The following night Lee Priest hosted a bodybuilding seminar at Eddy’s gym, which is where I train, Xtreme Fitness. Training under Eddy and getting into bodybuilding was the main reason I began my own bodybuilding blog, http://www.shreddybrek.com. The seminar with Lee was more of a candid chat, lasting about 2 hours. For a guy who is so immensely intimidating (face tattoo’s, slabs of muscle, and just a general badass look), Lee was one of the friendliest and most approachable people within the fitness industry that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.
Lee’s Seminar at Xtreme Fitness was the last stop on his UK tour before returning home to Australia. I asked him if he would be competing in this year's Mr. Universe, and at the time he said he wasn’t sure. Regardless of if he does compete in this years Mr Universe, there is no doubt that Lee remains one of the worlds best bodybuilders, and role models for young lifters.
