Very happy with both my recent orders. Thank you very much. I'm very impressed with your range and also how quickly I received both orders.

Back in March of 2006, Amino Z was released. As a result of my Australian BodyBlitz win, we received a little bit of publicity from IronMan magazine. But even with this publicity, we were only receiving 20-30 hits per day. Fast forward 12 months and we have now achieved well over a mammoth 405,000 hits!!! That figure absolutely blows me away!
Initially I launched the website with a collection of articles - most of which were written by Josh Dickinson. I also had a few questions & answers available on the website, alongside some useful calculators. Apart from that...there wasn't much else. So this would somewhat explain the lack of interest in the website in the very early stages.
Little additions go a very long way. Day by day, I have worked to improve this website bit by bit. New articles and questions & answers were being posted up on a regular basis. But then the addition of such things as our weekly newsletter, food nutritional information database and recipe section resulted in the traffic generated from this website to just explode! Then came some smaller additions such as our poll and quotes on the main page. Due to the enormous amount of positive feedback I have received, I also decided to add a little testimonials section up the top of each page.
The whole mission of Amino Z is to motivate, educate and inspire those who want to change their physique and lifestyle for the better. This philosophy stood true 12 months ago and still holds very true. Whilst there is an absolute wealth of information on Amino Z, in late 2006 I decided to launch my personal training career through the website. I realised that there is only so much that you can do by writing a generalised article. Sure, an article may get out to several thousands of people (as many of mine have) - but how many readers will undergo a life-changing experience by reading that article? On the other hand, working 1on1 with clients (either online or face-to-face) allows me to get down to the nitty gritty with them. This attention to detail is what truly aids my clients in achieving remarkable results. And that is so rewarding in itself.
So now there are well over 10,000 pages available on Amino Z. Interest continues to grow and I am more passionate than ever about the industry. A big thanks to all the contributors who have made this website possible. Also, a big shout out to all our visitors who continue to support Amino Z! We have some big things planned in 2007 - so stay tuned!
