Hello, I’m Pek Lees
The simple life; training, eating, sleeping and relaxing. I love playing and watching sports – Rugby Union, Olympic weightlifting, Muay Thai/Boxing and most ball/contact sports.
I took up Olympic lifting this year and hope to compete in State and Nationals next year.
I also decided to take up surfing this year and hope to have my own board and get past the white wash by the end of summer!
My skills are in the areas of:
Strength and Conditioning. I have a Level 1 ASCA Strength and Conditioning coaching certification and hope to complete a degree in Exercise or Sports Science and Level 2 Strength & Conditioning certification in the next 5 years.
I believe that with a properly structured periodized program, clean eating and the will to train 4-6 times a week, you’ll reach any physical goal you set yourself.
Results I’ve gained with clients include:
Helping a 50+ year old lady complete her best half marathon time. We managed to lose 14kg of body fat and strengthened her from being barely able to lunge, to box squatting and deadlifting!
Almost all of my clients are now able to deadlift and squat their body weight and over.
One of my first clients was unable to complete one chin up or body dip when he started with me. With consistent strength training, he is now able to do 10+ body weight chins and dips, and has moved onto weighted chins! He has also dropped 5kg in fat as an added bonus.
Another client has now dropped 63.5mm (8.5% body fat) and is fitting into the jeans she wore when she first came to Australia!
My favourite exercises include:
Squats (full depth!), deadlifts/clean or snatch grip pulls, cleans, jerks, snatches, push press and chin ups.
My personal philosophy is:
My training philosophy is basic and heavy. Lift as often as you can, as heavy as you can. The 3-5 program sums this up nicely;
3-5 training sessions a week
3-5 exercises per session
3-5 sets per exercise
3-5 reps per set
3-5 minutes rest between sets
Deload and test every 3-5 weeks.
My personal philosophy is to live a simple but colourful life. Train, eat, sleep, repeat. Enjoy yourself. Have fun, as long as what you’re doing isn’t hurting anyone.
As Bruce Lee once said, “The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering”
So get out there, and do the things you’ve always wanted to do!
