About us

Hi, I’m Peter Sharpe, (better known as Pete)
The creator of www.musclemeover.com
Thanks for stopping by to learn a bit about myself and also about my blog.

I'd like to get to hear your story as well.
Join me on your favorite social sites and lets get in the best shape of our lives together!

I started taking an interest in my health and fitness in my late 30’s.
I wasn’t that unhealthy or too much overweight, but I wasn’t really taking care of myself either.

This Is Where It All Started

I had been smoking for 25 years, starting when I was 15 years old.
As I approached my forties I really didn’t want to be addicted to smoking anymore and I went on a bit if a self-challenge that took me 3 years to give up!
Finally at 43 years old I gave up smoking.I still ate and drank the same as I had all my life though.
I had managed to stay reasonably trim, but my gut had started to get too big for my liking.

I Joined A Local Gym

So, as I approached my 50’s, I decided to try and get back into shape, like I was in my 20’s and 30’s!
I joined my local gym and worked out 3 times a week.
After 6 months I was working out 6 times a week and the workouts had blown out to around 2 hours!

I was hitting the gym pretty hard, (and loving it) but I pulled some tendons in my right hand at work.
It meant I couldn’t train for 6 months, and needed an operation on my hand.I let my diet and training go and old habits slowly crept in.
I drank too much and ate too much junk food and of course my weight crept up and my gut just ballooned.

Time To Try Again

At the end of 2016 I decided to get fit and lose my belly fat again, but this time I was going to work out from home.
I brought some kettlebells, an ab wheel, some resistance bands and a medicine ball.
And I started tracking my food intake using an online app.By mid-2017 I had lost 6 kg and my energy levels had improved.

I was working out in my garage, or my lounge room and my workouts were around 30 minutes long.My stress levels are down, my diet is healthy and I am enjoying my workouts.
And what I am doing has worked.

BUT.......

I am only human. And a male human!

I still like a beer or a wine.
I like pizza while I watch the footy.
I like cheese and dips and biscuits as well.

So instead of fighting myself, I have worked out ways to still enjoy my lifestyle, but also to be in great shape and be as fit as I can.

I enjoy the occasional wine, not so much the pizza anymore and I had some cheese and biscuits last week.
Just not a whole packet of biscuits with 5 different cheeses washed down with a bottle of wine!
