I didn't want to compete to just win but to also really enjoy my first taste of competitive body-building and put on a good performance. I think I achieved both. I thought the show was extremely well run in terms of organisational and facilities - which then allowed me to concentrate on my own performance. So thanks to the NPA and it's officials.
Big shout out to my right hand man Neil for sorting just about everything out for me on the day. Another big up to body-building champions Dominic Haley, Akin Fagbohun and Ricky Moore for fabulous advice and direction leading up to the show.
Also, thanks for all the love shown from my friends, family and personal training clients. I have a feeling that this body-building journey isn't over just yet!
