Hi, I’m Scott Halliday – owner of Performance Fitness Gym.
I’ve always been keen on fitness and exercise and am a qualified Level 3 Personal Trainer. I also specialise in strength and conditioning, powerlifting & strongman. As a trainer, I have trained both many male and female Powerlifters/strongmen to British, European and World Success. I am passionate about what I do and the people I train, whether it be for weight loss, toning & sculpting or World class completion.
I Opened my own gym in 2012 – Performance Fitness, Eastbourne, this was a long-held ambition of mine. I’m excited and proud of our gym and hope you will enjoy using our facilities. Since 2000, I have regularly trained in a gym and competed in Strongman competitions – in 2003 I won the Team Sussex Strongest Man title.
I also love riding motorbikes and from 2004-2009 have raced in the British Motorcycle Racing Club National Championships – see www.bemsee.net + at the British Superbike weekend at Brands Hatch. I got married in 2007 to my wife Jo and we have 3 children. In 2010, I returned back to the gym and started training regularly, in 2012 I started competing in Powerlifting competitions. In that year I came second at the British Championships & won the Body Expo event at the Birmingham NEC. At the same competition I won the British Benchpress Title Championship (100kg weight class) and broke the British Benchpress record at the same time! In 2012 I also won the Hastings Strongest Man competition but my passion was leaning towards Powerlifting.
In 2013, I won the BPC, BPU & GPC British Championships 100kg Raw class. I was selected to represent team GB by both the BPU & the GPC. I went to the BPU World finals 2013 (Czech Republic) and came joint first in my class, and also went to the GPC European Championship in Hungary where I came fourth. I have now switched to Equipped lifting, and in June 2014, represented Team GB at the GPC European championships. I placed first in the 100kg weight category class and also came second in the overall Male category and finished third in the Absolute.
Along with owning my own gym and representing my country in Powerlifting, I was asked to be the Event Organiser for the GPC British Powerlifting Championship Finals in August 2014. Due to the tremendous success of the event, I was asked to host the GPC European Championship in June 2015. The event was held in Eastbourne and we had over 600 lifters from Great Britain and the rest of Europe competing.
