Smashing through the age barrier and beyond
58 year old Paul Gibney proves that there is no limit to what can be achieved with knowledge, dedication and a passion for the health & fitness lifestyle
Sometimes we all need a little reminder that—as clichéd as it may be—age isn’t anything more than a number and the only thing stopping you from going out there and doing whatever it is you really want to do is you.
58 year old Paul Gibney is training harder than he did more than four decades ago. Let’s rewind back to 1971 where 12 year old Paul started
training with school buddies at lunch time on a old set of weights the school had. By the end of that year Paul I had his own weights at home and
commenced training like a madman.
Paul says “I remember seeing photos of Arnold in popular magazines when I was 9 and thinking that he looked awesome. I always admired great
physiques and strong people and the physiques of the 50s, 60s and 70s like Reeves, Draper, Howorth, Zane, Nubret, and the incomparable Sergio Oliva. All broad shouldered, small waists, stunning symmetry and remarkable amounts of detail. Once I started training, I was genuinely loved the feeling of training, the pump, increasing strength, etc. I was hooked.”
