Early life and background of Ryan Terry
Ryan grew up with an aptitude for sports, usually learning every sports activity in a matter of weeks. Since he was so good, he became used to winning and collecting several medals and diplomas while in elementary school. He didn’t like losing in any way, but there were some sports that mattered more to him, such as Football, Swimming, Gymnastics and Golf. Ryan first thought about practising fitness at the age of 13 when he saw people in the gym on his way home from training. Once he turned 15 years old, he acted on that thought and joined the local gym.
Fitness journey of Ryan Terry
Even with his talent for sports, Ryan never really felt confident in his own body. He started to visit the gym regularly with a wish to change his mindset alongside his body. Even though he wasn’t sure, he kept showing up and increased his workout plans until he started to see some results. Ryan got way stronger and worked his body to be leaner and more muscular. Although he managed to transform his body to unrecognizable, Ryan still felt quite self-conscious. But since Ryan wasn’t the type of man to run without a fight, he decided to face his problem. He started to look for bodybuilding or fitness competitions with the intention of joining in.
Ryan Terry as Mister International
At that time, Ryan was already out of school, working as a qualified plumber. Since he was good-looking and wanted to push his limits, he took a part-time modelling job. When he was 21 years old, Ryan signed up as a participant in the Mr Great Britain pageant. To his own surprise, Ryan walked out as a winner. Even though winning was an accomplishment in itself, Ryan earned himself a ticket to Indonesia, where he would represent Great Britain in the Mister International competition. Since it is very rare for Europeans to win these kinds of competitions, people just cheered for Ryan to place above half the contestants. But Ryan worked hard and surprised the whole fitness world when his face appeared on Indonesian billboards the next day. He became the first European to ever win the title of Mister International.
Once he came back to Britain, Ryan almost didn’t make time to pursue his plumbing job. His phone was ringing nonstop, presenting him with offers to represent fitness brands and collaborate with them. Only then Ryan realized that he might make a career as a professional bodybuilder and quit his job as a plumber. He started to work even harder, searching for the best workout plans and nutrition advice to keep him in the game. Ryan’s hard work paid off when he was named the UKBFF National Champion. The same year, Ryan attended the European Arnold Classic and earned the Classic Men’s Physique Champion title. At the peak of his career, Ryan decided to visit the United States in 2015 and compete against American bodybuilders. He attended the Mr Olympia official show and ranked at 4th place.
