I have always been passionate about sculpting my body and have a long-term love affair with wrestling and MMA, which give me the opportunity to push myself and realise my personal power.
In addition to my passion for wrestling, I have been boxing for 17 years and kick boxing and doing Muay Thai and MMA for 10 years. I train 6 days a week and it is this natural focus and discipline for physical excellence which brought me to bodybuilding. People always assumed I was a professional bodybuilder and often asked me where I was next competing, so 2 years ago I decided I was going to give myself a new goal and take to the bodybuilding stage.
Being invited to guest at the Hercules Olympia WABBA World Qualifier in 2013 was an honour and a delight and so I decided to do something a little different. To the best of my knowledge, never before has a bodybuilder been brought to his knees on stage and this is exactly what I did, making this big, strong, Alpha male my subservient as he crawled on all fours to gasps from the audience and disbelief from the judges. This, to me, was an ultimate example of power, using the strength of both my honed body and focussed mind, my personal power, in this way.
