In The Spotlight with Garry Turner
Occupation: HSC Biology teacher / Personal Trainer and Nutritional Consultant and a Commercial Model.
Years in the fitness industry:
Mainstream “fitness” ie Mens Health magazine etc: 7 years.
What made you decide to compete in your first Physique and Modeling event?
Good mates with Ben Abstacker who pushed me into doing it. Plus I’d done a variety of Men’s Health/Mens Fitness covers already and wanted a new challenge. I’ve been training Abs for so long for fitness magazines and clients, that I figured I already had a very solid base for stage competition. I’ve also been following many of the IFBB pro’s online in the quest for the Olympia Title and I love that there is now a class for guys to have aesthetic physiques, without the need for being too muscular, which would kill my modeling career.
