Carly Tierney at Fitness Superstore It was a day of fitness-fuelled entertainment at our Leeds store last Saturday as we were joined by Ms Bikini Tall Miami Pro 2014 Champion, Carly Tierney! With us for an action packed Supplements Sampling afternoon, we were treated to her insatiable energy and fitness expertise. Oh, and she brought along her champion’s medal for us all to gawp over, as she’d promised us! Inspirational fitness guru [caption id="attachment_508" align="alignnone" width="580"]Carly Tierney at Fitness Superstore Carly with Fitness Superstore's Leon (left) and Gavin[/caption] We already knew that Carly was inspirational, having won this year’s Ms Bikini Tall Miami Pro UK. Plus, we’ve seen the pictures! But it was something else to meet Carly herself. Not only does she look amazing with an indisputably incredible physique, but her positive, high–energy personality certainly rubs off on you! With a massive passion for fitness, Carly is a fully qualified Personal Trainer, Nutritionist and Pilates instructor so it was a real delight to have her with us to pass on her advice and knowledge to customers. What you might find surprising is that Carly only began weightlifting when she turned 30 and went on to win the Miami Pro just one year later at 31! Amazingly, Carly also has a full-time management job. Now to us, that just shows how much you can achieve when you put your mind to it. As well as offering free samples of excellent new sports nutrition ranges – including BSN pre-workout and protein powders – customers also got involved in our stamina challenges, with top prizes up for grabs. Stamina Challenges: Who brought their A Game? There was definitely a sense of competition in the air for our Stamina Challenges! We ran three contests, which tested how many chin-ups, push-ups and bicep curls you could do in one minute. All participants received BSN sports nutrition goodies for taking part, while the winners took away a BSN goodie bag including a t shirt, supplements and more. The results: Chin-up Challenge: Performed on the Body-Solid Functional Training Centre, the winning number was 15. Here's Carly showing us how it's done...
