The Brains and the Brawn!

I think it is fair to say we now have over 1,000 individual customers that use our store for their GASP or Better Bodies clothing (we can’t thank you enough for that ES). From time to time I get chatting with one or two customers more personally on our live chat service and just once in a blue moon I get chatting to someone who stands out with all the hard work they put in.

Nothing could be truer of that as when I got chatting to Craig Hurst earlier this year when he ordered his Better Bodies Pro Boardshorts from us.

The Brains and the Brawn!

Craig, who is only 23 years old, a specialist diagnostic Radiographer, has trained over the north-east for 3 years doing a Bsc degree. He qualified and worked at Durham hospital (University hospital of North Durham) for 2 years before moving back to his home town hospital, Cumberland hospital.

Following his academic achievements Craig set about his first competition and started prep in January 2017. In his first ever show, the PCA Cumbrian Classic, he entered the Men's Physique and the Mr Cumbria categories with the Mr Cumbria category only chosen the day before.

Craig came 2nd in the Men's Physique category and won the Mr Cumbria category on his very first attempt!

These results earned him an entry to the PCA British Finals in Birmingham.

Take a well deserved bow young man, well done from all of us at Global Gym Wear!
