The bodybuilders at an Arbroath gym have been going from strength to strength at national competitions recently.

The Warehouse Gym in Arbroath is celebrating the success of member Alan Carnegie who has had success in recent bodybuilding competitions.

Alan (52) returned to competitive bodybuilding last month after a 15-year hiatus with good results in four Scottish championships.

At the Ardler Bodybuilding Show on April 6 Alan claimed first place in the Masters Over-50 category.

He followed this a week later by taking first in the Over-40s category at the MuscleXcess Classics at Lochgelly on April 13 and then second in the Masters Over-50 at the 2013 National Amateur Body Builders’ Association Mr and Ms Scotland event at Glenrothes.

After a short break Alan then competed in the UK Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation Scottish Championships in Paisley on May 26 and again carried off the top spot in the Masters Over-50.

Fellow member Lee Hunter will be following in Alan’s footsteps next week as he prepares for his first bodybuilding competition at the British Natural Bodybuilding Federation Scottish Championships in Perth on June 9.

Not content to let his members have all the fun, Warehouse owner Lee Page will also be hoping to make his mark next month as the former competitive bodybuilder and CrossFit athlete takes part in the Scottish Masters Open weight lifting competition in Scotstoun, Glasgow.

Lee said: “After not competing for 15 years Alan got the bug again after making the Warehouse his training base and I’ve also been keeping a watchful eye on Lee’s training and diet. We have so much going on at the gym competitively that we bring in a variety of athletes and our CrossFit programme is becoming increasingly popular.”
