- Location: Nottingham, United Kingdom
I’m Liam McAleese, 28, from Nottingham, and I’m a fully qualified electrician. I was blessed with the opportunity to work on the Olympic stadium, where I had the chance to meet some inspirational athletes.
I first got into training when I was 18 years old, and was becoming a semi-pro footballer for my local team but unfortunately sustained an injury that prevented me from playing. Because I always like to keep active, I took up bodybuilding.
When I started on this path, I set myself realistic goals, kept hungry and trained like a machine. I feel I have proved that achieving your desirable physique is possible if you put your mind to it and give it your all. My motto is “you vs. you,” meaning you can only be the best version of yourself.
My advice for people training is to stay focused on your goals and dreams. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so they say, so persevere, stay dedicated and you’ll be over the moon with the results you achieve.
I’m a massive believer in that no matter how successful you become in the fitness industry, you should always stay humble. Be confident, but never cross the line of arrogance – it’s not attractive!
I made my debut on stage at the UKBFF Cumbria Classic as a men’s tall physique athlete, and placed second and received an invite to the British finals in Nottingham on October 3. I plan on eventually earning my pro card. I am currently just making my weaknesses my strengths in the gym, and hopefully I will be able to add additional trophies in the cabinet this year when I compete at the UKBFF British finals 2016.
Being an electrician means working extra-long hours, a lot of physical work and working away from home the majority of the time, but I love it! Even though I work long hours, I always find time to train and keep on top of my diet! I do believe that attaining that healthy, balanced lifestyle is important – having the right balance between work, family and training is essential to staying happy and enjoying life in general. A strong, healthy mind will help you build a strong, healthy body!
