastinate and put it off constantly, starting diet after diet on a Monday, and falling off wagon after wagon on a Tuesday.
It truly was a deep dark spiral I was in, I simply couldn’t motivate myself enough to break free of the cycle. what i needed was a eureka moment, only I didn’t know when that moment would come.
Friday 16th December 2011, I was shaving in the mirror in my bathroom, looking forward to christmas and all the tasty food and drink I was going to consume. Christmas songs playing on the radio, all was great.
I cut myself on the right side of my cheek but didn’t have a towel or any tissue to stem the flow…
I ran across the landing to get a towel from the cupboard and as I turned I noticed a fat naked man staring at me from across the landing… I jumped… not recognising the intruder who had so obviously broken into my home.
Then the true horror hit me….
The fat naked intruder was me in my landing mirror.
I was generally startled, I believe I gasped out loud.
It had been so long since I had paid myself any attention, I didn’t even recognise myself.
I was literally a shadow of my former self.. only so much larger, fatter, rounder and dare I say it...Uglier.
`i couldn’t believe i had let myself sink so low.
`i had allowed myself to truly lose all shape and semblance of the former athlete i hd been in my younger years and i truly couldn’t believe it.
``right there and then, as i stood looking at this sad, sorry state of a man infront of the mirror i decided to do something about it.
I decided to truly put the knowledge and qualifications i have into practice. I vowed that i would help myself become fitter, healthier and sexier, as well as help others to become more than there average selves.
``i forged ahead and created the Lean body lifestyle nutritional principals, following them to the letter myself to truly transform my body within 6 months.
i went from fat flabby and unfit, to lean muscular and ultra fit and i lifted myself out of depression along the way.
I couldn’t believe how easy it really was once i had understood my WHY…
Once i had my why back i knew i couldn’t be beaten by the deep dark depression again.
Since then i have went on to help Hundreds of men and women just like you across the UK to get into the best shape of there lives and truly become more than average!
