Hi Anthony, thanks for taking the time to talk to us. For our readers, can you tell us who you are and what you do?
My name is Anthony Brooking, I’m a Personal Trainer and Online Coach.
How did you get in to Fitness and Personal Training?
I always enjoyed sport at school, and I enjoyed helping others, so when I finished school I did further PE at college, then a course in Personal Training.
What's been your most proud moment up to now?
It has to be when I entered my first fitness competition and got 5th place.
For a newcomer, what's a good place to start when you're looking at getting in to fitness and training?
I used to recommend buying fitness magazines and learning the basic knowledge that way, but nowadays a great place to start is on the Internet and social media. Find some athletes to aspire to, and learn basic nutrition and workouts.
Who inspired you when it comes to fitness and bodybuilding?
When I was starting out, I looked up to Arnie (Arnold Schwarzenegger) – a lot of us did! Now, I follow men’s physique athletes like Jason Poston and Jeremy Buendia.
What car are you currently driving?
I drive a BMW 1 Series at the moment.
If money was no object, what would be your perfect car?
It would have to be an Audi R8.
What do you look for in a car? What's a must-have feature for you?
I need to have Bluetooth. It’s handy for calls, but a must-have for my music.
Do you have any plans for your personal training in the future?
I hope to progress with social media to increase online awareness, and I’m aiming to have my own personal training studio one day.
