Steve Howard


Hi, I am Steve, originally from Sea Point, Cape Town where I worked as a buyer for, South Africas Leading Fashion e-tailer.  In September 2015 I was head hunted and moved to Bryanston, Johannesburg.  I currently work for The Gadget Shop, Heading up the e-Commerce Division as well as overseeing the Companys Social Media, Marketing Department and Client Concierge.  My Technical mind and love for Gadgets allows me to love what I do.

Everyone that knows me asks me ‘How could you move from Cape Town to Johannesburg’?  The answer is simple, there is no wind here…  But honestly, I do not regret my decision, I find myself surrounded by great experiences, people and places.

IMG-20160518-WA0009As I grow older, I find myself searching for a greater meaning for life.  I spend most of my focus on healthy eating, Fitness, Exercise, Cooking and of course my career.  I spend 5 / 6 days per week at Virgin Active Gym and I take part in Park Run on a Saturday morning at 08H00 (500 Discovery Vitality Points).  My favorite form of Fitness is long distance running, I compete in a couple of Half Marathons each year but I generally keep it social because cardio makes me drop too much weight.

My body type is a nightmare.  My metabolism is extremely fast, I burn everything I eat in minutes.  It has taken me 8 months to gain 8 kg by upping my food intake and filling in with Protein and Carb shakes between meals to keep my calories up.  I still can’t seem to eat enough.  Gaining weight is a huge problem for me, I lose weight and start to look skinny fast if I don’t keep to my regular meals.

My main focus is to make my skinny legs bigger and my overall goal weight is to reach 85kg by working harder and eating even more.

Keep following us as I share more of my Gains Journey and tips that have helped me get to where I am.
