Scottish born Bodybuilding Champion Kerry Napier's achievements to date are nothing short of impressive; 2004 Scottish BNBF Middleweight Champion and in the same year he won the British BNBF Overall Championship thus turning professional. But if I told you he achieved all of these things whilst not eating certain foods since they could cause anaphylactic reactions (serious allergic reactions) you would probably agree his story is not only impressive, but inspirational.
Kerry spent the majority of his childhood in hospital, either being treated for some allergic reaction or being tested to discover what was wrong with him. At the age of 7 he was finally fully diagnosed and given medication so he could begin to live a relatively ‘normal life.' Always active he played most sports but it wasn't until 17 when Kerry got his first set of weights and began bodybuilding and then in 2004 he had built a body good enough to win British BNBF Title.
