Craig Madden: After heavy influence from watching the famous Arnold films and WWE I have always wanted the perfect body, so I first joined a gym around the age of 19. However, I didn’t consider competitive bodybuilding until I was 32.
My first competition was the 2014 UKBFF North West bodybuilding show where I took home 2nd place. In 2015 I took 2nd again at the UKBFF North East bodybuilding show, it was that same year I won my first competition at the Mr Lancashire bodybuilding show and ever since I have been living the bodybuilding lifestyle and striving to improve year upon year. My aka name Blade was born from the condition I was getting myself into for the stage, ” cut to shreds” as they say!
It wasn’t until this year my true potential was met where I have won 4 competitions in a row. This includes firstly winning the Heavyweight class at The Welsh Open Bodybuilding Championship, Before I took home the Tall Class 1 champion and overall at the PCA North West and the IBFA Mr Derbyshire. Finally I won The IBFA Mr Britain Title in the Class 1 category and narrowly missed out on the overall Mr Britain coming runner up! which just makes my love for this sport grow stronger. It was a dream come true not only for myself, but my amazing partner and everyone close around me. After these competitions the support that come through from people was amazing, it took a while for everything to sink in!
I also offer online coaching for competition prep under my social media @Blade_online_coaching
