Dean and I did an extended learning and photo shoot prep that saw me getting into shape I was really happy with, all while still managing to live a balanced life with my partner and still running my PT business to its full capacity. I learned a tonne and am still applying that today! Awesome experience.
Dean's wealth of experience combined with his knowledge, support and advice helped me take my physique this year to a level never experienced before.
This prep we took the flexible dieting approach and I have to say I will never go back to anything else. Allen allowed me to fit in some foods that would be classed as 'unhealthy' to the general population.
The changes to my physique/body composition have been incredible, and I was able to do it all without restrictive eating behaviour or eliminating food groups. Not only was my physical change impressive, but I was also able to change my mindset around my food and have a much healthier relationship with my food intake.
Flex Success were supportive, educated and confident and their system works and has proven results to match with dozens of athletes.
During my last comp prep I was applying evidence-based practices and I had a much better experience. After a few competitions with strict rules around meal timing, and food selection, it felt amazing to be able to eat whatever food I wanted to eat within my allocated targets.
To call Allen a coach takes away so much of what he actually is - a friend, a mentor, an athlete and someone I look up to in my everyday life. His selflessness as a coach is second only to his knowledge and ability to correctly apply strategy to help his clients achieve their desired goals and body composition results.
Dean was not only my best prep coach ever, he also taught me how to live a happy and healthy life after competing.
Success! When I first came to Allen he told me straight up that he was going to take me to nationals and make me a champion, who would've known I would be standing here today exactly that.
Working with Dalton for my very first IFBB comp was by far the best decision I ever made. Every area was covered, he wasn’t just focused on my training and nutrition but how I felt physically and mentally which as a female was really important to me.
Having the guidance and expertise of someone with vast amounts of knowledge has not only totally changed my body composition but enabled me to grow as a coach myself as I am forever leaning something new under his guidance.
At times during prep, I began to second guess myself but I was fortunate enough to have Allen there to reassure me everything was going to turn out fine.
He honestly gives 100% to all his athletes with the result speaks for itself, he practises what he preaches as do the rest of the Flex coaches which is very motivating.
I literally have too many good things to say about my prep with Allen not only in terms of him as a coach and the knowledge he brings but also as the fact he is an exceptional human being. He has always gone above and beyond to make everything easy stress free and understandable. I couldn't have asked for anyone better in my corner if I tried.

I can honestly say that Allen excelled at everything, from the copious amounts of help with my posing to the hours spent with me on show day. I encourage anyone who is competing to invest in a coach if it is financially possible for you!
Being motivated can only get you so far, having a “normal coach” can only drive you so far, but Allen went above and beyond for me. I would recommend him to basically anyone who wants to achieve anything fitness related.
I joined up with Dean for my first bodybuilding prep after a successful Australian kickboxing title prep with him years prior as I knew he could get me in shape. This time we focused on more on physique development and I have to say for a first-time competitor I was stoked as we brought A grade conditioning. I learned a tonne, got leaner than I thought was possible and felt healthy the entire time.
Dean goes above and beyond in regards to athlete support (physically and mentally), education and extremely efficient feedback. I am a massive supporter of Dean and also the entire Flex Success crew, their impact is an incredible boost to a very misunderstood industry.
