We've picked up quite a reputation over the last 2 years for helping ectomorphs naturally add some muscle to their frames and lose a few inches from round the middle.  Part of the reason for this has definitely been the fact Personal Trainer Dave Thomas  actually has 6 clients over 6'3". You can see some more of Dave's impressive previous results here and here and check in with our current project training 'Ectomorph Ed' for Men's Health magazine here.

Lucky Ed is training with the uncompromising Sarah Lindsay, nine-time British speed skating champion and triple Olympian.  In Ed's words "If she can’t scare me into lifting that extra kilo and keep me focused, no one can."

Below are pictures from one of our most recent ectomorph transformations to keep all the Ed's of the world inspired.  Great gains can be made, regardless of body type, through regular, consistent training and a supportive, nutritional diet.


Neil is a typical Foundry client. He works long hours in a stressful City environment, has a young family and plays sport in his free time.  He came to The Foundry as he wanted to improve his general health, add muscle and lose weight.  Over the course of 4 months, training twice a week, NR has already lost over 10 KG, including a whopping 12% body fat and 4 inches off his waist.  He has also added 3kg of very noticeable  lean mass.

“I didn’t really know what to expect when I came to see Dave Thomas at The Foundry as I had never used a Personal Trainer before, but was spending time and money at the gym and not seeing results. I found the whole assessment of my lifestyle, training and nutrition really interesting and the combination of a plan that covered all three, plus the confidence that what I was doing was right, has been awesome. The first few weeks were very tough – lots of soreness and adjusting to a new diet – but I couldn’t believe how quickly I saw results in body shape and fitness. At my age, I can’t believe I feel strong, leaner and more toned than I ever have and how much I’ve become addicted to the diet and training. The training is varied, intense and you always feel like you’ve gotten the most out of a session. I’m a major fan!” Neil.
