We caught up with the Strongest Man in the UK and proud family man, Eddie Hall, about having a few beers with Arnold Schwarzenegger, contracting meningitis and always being full!
From the moment I could consciously think I just wanted to be the best at whatever I did! At the time of school years I was a national champion swimmer and I wanted to be a pro and go for the Olympics!
The highest feeling I’ve felt during my strongman career is going to the World’s Strongest Man 2012 in L.A. and winning a couple of events felt good to prove to people I was strong, even at that level!
My lowest point of my career was when I contracted meningitis in late 2011 and I was seriously ill, had swelling/bleeding on the brain and could not train for months afterwards due to an enflamed spinal cord.
Live life to the fullest, as there’s only one thing that’s set in stone and that’s how much time we have here on earth.
I’d love to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger and just enjoy his company for a few beers. He’s one of life’s great characters, like myself!
My motivation is my family, I want my kids to grow up to be proud of their Dad, to have a life better than mine and also to learn from my mistakes.
With my family. If I’m not working, I’m at the gym, or eating, then I’m with them.
My best body part is my whole body. My only flaw is having little ears!
My life’s ambitions are to win the World’s Strongest Man and become another great in the history books.
The most famous person I’ve spent time with and had a laugh has got to be Colin Bryce, an ex-bobsleigh Olympian, ex British strongman finalist and commentator for the BBC/Channel 5!
Here’s my favourite picture because it sums up my whole purpose in life in one photo! See above!
