CBum rose to the heights of the Classic Physique arena with integrity and hard work. The bodybuilding icon known for his top conditioning overcame many setbacks to achieve his four Sandow trophies. He was introduced to the sport by his brother-in-law, Iain Valliere, and the latter trained him till CBum opted for Hany Rambod last year.

While not compromising on the training routine, CBum is also up to new things in life. In “The Truth Podcast with Hany Rambod,” the 28-year-old was asked by the coach, “I know you’ve trained with a lot of people, and you’re so strong, you keep up with a lot of open guys, but how did you feel, how was it with you and Hadi?” Replying to the question, the Classic Physique champion confessed, “I care a lot more about training with someone given who they are, like their character rather than just their status or physical ability.

Opening about his camaraderie with the reigning Mr. Olympia (Open category), CBum said, “Even before I met Hadi through you backstage, we don’t speak the same language…,” but cut short by Rambod, who in excitement revealed, “Yeah actually we’re teaching CBum Farsi.” Following this, CBum learned a couple of words in Farsi from Rambod before confessing Hadi to be “super kind.” While his Farsi training is still in the initial phase, CBum is focusing on his bodybuilding championship.
