1. Introduction to Fitness Over Fifty
I’ve put an introduction to Fitness Over Fifty and my own fitness progress over the past few years in this short introduction video.
This gives a good background as to my pre-fitness days, how I got to where I am now with the help of my coach Rob Riches, and what I’m seeking to achieve in both myself and others – and how I can help.
2. Contest videos
With a great deal of nerves, and not at all sure I was doing something sensible, I entered my first ever contest in April 2012. It was the British Championships organised by Miami Pro. I entered both Fitness Model and Muscle Model classes in the over 50’s age group (of course!).
This was my first ever contest, find out how I got on by viewing the contest video.
Since that first one, I’ve now been in 10 contests, the most recent being in September 2017 in Muscle Beach, California. See the highlights of that one here.
3. TV Documentary
A TV documentary about my fitness journey, both my own progress and now how I’m working with clients, was made for the Community Channel. It has been shown on satellite and cable globally and on BBC i-player.
Called ‘Fat to Fit at Fifty’, it features contributions from people who have been instrumental in my fitness progress – including my coach Rob Riches, my personal trainer Russell Lee, photographer Simon Howard, magazine editors John Shepherd and Andreas Michael, my training partner Alex Hughes, some of my clients – oh yes, and Jenny, my wife! And you can also see how I got in the Miami Pro World Fitness Model Championships.
