About Gilbert

Gilbert's story is quite a special one. After escaping capture in his native Chad during the civil war, he settled in Nigeria in 1983 where he started weight training using home made concrete weights. A chance encounter with former French body building champion, Paul Pere in 1985 led to Gilbert's first competition in 1987 which he won, quickly followed by another win at the Grand Prix of Nantes in 1988.

By 1994 he was competing for Mr Universe, making the top 10 on his first attempt. From here he continued his ascension in the world of body building which climaxed by winning the British championship in 2004 and being selected to represent Britain in the European championships in 2005, finishing a respectable 5th.

Throughout his career as a pro body builder Gilbert has been helping to train others of all levels. He worked as a senior trainer at Muscleworks gym for 10 years followed by 6 years at Holmes Place. Since 2012 Gilbert has been training clients in his own space: Oxygen Fitness Universe.
