About me …
Yes, this is me – David Gordon. Thanks for wanting to find out a little about me, and I don’t blame you …
Who is behind The Healthy Insider?, what is it? and why should I bother checking it out?
So, who is David Gordon? Does he actually work out? Is he qualified to help me?
Okay! here goes. I’m a mid 40’s lover of healthy food & fitness from the UK who enjoys helping others learn how to get fit, lose weight, tone and build muscle.
Although I work full-time, I’m also a Fitness and Exercise Adviser – helping others by answering their questions about Fitness and Exercise, Nutrition, Diets and Weight Loss.
Why I started …
So why did I decide to start a Fitness blog?
Well, I’ve always been crazily into health & fitness, always telling people how to eat healthier and get more exercise into their routines.
Hek, I even got qualified as a Personal Trainer / Gym Instructor many years ago and enjoy pushing my physical limits (even with the occasional back injury!) It’s fun.
I’ve never had a problem with self-motivation, and want to make sure I can always keep up with my kids, and not be the dad on the side who cannot join in.
Whilst regularly seeing the questions people were asking on social media, it became obvious that exercise, fitness and weight loss were real talking points.
Everyone started asking me questions about how to lose weight? how to build muscle? or what the best exercise are?
From this point I knew I wanted to start my own fitness blog.
It’s a busy life …
I’m a husband, dad of two boys (two always hungry boys!) owner of 1 black cat, Cinders and some fish, which Cinders regularly enjoys watching close up!
Apart from doing a normal full-time job, as well as being a Fitness and Exercise Adviser, helping to run a busy family and run a fitness blog, I’m also regular contributor over on Quora.

Staying fit …
Let’s face it, when you look good, you feel good, right! Keeping fit does not have to mean hitting the gym for 3 hours a day, whilst wearing the latest in fashion & tech trends.
All you need is a pair of trainers! Get outdoors, breathe in some fresh air and move that body … feels good huh!
Have I competed in any major fitness events? no, but I have climbed the 3 largest peaks in the UK. I love hiking & martial arts too! I’ve done Judo, Karate, Thai-Boxing & more recently Kung Fu. One of my constant goals is HIGH KICKS ….. I just wish I could do those amazing kicks I see other people demonstrating ………. J E A L O U S !
It all starts here …
Healthy Food & Fitness …. hence The Healthy Insider was born! I’ll feature recipes, exercise, nutrition, fitness tips & trends I think will interest you, and hopefully if you like what you find, you’ll keep in touch and perhaps leave a comment or two.
Be honest, and let me know what you think (please be gentle!).
If there is something you would like me to feature, just get in touch 🙂
I know there are a gazillion other food and fitness blogs out there, but I felt like I wanted to share the stuff in my head with you … SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!
Why not! Go for it! most of my friends & family told me. Some thought I was crazy to try, but you only get from life what you put in. Enjoy.
Thank you …
If you got this far, thanks for taking the time to get to know me. I would be really grateful if you could tell everyone about me. If you like something on The Healthy Insider, please leave a comment so I know you popped by and enjoyed the read. I love comments, and will always try to respond as soon as I can.
I look forward to chatting with you soon.
Stay fit & healthy
