I started lifting weights properly when I was 15 years old. I knew from then I wanted to get on stage.
My brother in law gave me a load of 1990’s Flex magazines (wish I still had them) but I kept them for years going through them over and over looking at pictures of what I thought was the freakiest physiques in the world. I had a particular favourite muscle group for each one, like Paul Dillet’s TRAPS, Lee Priest’s ARMS and Dorians Yates’ BACK etc.
As I got more and more into the sport and competed I then knew from the age of 17 I wanted a gym. I remember telling my Nan I’m gonna save for a gym but never got past £30. Time went on and I got to meet some good friends in 2008, friends that are life long. I got a job working for one of them, James Collier, for his brands Muscle Talk and 1RepMax. James helped me from day one and with out him I wouldn’t have nothing today.
In 2013, I officially opened Alpha Training Gym. From that day the business rocketed.
It was in 2014 that my brother, Harrie, and I had an idea. We wanted to branch out into promoting. We sat down came up with a plan and put it into action. Muscle Promotions was born. We did a 2 week tour around the country with Lee Priest covering over 1000 miles. This too was a great success and put Muscle Promotions firmly on the map.
2015 we decided to register Muscle Promotions as a limited company and expand again. We still have a tour, this time with the Legend that is Samir Bannout.
We came up with another great idea LEGENDS LIVE. Something that has never been done before and we are excited to watch this grow!
Alpha Training Gym is continually growing. With new members, new equipment and also fresh new building works, it is the only place worth training in Northamptonshire.
