'Teach, Motivate and Inspire' are the three words used by both men to describe what they do, we spoke to them and this is what they had to say about their profession:

What got you into YouTube?

'It was actually John's idea. We had seen the same mistakes over and over in the gym, but no-one likes to be told they are doing something wrong especially in the gym environment. So we thought we'd make a few videos just throwing out free help and people seemed to respond really well.'

What is the best element of what you do?

'The best thing is the variety, we get to do so many crazy things whilst still keeping in with our message of health and balance.'

What do you see happening to the future of YouTube?

'We feel YouTube will just keep growing as a platform and creative outlet for people.'

Has what you've seen made you want to start your own YouTube channel? Do you want to educate the world on one of your passions? Then go ahead, what is stopping you? You never know, you could be the next Lean Machines.
