Matt is off to Miami to do battle with muscle men

A Brentwood personal trainer is off to Florida next week to compete in Musclemania Universe.

Fitness model Matt Buck, 28, a trainer at Fitness First at the Baytree Centre, will fly to Miami where the competition is being held.

Matt, who lives in Shenfield, faces stiff competition with 300 other fitness fanatics from around the globe.

He said: “This competion is more fitness modelling as opposed to bodybuilding.

“I’ve been training since I was 18, so for the past ten years really and, as gruelling as it is, it’s just become a way of life.”
