Bryan Locke

Background

A successful teenage bodybuilder from Gander, Newfoundland, Canada. I have been bodybuilding for several years now and enjoy Judo, Boxing, and Jogging.

How did I get started? At the age of 16, I lost a fight, and I had one thing on my mind, get big, then get even.

I love the fact that I can set a goal and eventually reach it through hard work, dedication, and persistence.
