On the 8th of August in 2013 I entered my first UKBFF Men's Physique competition in a little town in southern England called Dorchester. I was so excited to finally get to show all my hard work and dedication on a stage together with people sharing my passion for fitness. I must say that I was really nervous as well, since I would have six professional judges sitting in front of the first row scoring my performance. Men's Physique had already become quite popular and my competition was no exception. I got to share the small stage with 13 people, all with great physiques. Unfortunately I didn't place in my first competition, but I learned a lot and got loads of great constructive feedback. It was back to the drawing board to make sure I looked even better for my next show.
