Here at Leodis Gym, we like giving back to our members, so each week we will be giving a shoutout to a member, who has either been working hard, competing or looks amazing. This week we are giving our shoutout to Jason Aiken - Here is what he had to say about the NABBA North East Championships:
Some of my favourite shots from the NABBA North East championships. An unbelievable experience for me, I worked harder for this contest than I have for anything and it showed in the condition I brought on the day. This 5 month contest prep was the most challenging thing I've ever put myself through but also the most rewarding.. the goal was to simply get into the shape of my life and get on stage, I really had no other expectations' so to place 4th in a very competitive class of 10 and qualify for the Britain finals and come away with an awesome trophy just blew me away.. Still can't quite believe it.
I have to say a massive thank you everyone who supported me and offered kind words of encouragement through the prep and of course my Mrs who has been an absolute star throughout, words don't do justice to how much I love her.
And I have to give a HUGE amount of credit to my prep coach Carl Stannard, without his help with nutrition, training, guidance and overall support through the process I simply could not have achieved my goal. Not only is he a brilliant coach but a genuine, honest and decent guy who will go the extra mile for his clients/friends. People like that really are hard to find these days, if anybody is looking to compete or get in shape for holiday, wedding or just looking to lead a healthier fitter lifestyle.. this man is the real deal.
