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.  :)


Leroy sounds like a total asshole.

could be an asshole or it could be that Leroy is just hard core. who cares really, the guy egged on Yates for some of his wins. and did it well.
"lets go to war"
"come on Yates"
"pulldowns"!
"business as usual"
"come on lad, push"
"squeeze it"

Dorian appeared to have overdeited somewhat and looked a little depleted in 1996 however as was the norm his conditioning was very very good
