Who am I?

My name is Riley Byrne and I was born with the condition Pectus Excavatum and have improved the appearance of my chest  through proper exercise involving a combination of weight and cardiorespiratory training in conjunction with stretching and breathing exercises and a nutritious diet. See my non-surgical Pectus Excavatum transformation below.

Pectus Excavatum transformation

Pectus was a massive burden on my life, negatively affecting my self confidence. I would go to great lengths to avoid taking off my shirt and was depressed about my body and it needed to change. I imagine if you are reading this then you have experienced similar feelings of negative body image. I investigated the surgical option but it was so expensive, and scary and resulted in years of rehab which I was not comfortable with. So I sought an alternate treatment to conquer my condition.

 At the age of 16 I joined a gym but I had no idea what I was doing.  It was ineffective isolation training with no intensity, and I was eating poorly and did not achieve the results I was hoping for. It was only one year ago that I started doing research and became passionate about fitness and nutrition and found how, to once and for all improve my body. I began lifting properly, doing stretches and breathing exercises to correct my posture, grow my muscles, shred my fat and make my body one that I am now proud of.

I am now a qualified personal trainer, a male model, involving a lot of topless pictures (who would have thought !) and am most importantly very happy with not only my body but myself in general.
I am a huge believer that exercise can greatly improve the appearance of Pectus.
