I have learned a lot about strength and how important it is to be doing the right sort of training for my sport also to stay healthy and positive about everything in life not just training

WHS: What made you contact WHS?
AP: I used to train in commercial gym week in week out not really training towards anything. I needed a challenge! I looked into various sports and different gyms around the area to see what they offered and I came across WHS and saw they offered strongman and thought yes I want to try that. Got in touch with Tom and started training.

WHS: What do you feel you have achieved at WHS?
AP: I have only been at WHS for 7 months now and in that time I have achieved a few things. The First is strength, my strength has increased massively in the few short months I have been there. Secondly I won my first strongman competition ‘Champs of the Future’. WHS helped me prepare physically and mentally for my competition and I won by ten points. Thirdly before I started at WHS I wasn’t very confident in myself but training with the people at WHS and in such a great atmosphere has made me a lot more confident.

WHS: What was your training like before WHS?
AP: It was standard and boring! I wasn’t really training for anything in particular all I did was look on different websites trying to find the next best training programme or lose fat get muscle programmes! It was the same thing week in week out no variation at all, it was totally pointless.

WHS: What’s your training like now?
AP: One word AWESOME! I love my training how it challenges me, pushes me beyond what I thought I was capable of. I also like the fact that at WHS they will find your weakness and help you work on it not just give you a standard programme for every person who walks through their door; each programme is unique and individual to that person. Also the variation of different exercise you are always learning new things and different techniques.

WHS: What is unique about the training we do?
AP: Everything! I have noticed that every programme is unique to every person, it is also explained to you if you have any questions and always has the science to back the training up, also that all the trainers at WHS strive to make their training better by always learning new things or going on courses to better their knowledge.

WHS helped me prepare physically and mentally for my competition and I won by ten points

WHS: What was your normal nutrition like before WHS?
AP: Not very good It was the same with the training I was looking online to find the best quickest fix I could

WHS: How have the consults helped you?
AP: They have helped me learn a lot about training and nutrition; it has helped me set goals I thought I would never be able to achieve also have helped me stay focused in my training

WHS: What have you learned?
AP: I have learned a lot about strength and how important it is to be doing the right sort of training for my sport also to stay healthy and positive about everything in life not just training.

WHS: What would you tell others about your experience at WHS?
AP: If you are willing to work train hard and put every ounce of blood sweat and tears into your training this is the best place for you! You will get the results you want if you put the hard work in and with some guidance you will get there a lot quicker.

WHS: What’s next for you?
AP: To carry on working hard in training and get to England’s or UK strongest man final with the help of WHS

  • Aaron Page Wins England’s Strongest Man Southern Qualifier

    It was one of those days that came around much quicker then I expected. One day I was at a wedding, then the next day…BAM…Comp day!!

    Training for this comp had been going well although my deadlift was a bit hit and miss but sometimes that’s just the way things are! My mind set going into the comp was to make sure I finish in the top 4 to qualify for England’s strongest man 2016.

    I got to the venue early to support my client Mike Dove in the novice competition before the qualifier. He was doing great until he decided to take a dive with the chain yoke and ended up splitting his head open resulting in retiring from the competition. I think he’s been watching too much Euro 2016. Just so everyone knows he is fine and will be back in training soon!

    The time came upon us to sign in and get kitted up, nerves had started to kick in as I knew the deadlift was first. Time to draw numbers…..9 was happy with that!!

    Event one: Max Deadlift 13466286_1071781882876614_3057306027513798926_n
    The bar started at 280kg on these massive tyres which you had to stand on a platform to get too. 280kg went straight up no problem as did 320kg and 340kg. Many of the competitors at this point had dropped off.  360kg was next up and again a few fail the lift so I knew if I were to get it, it would be good points and a new Personal Best! It flew up for me and I achieved 1st place, joint with 2 others, for the event.

    Event two: 320kg Chain yoke
    After watching all the novice and opens do this I just needed to finish with a good pace, no drops and placing would take care of itself. I was up with a slow wobbly start but managed to get moving and finished a respectable 4th place.


    Event three: Overhead Medley
    Any kind of overhead event I always enjoy and this was no exception. The 1st implement was a giant 130kg keg. I cleaned it to the13466286_1071781882876614_3057306027513798926_n shoulder and stumbled every so slightly. I kept my composure and adjusted myself and gave a tidy push press. Next up was a 140kg a
    xle. I popped it on my power belly then onto my chest and quickly overhead in one swift movement. Moving swiftly onto the 155kg log, I clean & pressed this like it wasn’t there! I was the first to make it to the 90kg Monster Dumbbell and took a split second to gee up the crowd and then one to compose myself. I popped it up to the shoulder, stabilised it then a quick leg drive & dropped underneath it. Standing up with the dumbbell overhead I gave a thumbs up to the crowd for good measure!


    1st place in this event and the only man to complete all of the implements!

    Event four: Car Deadlift Hold 13466286_1071781882876614_3057306027513798926_n
    Any one who knows me know my grip is not the best but I’ve been working hard on it! The weight in hands was around 300kg and I my target was to to get over 30 seconds. Up the car went and I managed to hold on for 34 seconds to get me 5th place.

    Event five: Medley 2 x tyres 100kg 1 x 130kg keg x 20m each13466286_1071781882876614_3057306027513798926_n
    As Martin Cee would say, the scores on the doors had me in 1st place but only by half a point. Colin had been pushing me the whole day so I knew I would have to win the event to take 1st place.

    We both started like grey hounds out after a rabbit with the first tyre. I came back with the 2nd but as I put mine down it bounced so I had to secure it before I went back for the keg. Colin was ahead of me I managed to get some ground back by sprinting in between. I grabbed the keg and held it high and away I went up the run way. Colin stumbled on the keg which meant I secured 1st place. I wouldn’t let him give up so I went over and pushed him to the end because that’s what this sport is about supporting each other!

    Not sure what the final scores were but it was close. I look forward to competing with the guys again at England’s strongest man 2016

    Thank you to everyone who came to watch and support me now time to bring on England’s strongest man
