  • Zack George is one of the world’s top CrossFit athletes, a fitness influencer and officially the UK’s Fittest Man 2020. Zack’s story is one of dramatic change, resilience and hard work. As a child and early teenager, Zack was severely overweight and deeply unhappy in his body. It was his father’s offer of a Playstation to lose some weight that became the catalyst for change in Zack’s life. 

    After realising what he could achieve with hard work and determination, Zack put his mind to accomplishing greater challenges by taking up a variety of sports and in 2013, Zack came across a YouTube video documenting the 2013 CrossFit Games and from that moment on, set himself the goal of making it as an individual athlete to the CrossFit Games. In 2015, Zack opened CrossFit BFG in Leicester and began to seriously focus on his training to become a CrossFit Games contender. Zack went on to achieve first place in the UK CrossFit Open 2020. Unfortunately Zack is injured at the moment and can’t take part in the Games in 2021, we wish him all the best and know he’ll be back!

  • Stephen Hendry dominated the game of snooker in his prime. He won the World Championship in 1990 at just 21 years of age, a record that still stands today.

    The Scotsman played on for a further 27 years and in that time he topped the world rankings for eight consecutive seasons, won seven world title wins, six Masters titles and five UK Championships. Dubbed the ‘King of the Crucible’, Stephen changed the game and many would argue that he is the greatest snooker player of all time.

    Stephen retired in 2012 and became a regular face of BBC’s snooker coverage, 

    but now, after an eight-year absence, he will return to snooker’s main circuit.
