Tell us a little about yourself
I have been training for around 9 years now (even though it doesn't look like it). Powerlifting is currently my main competitive focus. The journey that training and competing has taken me in this time has been a big part of my life and development as an individual.
The experiences and lessons I have taken away from my own training, nutrition and general pursuit for improved health, fitness and performance has contributed significantly to my ability to help others on their own health and fitness journey.
I co-own JPS Health & Fitness with my brother (Jacob Schepis), where I have been coaching and working closely with countless clients and like minded individuals for nearly a decade. Every day I get to work with great people in (hopefully) a way that is productive and positive for them, and allows them to progress towards their goals in life, health and fitness.
I love what I do, and I consider myself quite lucky to be surrounded by great people who are all driven to be better and improve in all facets of their life.
What are your biggest athletic career wins:
2018 Mens Open National Champion (U77) Powerlifting Australia (Squat 255, Bench 160, Deadlift 282.5 - Total 697.5).
Squat and Total are records (they still stand over a year later).
What is your ultimate fitness/sports goal: I would like to compete internationally and represent Australia in Powerlifting.
A random fact about you: I am a lawyer.
What does your training life look like: My training is primarily strength based given my upcoming competitions in powerlifting.
Why Bulk Nutrients: I have been using Bulk Nutrients products for a few years now. When I was younger and getting into my training (and didn't know any better) I would to go to supplement stores and spend hundreds of dollars on supplements that weren't of any real use or benefit. I started using Bulk Nutrients products as they were more affordable and offered a great quality product for what I was after.
What supplements do you use/recommend: WPI, Creatine (everyone who takes their lifting seriously should be taking creatine in my opinion!), Pre-workouts and depending on your goals maybe a mass-gainer or carb supplement.
