By now you know probably know about him, but that doesn’t make him any less awesome. Yep, Mark Smith, disabled bodybuilder legend, has continually deified the odds.
After losing his leg in a training accident at the age of 26, he had a few choices to make. During his rehab he became a qualified football coach, boxing coach and personal trainer. It was in the latter that he found his new vocation.
From personal training, came bodybuilding, and the renewed buzz “of being shot at”.
Amy Champion is on the rise. The aspiring bodybuilding has totally transformed her body and lost a whopping 12 stone in the process. Finally, she is starting to get noticed.
After speaking to Amy in June 2014, we decided to feature her body transformation. Since then she’s enjoyed a professional photoshoot, featured in national papers and has a future in figure competitions ahead of her.

We might rabbit on about all sorts of supplements here (which should come as no surprise really). But at the core of our talk about whey protein and discount sales, there is the also one overriding desire. To look after our bodies.
So why do we workout? We thought it would be a good idea to get some different reasons from keen as mustard athletes.
We asked our Elite Athletes why they work out, and this is what they said.
