Fitness Fanatic, and Multi Sport Specialist, meet Max Cuneo!

Max has competed in many sports, such as sailing, Muay Thai, bodybuilding, rock climbing and more! He has a passion for health and wellbeing.

Max has degrees in physiotherapy and nutrition science, and is a Masters of Public Health candidate. He's got a genuine passion for the industry, from both the training and nutrition side.

Hey everyone!

My name is Max. I live and breathe health and fitness.

I’ve had Coeliac Disease for more than 25 years, which inevitably led to my interest in eating in a particular way to achieve a certain outcome - to survive and thrive.

Along the way, I developed a passion for many sports, several of which I have competed in, during my late teenage and adult years, such as sailing (125s, 13ft Skiffs, 16ft Skiffs) at both regional and national levels. I've competed in Muay Thai regionally, body building at both state and national levels (in the physique category), and most recently rock climbing at the state level. I've also been training to compete in lead-climbing.

I have achieved both Queensland and Australian titles across these sports, for which I am very grateful. Surfing, free-diving and spearfishing are also huge passions and hobbies of mine which I participate in recreationally - from Northern New South Wales to Far North Queensland.

I currently work in private practice in Brisbane as a physiotherapist and as a clinical nutritionist. My main physio focusses are in fat loss, lean muscle gain and health management. Rolling the camera forward, the Masters of Public Health will then give me the capacity to get involved in community health, as I want to be involved in community health decision making to help the masses, in addition to being able to work one-on-one in private practice.

I wholeheartedly trust and support Bulk Nutrients, their team and their products. I currently write articles for Bulk Nutrients which I hope you find interesting, entertaining, educational and empowering.

Please feel free to reach out to me on social media for any of your health and fitness questions. I use Instagram as a way of communicating with an extended audience, so feel free to reach me there.

Take care, and I'm looking forward to engaging with you.

Max's recommended products

Here are some of the products I use and recommend!

Bulk Nutrients' Whey Protein Isolate WPI is ultra high in protein and is sourced from grass fed cows

Whey Protein Isolate

Why I love it: Efficient use of protein, high quality, super convenient.

How I use it: Usually with milk. I love my cereal so I mix my WPI with my milk and add to my muesli

Bulk Nutrients' Creatine Monohydrate Powder offers great value and can help users gain strength and increase muscle volume

Creatine Monohydrate

Why I love it: Creatine Monohydrate is one of the most heavily researched and supported supplements on the market, that has time and time again been shown to benefit athletes requiring explosive energy, for which I desperately need in surfing and bouldering!

How I use it: I smash Creatine on straight water before bed. I find using warm or hot water the best as it dissolves more easily and I don’t have to try and rinse the cup and finish the dregs

Bulk Nutrients' Beta Alanine a staple ingredient of many pre workouts train harder for longer

Beta Alanine

Why I love it: Another heavily researched supplement to complete the sports I undertake. It’s nice to be able to ‘hit the wall’ later in a session rather than on early on, even while being highly conditioned

How I use it: Water. Usually stick to recommended dosages as the temporarily paresthesia (pins and needles) associated with consuming this product can feel so weird!

Bulk Nutrients' BCAA Recovery have countless studies showing benefits in reducing muscle soreness

BCAA Recovery

Why I love it: Concentrated dosage of BCAAs with no extra ingredients. Great concentration of Leucine per serve compared to other products on the market. Great protein product I use during a body re-composition phase.

How I use it: With my water, drink in one hit. Hot water is also pretty good too! Give it a go!

Max's approach to Nutrition

I approach my food like I approach my training. I operate to be clear in the head and light on my feet. I break down my food options that consider macronutrients (protein, carbs, and fat), however, I don’t track macros at all.

Having spent the majority of my life thinking about food to survive, I have inevitably understood generally what the composition of a food is. I also always try and have a pre, intra, and post workout nutrition plan in place. Usually in the form of snacks!

Type of Diet Followed: Gluten Free

Average Daily Calorie Intake: No idea. Fluctuates depending on how much exercise I’m doing. If I roughly gauge it, I would say between 2500-3500 calories per day

Your go-to Cheat Meal? Pizzzzzzza. Why? Because.. umm… PIZZA!
