Who is your inspiration

I follow a few people that inspire me with their training and progress videos Trained by JP motivates me a lot through his style of training, Dallas Mccarver was always a good one for me to watch too and still is. My coach is a big one for me as from day 1 he had more confidence in me than myself.

Who do you think is the greatest and most influential bodybuilder/fitness athlete in history

Flex wheeler is a massive favourite. I don't think there has been a better physique since him. Dexter Jackson is amazing to still be able to make such amazing results and get better each time and compete for as long as he has . Arnold is a clear one from what he has achieved since retiring from bodybuilding and what he still puts into the sport up to this day along with his many other achievements is crazy.

What are your future goals in your bodybuilding/fitness career

My future goal is to constantly improve my physique and present it better on stage each show I do. I only want to get better and better and I really wanna place 1st next year and break the top 3 in British finals and if I get another Invite to the Arnold's, I want to Break the top 6.
