Last month, Anton spoke out about how issues he faced during childhood pushed him towards a career in the fitness industry.
Anton said: “Basically my story is I was overweight as a kid myself and I went through a lot of issues.
“Then I finally found fitness, it completely changed my life, and from then on I knew I wanted to help others to do the exact same thing.”
“In the last couple of years I got a little bit lost. I’m gonna be honest with you. I got lost in what I was doing and who was I because of obvious reasons.
“Coming back to online coaching on a daily basis has really made me feel better about myself.
“It really has shown me that my purpose in life is really to help others achieve amazing results and really help them be the best versions of themselves.”
