Weight Gain & Bulking Powders

Why do you want to gain weight?

OK, first let me ask you a question: what’s your goal? If you want to bulk up or gain weight then why do you need a powder? Have you never heard of McDonald’s, Pizza Hut or pork pies? They will help you to gain weight and bulk up really quickly and they taste flipping lovely.

…Oh, you don’t want to get fat? So what do you want to do?

Build muscle & lose fat

If you’re like most people, you want to reduce your body fat, gain some muscle and increase your strength and fitness. So, although you might pack on a bit of bulk by eating Big Macs and pies, 80% of that is likely to be fat!

Similarly, weight gain powders are just powders that contain lots of fat and sugar. Yes, you’ll get bigger but you might as well go to the chippy – it tastes better and at least you’ll get a bigger intake of protein from the fish!

No short cuts

There really are no short-cuts to increasing muscle and losing fat.  You’ll need the right amount of calories, an appropriate intake of protein as well as enough carbs and healthy fats for good health and energy.

Dan Sroda
Personal Trainer at Reach Personal Training
Dan Sroda is a Personal Trainer based in Birstall, serving Leeds and Bradford.

As the owner and lead trainer at Reach Personal Training, I am responsible for the philosophy of the business and overseeing client programmes.

My mission is for Reach Personal Training to be synonymous with a long-term, real-life approach to health and fitness. We help our clients to integrate health and fitness into their busy lives. We don't do fads. We don't do crash diets. We do "Fitness For Life".

I have a family. I’ve always worked (and not always in the fitness industry). I have housework and shopping to do. I have a REAL life. So I know what it takes to balance a real life with a sustainable approach to health and fitness.

If I can do it then anyone else can too. All you need is the desire to make eating healthily and keeping fit a priority in your life. An hour a day, thirty minutes a day, even fifteen minutes a day of exercise, supported with a healthy diet based on whole foods, is all it takes to make steady long-term progress towards looking and feeling fantastic.

I have a few simple values upon which I have built Reach Personal Training. Only personal trainers who share these values will be part of our team.

- Friendliness. Just be a genuinely nice person, it's dead simple and it's the best way to live. Smile as much as possible and try to see the best in every situation.

- No fads. No pseudoscience. My background in academia makes me question everything. There is so much nonsense in the fitness industry, mainly because some people are in it to make money so they'll believe anything and questioning it will mean they can't believe in the product. We are different. We do what works. We use science to create our programmes and we never put profit over effectiveness. You will NEVER find Herbalife or Forever Living in our studio!


The Reach Personal Training approach to health and fitness is no-nonsense but fun, friendly and motivating. We don’t do short-cuts or fad diets. Our FAT LOSS and BODY TONING training programmes are based on science and common-sense and they get long-lasting results.
