Owen’s journey began with martial arts at just the age of 4 years old after taking up Taekwondo. Owen began competing in full contact competitions at 5 years old eventually becoming a national champion, achieved a 1st Dan black belt at 8 years old and eventually a 2nd Dan black belt at 12 years old.
In 2008 Owen began training to become a strength coach while at the same time training in mixed martial arts (MMA). By 2012 Owen was a top 10 ranked professional MMA fighter competing at an elite European level. Owen was also training as a strength coach under the well-respected and accomplished Tom Hibbert from Winning Health Solutions/Winning Performance as well as personally learning from some of the industries leading including Charles Poliquin, Derek Woodske, Andre Benoit to name but a few.
From January 2018 until Aug 2018, Owen began an experiment to see if he was able to build muscle mass on a raw fruit only diet. After 7 months of dedication, Owen concluded that it was possible after a 3kg increase in lean muscle mass however health was scarified in doing so. Want to find out more?
