Carrying the title of UK’s Fittest Man 2020, Zack George is pretty much synonymous with functional fitness. At the weekend Zack competed at the 2021 Madrid Championships  an event that sees functional fitness athletes take on grueling events, spanning across three days. 

Zack did not disappoint. 

He finished with an event win and claimed second place overall.

We caught up with Zack to hear a bit about the weekend. 

“I absolutely loved the Madrid championships, after the injury earlier this season it was nice to test my body against the best in the world. As an athlete I think you can only be truly happy with 1st place, but I am still pleased with how I performed. Second place against the top in the sport is a good result. I always come away from competitions with lessons learnt and I’m looking forward to pushing myself again in Dubai (December) and Miami (January).”

Zack George is far from done. Let’s hope he has some time to put his feet up before doing it all again in December and January.

With experience in lifestyle writing, Emily aims to entertain and educate through her work. Her focuses include recipes, real and inspiring stories, and working with writers to help provide easy-to-digest evidence-based research. Her work on recipes has been previously featured in The Supplement magazine, with a particular focus on high-protein, nutritious meals, plus advice on how to properly fuel your body. Outside of work, Emily’s top priority is food. She’s a self-professed star baker and a connoisseur of all things baked. In her spare time, she’s either cooking up a storm, our looking out for the opportunity to try out Manchester’s newest restaurants. But as a huge fan of carbs, if it’s not pasta or pasta-adjacent, she’s not interested. If she’s not in the kitchen, she’s tucked up with a book for an early night, or you’ll find her in the gym working up a sweat. Afterall, all those carbs require quite the appetite.
