Rhinos Member of the Month

September 2017

 

I am absolutely delighted to announce that Daniel McCafferty is theRhino's Member of the Month for September 2017 

Dan has been a Rhino's member for over two and a half years, during which time he has made remarkable improvements going from a general gym user to a strong competitive bodybuilder, culminating in his most recent achievement, winning the IBFA Mr Lincolnshire Tall Athletic bodybuilding class beating six other quality competitors and receiving an invite to the IBFA British Finals. 

Dan's success is not down to good fortune, it is simply a true testamentof dedication, commitment and hard work.

The journey Dan has made over last couple of years, the improvements he has made and his dedication to the cause is quite incredible.

I'm sure that Dan wouldnt mind me saying that he doesn't have god given genetics but he makes up for that in abundance in the sheer effort, hard work and importantly willingness to learn and develop.
He is also one of few that sticks to a plan provided by his coach 
Brandon, proving if you do results will come.

Many others could learn a lot from his work ethic and determination. 

Special mention to his mate and gym buddy Chris Grint for the support and motivation he has given Dan. 

Dan is also a great advocate and ambassador for Rhino's and a genuinely nice guy, even if he does 'grunt' a little on leg day.

Please join me in congratulating Dan and wish him more success in thefuture.

I am delighted to announce Nathan Willimer as Rhino's member of the month for August 2017.

 

He is a long serving member who has made great progress.

 

Nathan's passion and focus is on Strongman training and entering Strongman competitions

 

He has taken part in four competitions to date :-
The first being the Rhino's Strongman, followed by Peterborough's Strongest Viking.

 

The massive BodyPower Strongman comp where he came a very credible 35 out of 85 and the East of England strongest novice coming 13 out of 34

Nathan is currently training hard for next years comps where he plans to move up from the Novices to the Inters. 

What impresses me about Nathan is his constant progression and self development, often beating personal bests and training in a very structured way to resolve his areas for improvement, something he has had great success doing. 

He has also donated items of equipment to the gym and is just an all round genuinely nice guy !

Gareth "Taff" Williams
and 
Lee "Mac" McCullough

Both Taff & Mac are established members and train very regularly and intensely.

In the summer of last year they both decided to embark on a big challenge for charity. 

They both decided to compete in the Rhino's Classic Bodybuilding show ! 

Neither having competed before this was a big ask, but both the lads stuck to the task with grit and determination, never moaning once duringthe whole of the twenty week competition preparation.

Taff competed in both the Novice & Classic categories and Mac in thePhysique category 

The results they both brought to the stage were simply outstanding, dropping tens of kilos of body fat, and looking the real deal on stage. Both achieving the best condition of their lives and a credit to natural bodybuilders.
At the same time they raised over £500 for the charity "Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association"

On top of that they are both genuinely nice guys , who support the gym and partake in a bit of friendly gym banter.

Please join me in congratulating them both on this great achievement.

October 2016

 

It gives me great pleasure to announce Mark Bennett as member of the month for October. 

Mark has had an incredible year, competing in his first ever bodybuilding competition, where he placed third in an incredibly tough Junior line up and gave a great account of himself in the Classic category, one of thetoughest classes of the day. 

Mark underwent a 16 week competition prep and brought to the stage one of the best conditioned physiques out of the 55 athletes on stage (see transformation picture below) 

There were many other worthy contenders for the award this month with so many Rhino's members excelling at the Classic, which makes Mark's achievement even greater. 

So what set Mark apart ? He basically stuck to the plan without question and through the real tough times never moaned or complained !

He has also worked hard on his areas of weakness and developed these, namely legs and now has a decent set of wheels. 
He also worked extremely hard on his posing. 

Mark won't mind me saying, that he has proved a number of people wrong and showed a great deal of grit and determination to step on stage and exceed expectations. 

Mark, also helps at the gym at the end of each shift, tidying the gym and putting weights away. 

Please join me in congratulating Mark on this award.
