    About the Author

    Ray Klerck is a well-known personal trainer and former fitness editor for Men’s Health magazine in the UK. He has also appeared as a fitness model on the cover of that publication. Today he continues as a Men’s Health fitness and nutrition advisor on a freelance basis. He writes and edits an 18-page section of the magazine titled Personal Trainer and contributes regular in-depth features on health and fitness for other popular publications such as FHM, GQ, Fighters Only, and Men’s Fitness.

    After qualifying as a Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) level 4 master personal trainer and nutrition specialist with Premier Global (equivalent to NASM CPT), Klerck joined Men’s Health UK in 2001. Over the next seven years he became the most successful fitness editor in the magazine’s history, combining his expert knowledge with the latest scientific research to create award-winning exercise and nutrition programmes.

    Klerck has trained clients from all backgrounds—celebrities, athletes, Men’s Health staff and readers—helping ordinary people build muscle and burn fat for remarkable before-and-after results featured in the magazine. Klerck’s influence helped Men’s Health become the UK’s best-selling men’s magazine, and his workouts continue to reach large audiences in Australia and the UK. Men’s Health UK has been voted best edition of that global publication (48 editions total) for four years in a row. It has also won accolades as UK Magazine of the Year.

    Klerck lives in Ballina, Australia. His work continues to appear in multiple international Men’s Health editions and is followed by millions of readers each month. Klerck recently coauthored A Fist Full of Food with Matt Lovell, the UK’s leading sport nutritionist.
