#026 – Sonny Webster – From Zero To Rio: A Life’s Journey To The Olympic Games

Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or stream below.

Sonny Webster is an Olympic Weightlifter who represented Great Britain at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Sonny is one of the best known names in the world of strength and fitness in the UK. But before the hundreds of thousands of followers and seminar tours all over the world, he had to learn his craft. Today we get to hear his story.

From overcoming massive injuries as a child to leaving home at 16, having qualifying day catastrophes and no money to eat to walking out at the Olympic Opening Ceremony next to Andy Murray, we get to learn about his entire journey. Discover his pre-lift routine, his thoughts on CrossFit in the lifting community and why he’s endangering his life with a barbell almost daily in videos on Instagram.

This will be the first of many podcasts as there is a lot to go into about Sonny’s career and mindset, but for now, enjoy Chapter #1.
