A calorie is a calorie, right? Therefore, if you have a balance between your Calories Intake and Calories Expenditure you should remain the same weight, right?

Client Spotlight



Malcolm King

Firstly, Malcolm deserves some recognition for taking out the Olympic Distance Triathlon National Championships earlier this month in Wellington.

I am proud to have sponsored Malcolm for the last two years. It has been a great journey working together helping him push his limits. Malcolm has gone from strength to strength, with podium finishes nationally and internationally. Some of the highlights in this time include:

  • 1st in NZ National Champs 2017
  • 1st the South Island Regional Camps
  • 2nd in NZ National Champs 2016
  • 6th in his first Pro Race in New Caledonia
  • 2nd place in Austin Texas, USA.

Here is what Malcolm has to say:
“As a professional triathlete, recovery is key so working with Luke has been essential for enhancing my performance. Our sessions together are based around keeping me functioning optimally while preventing the chance of injury due to my high training load.
Since partnering with Taylored Fitness, I’ve excelled in my sport with podium finishes nationally and internationally. Luke has been there making sure I’m in the best shape I can be to train and race. With Luke’s experience and knowledge, I’m happy knowing I am going to get the best out of what I’m capable of.”
