Back in 1985 when I was 15 years old & just started training I brought myself Muscle & fitness. My inspiration was Mr Sylvester Stallone because of the Rocky movies. He was featured inside training at Santa Monica bodybuilding center. There was amazing pictures of him training there that was an inspiration to attain a physique like his. I trained for many years until I raised the bar & started competing in bodybuilding shows in 1997 & got hooked. I competed year after year to win the natural British title which was finally achieved 7 years later in 2003. I then came 2nd in the Worlds & was ecstatic.
2006 I wanted to raise the bar & win the World title as I was preparing for it I entered & won the British title again & finished the year with the Musclemania World title in Hollywood. During my holiday there just by coincidence the very gym I saw Sly training in was only a few blocks away! So I had to visit it & the owner George Pipasik was so welcoming as you will see.
Talk about going full circle!....
