After a few years and some injuries, my doctor told me to take a little break from explosive training (actual fighting training), but I could keep doing weightlifting. During this period I got really addicted to the workouts themselves.

I got into fitness when I was 15, a good friend of mine in secondary school got me training with him in his own gym. I used to go once a week and slowly I could see the results appearing on my body. It was just a matter of time until I became addicted to the weights and started going more regularly. Being very young at the time, I couldn’t afford to pay him so I used to clean up his gym as way of returning the favour back to him. I owe it to my friends Naj & Anj from Pure Muscles Gym in East London, otherwise I wouldn’t be in the shape that I’m currently in. My gains in the gym were becoming more noticeable than people were complimenting me which is a great feeling.
