Hi My name is Jamie Alderton, im 26 years of age from Bognor Regis in West Sussex. At the age of 18 I joined the British Army and spent 7 years in there deploying all over the world on exercises and operations including a 6 month tour of Baghdad, Iraq.
I left the British Army in December 2009 where I moved back to my home town to start civilian life. Little did I know how difficult it would be without the “Green Machine” Army looking over your shoulder every minute and I started to lose that focus and determination I had built up in my years of armed service.
It was in early Feb 2010 when the guy that owned my local gym came to me and said there was a Natural Bodybuilding competition in a few months time and I should give it a go! This was exactly what I needed! something to focus on and a reason to get up in the morning so I set myself on a strict Diet and Fitness regime and 12 weeks later I was standing up on stage in my first ever competition.
I finished 2nd place out of 13 competitor and qualified for the British Championships and My road to the fitness industry started from here!
Since I have started I have entered a wide variety of contests and have been lucky to have picked up two sponsors along the way!
