How did you get started with bodybuilding?
In the beginning my motivation to hit the gym hard was to help relieve emotions left over from the end of my football career. These slowly evolved back into the competitiveness I had while I was still playing. I wasn’t sponsored, had no coaches, and would take the train to school without paying for tickets so I could afford my supplements. I was determined to do something that no one else around me thought was possible. That was my motivation initially. Thereafter, my motivation was fuelled by my wins at Fitness Britain, Muscle Mania in Paris, and Model America in Las Vegas. The wave of people inspired by my story is amazing and this is my main motivator.
