Coach Spotlight - Jamie Lissenburg



What does fitness mean to you?

Fitness means a lot to me. It’s an opportunity to better myself, physically and mentally; to be strong and confident and be able to do what I want to do. It’s an opportunity to be a role model to my kids, to be able to play with them from dawn to dusk. It’s an opportunity to inspire others to better themselves and realise their potential.

When did you start your fitness journey?

Fitness has always been a part of my life. I played football from the age of 8 until my early 20's when my daughter was born. Whilst I did go to the gym before I stopped playing football, it wasn't until after that I became more serious about training. 

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

It's massively helped me with my mental health and helps to clear my mind, providing me with clarity. 

What do you bring to the Physique Academy?

Life and training experience. I got married, moved into our first house and became a parent in a very short space of time. Those experiences have helped me shape the way I train, handle myself and view situations. 

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

  • Passionate
  • Supportive
  • Patient

Why should people join the Physique Academy?

To get results they never believed possible! 

What advice would you give to people starting their fitness journey?

Get started. The best time is right now. Start small and build from there. Start making the choices that the person you want to become would make. 

What is the best thing about being a part of the Physique Academy?

The brotherhood. There's a real sense of community within the academy working together to transform the lives of men for the better. 

What is your favourite style of training?

I love strength training. Recently I've been getting into powerlifting with the intention to compete. I do also enjoy a bodybuilding style of training. 

Why is routine and discipline important to you?

It helps to set out my day - to ensure that the stuff that needs to get done, gets done! 

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

Injury-wise, I've been quite fortunate. A few minor injuries over the years but my biggest setback has been my own self-belief and constantly comparing myself to others. I've come to realise that everyone is on their own journey and at different points in that journey. Comparing yourself to others is wasting your own energy.
