Hi, I'm Tone Barnbrook – "The Muscle Dad Mentor."

You might know me from Instagram, but here's what I'm really about:

Champion Bodybuilder Turned Personal Coach:

My bodybuilding wins prove I walk the walk. Now, I help men 35-75 transform their bodies and mindsets.

Fat Loss, Muscle Building, Anything In Between:

No matter your starting point or goals, I'll tailor a plan that gets you where you want to be.

The Wisdom Only Experience (and a Few Tough Battles) Can Teach you:

I'm not just about workouts. I'll guide your nutrition, recovery, and the mental game for longterm strength and improvement.

Ready to level up? 

let's craft your custom path to the best shape of your life!

Build strength, lose fat and have more energy.

I always start with your goals. Then we’ll work together to develop a custom-made program to help you eat, move, and live better—in a way that works for your body, and your own lifestyle.

Get health benefits beyond weight loss.

My science-based coaching approach accomplishes a lot more than just teaching you how to workout and eat healthier.. In the end, it won't matter what you lose as much as what you gain: knowledge, control, and the assurance that comes with knowing you can accomplish anything.

I'll support you every step of the way

I'll take away all the guesswork and give you the accountability, direction, and encouragement you need to stay on track no matter what life throws at you. This is a team effort.

No more crazy diets or unrealistic workouts.

You don't need to go to extremes to achieve incredible outcomes. I'll assist you in achieving your objectives without turning your life upside down

i will keep track of your progress, find out what is working best for you and make amendments where necessary.

You will get weekly check-ins where I will give you honest feedback and encouragement. 

Done right

one-on-one coaching.

There will be no cookie-cutter programmes here. I'll develop a custom strategy that's suited to your exact goals, needs, and interests.  Online coaching is as effective, if not more then an in person trainer.  And it's effective. Why? Because I'm dedicated to assisting you in achieving your fitness goals.

My Champion Mindset Transforms Lives

I'm not just a personal trainer, strength coach, and nutritionist. I'm an 8x National Bodybuilding Champion who turned a cancer diagnosis into a catalyst for helping others achieve their ultimate fitness goals.

In 1996, holding my Mr. Wales trophy, I asked, "Why just transform myself?"

That's when I vowed to share my knowledge, experience, and relentless drive with the world.

Then, in 2020, cancer and COVID lockdown struck. But I wouldn't let them define me. Instead, I used the isolation to become a certified fitness and nutrition coach, finding a powerful purpose in a dark time.

Today, I'm cancer-free, healthier than ever, and my clients are smashing their targets.



Because they feel the power of my champion-forged expertise:

  • NASM Level 2 Fitness Instructor

  • NASM Level 3 Personal Trainer

  • OTA Online Trainer Certification Level 1

  • Clean Health Strength Systems Level 1 & 2

  • Precision Nutrition Certified Nutrition Coach PN1

Ready to unleash your inner champion?

I'll guide you to a stronger, healthier, more confident you!

Clients and Results

When it comes to finding a fitness coach that trains you as an entire person, Tony Barnbrook is the perfect fit. Not only does he possess a strong knowledge base on nutrition and fitness, but has the actual life experience to understand how to create the best program for your individual needs. I have been working with him for only 4 months now, but have experienced results and an overall improvement in the quality of my life that other trainers simply could not provide. I can only imagine what goals I will achieve with his guidance in the time to come. James Taylor ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
