Dok se oporavljao od jedne povrede dobio je mononukleozu i godinu nije smio ništa raditi. Ljekari su mu savjetovali da počne trenirati u teretani.
Ušao je u nju, zaljubio se i iz nje nikad više nije izašao. Počeo je svakodnevno trenirati i nevjerovatno se ojačao. Danas Ford ima 204 centimetra i 150 kilograma.
Dnevno troši i više od 50 evra na hranu, jer mora jesti svakog sata kako bi održao takvu mišićnu masu, kako je još prije pisao jedan od najčitanijih britanskih tabloida "The Sun", koji ga je nazvao najstrašnijim čovjekom na svijetu.
What people may not realise is that I suffered for almost 12 months when I was 20 with an eating disorder of a kind, I had a major breakdown due to a few issues I had going on at the time, and I didn’t know how to answer them or what to do. Then I found my therapy, the GYM. All my anger, my frustration, disappointment I could release !!! I found my safe place, and a place I could reset my mind daily to stay on track. My eating issues were a strange side effect of life, I seemed to of lost control, id never suffered before, but literally over night I found my self with this crazy illness. My point is, we all go through bad times, there is always options and light at the end. You just have to keep searching and never give up !!! I almost gave up last year again, when I fell ill, all year I’ve struggled to get back into the shape I once was, BUT I never gave up, and finally I’m coming back, fixing the issues and focused my thoughts on success NOT failure .... thoughts are a powerful thing, use them wisely 🙏🙏🙏 #mentalawareness #strength
