Coach Spotlight - Dylan McConachy



What Does Fitness mean to you?

It’s everything to me. It’s not just something I do; it’s part of my identity. Consistently pushing to better myself in all areas of my life is really important to me, and I believe that training has allowed me to feel more comfortable with the uncomfortable. I love all forms of training, but my preference is Hybrid - there’s no better feeling than being strong and fit at the same time.

When did you start your fitness journey?

My journey began seriously when I was 22. After being involved in high performance for my sport, I was exposed to high standards with regard to training and preparation. After a few years of doing the partying thing after I left school, I got my act together and started to prioritize my fitness and health. From that point onwards, it’s been a huge part of my life.

How has fitness helped you in other areas of your life?

By pushing myself to my edges in the gym or on the running track, I’ve been able to develop a much stronger resilience mentally and emotionally. The growth and maturity I’ve gone through as a result of this is a by-product of my willingness to go one step further in my fitness.

What do you bring to the Physique Academy?

Besides a wealth of knowledge on training and nutrition, I bring a profound understanding of Personal Development. Having gone through numerous experiences with Personal Development coaches, I know personally how important it is for each and every one of us to take it seriously. In order to grow and progress as a Man, we first need to fully know Ourselves. I’m incredibly excited to share this side of coaching with Physique Academy and my clients.

What are your THREE biggest strengths when it comes to being a coach?

  1. I look at health from a holistic standpoint. I don’t just want you to be jacked and fit; I want you to be the best version of yourself, for you and your family.
  2. I’m really easy to work with. I will challenge you and push you, but there’s always time for a laugh here and there.
  3. Accountability - I will consistently remind you of your DEEPEST WHY, especially when it gets tough!

Best Thing about Being Part of the Physique Academy?

Being part of something that is greater than myself. There are so many things I can’t pinpoint one in particular. The high standards that we expect of each other to get the best results for our clients is another big one.

Favorite Style of Training?

I love training Hybrid.

Why is routine and discipline important to you?

Without routine and discipline, I’m not living in congruence with my values. Through both, you can set yourself up for success, while at the same time free yourself from a busy mind.

Setback in Training and How You Overcame It?

A few broken bones in my early 20s really forced me to reinvent the wheel. Only being able to use one arm for 12 weeks was tough, but rather than throwing everything away, I focused on doing the absolute best I could for the situation I was in. This looked like; training legs more than twice a week, keeping my forearm muscles engaged (stress ball), and plenty of walking. What helped me overcome this setback was my perception of the situation. Our perception of life can dictate our experience - It doesn’t have to always be bad!
