Personal trainer and online coach Daire Curley is the WBFF European Pro champion in the Fitness Model category. Here he is lensed by renowned fitness photographer Gilles Crofta.
I’ve only been in the industry for a year or so! Beforehand when I trained I was literally just doing bicep curls and training legs — I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing. By the time I reached 19, a lad I knew who competed in men’s physique said I should give it a go competitively. I’ve always had good legs but didn’t really want to do men’s physique, so I looked at fitness modelling. The problem is there weren’t any competitions with fitness modelling categories in Ireland, so I had to come over to the UK to compete.
