How Did You Get Started?

I started weight training at the age of 17 to get stronger for martial arts and athletics. I trained in a local sports centre for a few years while still doing martial arts and athletics. A friend suggested we try out this gym called Dells.

The first time I went I was hooked. The gym was very 'Basic' what would now be called 'Hardcore.' One of my first training partners was a "little guy" called Bertil Fox.

I was very lucky over the years to have some very good and very accomplished training partners like Brian Buchanan, Ian Harrison and Patrick Nicholls.

I now own my own Health Club with my wife Helen who was the original Panther in the British Gladiators. The Club is aptly named "Panthers Gym." www.panthersgym.com

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

  • Aim for consistency over perfection.
  • Don't neglect good form for ego.
  • Get good reliable training partners - 'they make a big difference.'
