i trained next to Ernie once, in Paragon Gym, Kingswindford in the West Mids. this was back in 2004, he had placed well at the Olympia in 2002(i think) and it was just surreal. i got talking to him and he was really open and positive- saying that he couldn't believe i wasn't competing already. cheers Ernie- you helped push me to finally do it in 2008.

no mate, it was when a guy called Shaun owned it, he had bought it off his brother, who had bought it off Steve. Steve used to still come in and train occasionally though. 2004/2005. i try and drop by every year or so and say hello even though i don't get to train there. very set up for any bodybuilder tho, plenty weight/machine and good atmosphere in there,

cheers.

Cant remember what time frame my dad was there he was friends with steve p, miller, ernie taylor, micky ragg...

Linval Miller (sp)? yeah he was there when i was. some crazy potential, used to change so much, so quickly. never saw him compete, though i think he did.
