Yep. Leroy Davis was the guy.

Apparently they're no longer friends. I used to train at Temple Gym and Leroy used to run the place as a manager during the day.

I saw him a few months back when I was on my way to work - he's working as a brickie now or at least he was last time I heard.

Got any stories form Temple Gym?

The story that I remember most was only my second ever workout in Temple Gym in September '96. I was a wet-behind-the-ears 19 year old and I had only been training for four years at that point but nothing too seriously. I had come up to Birmingham to study at university and I had never trained in a serious gym before - only my home gym that I had made up back on the farm from a plank of wood and two beer crates for a bench.

So anyway, I comes into Temple Gym and I had my bandanna on while I was doing smith machine squats (cos at the time I thought it made me look cool). Leroy came up to me after I'd finished my set and glared at me. I asked him what was up and he told me "you're not qualified to be doing that", and I said, "what?". He said "you're only qualified to be wearing that bandanna once you can squat five plates."
I said "oh, right" and took the bandanna off. There was a couple of the gym regulars sitting sniggering behind me and I felt like walking out. But I didn't. I came back and trained hard and kept myself to myself and after a while Lee could see that I wasn't just a "fan" who wanted to train at Temple Gym just cos Dorian was there.

I stayed at Temple Gym until 2005 and then moved out the area and trained somewhere else. By the time I left I had been able to squat five plates on the smith machine. Shame Leroy hadn't stuck around (he left in '97 after Dorian retired) but if he'd been there I would have worn the bandanna just to piss him off. He would've seen the funny side of it though as well.

Good times.  Smiley

They are friends now. I got both of the guys together when I shot Lewis Yates and Liam Davis training together when I flew over there at Christmas time. We sat in the Starbucks down the road and it was great to hear them both talk about old times. We then went to Temple which was the first time Leroy had been there for 7 years. He said the place looked very decent compared to back then  Smiley

Cool. I've been meaning to go back to Temple as it's only five minutes walk up the road from where I now work and I wouldn't mind training there again. Think it's about time I dusted off the ol' wraps and belt.  Smiley

Just got off the phone from Yates today. Simon Fan has been looking after Temple. Yates hasnt been there much over the past couple of week. He says he has moved into an area of Birmingham which is way too nice for him.
He will try to come to LA the week before the Olympia where he will be on the judging panel again

just imagine if dorian never got injured and could actually train the last 8 weeks out from a show - the most important time for some.

Good Point. ALso, Dorian has still held a respectable amt of size. Look at Kevin.   Not Diss'n Keven, Great BBer.

Leroy said to me that he believes that the bodybuilding world was robbed of what Yates could've become due to his injuries. His mind was too powerfull for a mortal physique.
