ITV2 Bromans star Liam McAleese combines his childhood passion for sports and fitness with a successful modelling career. Liam is a popular face for retail giants JD Sports, BooHoo Man and River Island, and shares his numerous billboard campaigns on Instagram.
Despite having accrued an impressive and loyal following, Liam continues to work as an electrician in his hometown of Nottingham.
“Being an electrician and model/influencer at the same time means working extra long hours,” says Liam. “Both roles require a lot of physical work and travel- but I love what I do!
“Even though I work long hours, I always find the time to train and keep on top of my diet! I believe maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle is important. Having the right balance between work, family and training is essential to stay happy and enjoy life in general. A strong healthy mind will help you build a strong and healthy body.”
Liam first started training at the age of 18, when an injury put the brakes on his then football career.
“I knew that being tall and skinny was going to mean putting in extra hard work,” says Liam. “I visualised the physique I wanted. I set myself realistic goals, kept hungry and trained like a machine. I feel as if I’ve proven that achieving your body goals is possible no matter what your starting point, so long as you put your mind to it and give it your all. My motto is that "it’s you vs you." Ultimately, you can only be the best version of yourself.”
Liam has some solid advice for all the hard gainers out there.
“If you struggle to pack on muscle genetically, stay focused on your goals and dreams. Rome wasn't built in a day, so persevere, stay dedicated and you'll be over the moon with the results you achieve.
“I believe that no matter how successful you become, you should always stay humble.
“I am currently working towards making my weaknesses my strengths in the gym. Hopefully I’ll pack some more trophies into the cabinet in the coming months and keep landing big modelling campaigns.”
Liam’s commitment to CrazyBulk
“Being part of the CrazyBulk team is an absolute dream come true,” he says. “Not only are their products the best on the market, the team are incredible as well. We’re all there to support and bring out the best in one another!”
