Bio from Mark. I began lifting weights at the age of 16 in 1982 . 39 years later , now aged 55 , I still love the challenge and rewards of resistance training. I have worked as an instructor in a gym, advised bodybuilders for contests, as well as judging such contests . I have used the strength and musculature gained to help in athletics competition , but my biggest success has been in competitive bodybuilding which has not only provided me with numerous victories and high placings , not only on the UK , but in Europe, the USA and Canada. The highlight being in 2012 , when aged 47 I won the BNBF Overall Masters Title and in the process gained my DFAC Pro Card.
