Shaun, How did you get started  in bodybuilding?


I first got the bodybuilding bug at a very young age, my uncle was a bodybuilder, he didn’t actually compete, but he trained hard and had a great physique. I didn’t actually start competing until very late, 31 years of age!

It's a tough sport!,  so what keeps you motivated?

To be the best I can be and to be a role model for youth and anyone wanting to achieve their dreams.
