Coach Spotlight - Houston Chambwera



What Does Fitness mean to you? 

There are many aspects of life that we may not have control over. However, I believe that taking charge of our fitness is an empowering choice that we do have control over. By prioritizing our physical well-being, we gain a sense of personal power and control that extends beyond other areas of life.

When did you start your fitness journey?

At the age of 15, I embarked on my fitness journey, driven by the experiences of being bullied. Those challenging moments served as a catalyst, propelling me towards self-improvement and the pursuit of becoming the best version of myself.

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

Fitness has had a profound impact on various facets of my life, teaching me a valuable lesson: with the right mindset and unwavering persistence, I have the ability to transform the seemingly impossible into a tangible reality. This belief, instilled through my fitness journey, has permeated into all areas of my life, fostering a sense of confidence and determination that empowers me to overcome challenges and achieve greatness.

What do you bring to the Physique Academy?

What I bring to the Physique Academy is a deep understanding and relatability to the struggles of self-confidence and disbelief in oneself. Having personally experienced the feeling of being at the bottom of the pile, I empathize with individuals facing similar challenges. My journey has equipped me with the resilience and determination necessary to rise above the obstacles that life throws our way. By sharing my own transformative experiences, I aim to inspire others and provide them with the tools and support they need to conquer their own hurdles and achieve their goals.

What are your three biggest strengths as a coach?

As a coach, my three biggest strengths are relatability, everyday man wisdom (from being a father and having worked a 9-5 job) and being a lifelong student of mental resilience.

Why should people join the physique academy?

People should join the Physique Academy because in a world of isolation, it is crucial for men to unite and surround themselves with like-minded individuals who strive to become better versions of themselves. By joining the academy, they will find a supportive community of men who are committed to personal growth and transformation. Together, they can share experiences, provide encouragement, and inspire each other to reach new heights in their fitness journeys.

Why should people join the physique academy?

The advice I would offer to individuals embarking on their fitness journey is that the moment you complete your first repetition, or meticulously weigh your initial meal, marks the profound instant when your life undergoes a transformative shift that will endure forever. One of the most remarkable aspects of being a member of the Physique Academy is the realization that you are not alone on your fitness journey.

What is your favourite style of training?

Old school bodybuilding.

How important is routine to you?

The reason why routine and discipline hold immense significance for me is comparable to a boat adrift on the open sea without direction, endlessly drifting and making no progress.

Have you ever had a setback in training and how did you overcome this?

Yes, from toxic relationships to debilitating injuries, the path I undertook to overcome these challenges was paved with the mental toughness I diligently cultivated through years of arduous and gritty training.
