A cuppa with…..Perry

Perry Tully is a Men’s Physique (Bodybuilding) competitor from West London. As an athlete he started his career as an Olympic weightlifter and ran the London Marathon but then he turned to bodybuilding – specifically in the men’s physique sector. He started competing last year and was placed fifth in Miami Pro. He then took part in the Miami Pro Universe competition and came second in the over 75kg class.

What have been the proudest moments of your career history to date?

It gave me a real buzz to cross the finishing line of the London Marathon. That was a really big deal for me. But I also was pretty pleased to be placed second in only my fourth bodybuilding competition.

What are your fitness plans for this next year?

I plan to qualify for the British final, take part and win. So I’m going to be working hard on maintaining my diet and exercise regime.

Do you have you heart set on any particular goal for the future?

Long-term I want an IFBB pro card – which means you can compete in the United States for bigger money.

Which Deluxe product would you recommend to others and why?

I always use 100% Whey Protein – banana and raspberry ripple flavours. I use that as a base for my dietary routine and it works really well.

The Deluxe Scottish Instant oats are also one of my staples.


What do you value above anything else and why?

My friends are really important to me. They are all in the fitness industry which really helps. There is an attitude that we are all in it together and everyone helps everyone else. It’s like family.

Which person has influenced you most in your life?

My grandfather Derek has had the most influence on the person I am and the attitudes I have. We have same work ethic. I would love to tell you that he is my biggest fan but the truth is I’m not sure he really understands what I do or why I do it.

What’s the best advice you have ever been given?

There are two things my grandfather always says which stick with me. The first is: “If hard work is worth it, easy work is worth it.” The second is: “Eat the frog for breakfast.” This basically means: do the hard work first.

What is on your bucket list that you haven’t got round to doing yet?

I am already doing loads of things I wanted to do so I’m trying to enjoy those right now. But one thing I really want to do is to complete an Ultra marathon. That would really be a major achievement. One day I also want to settle down with someone and have a bunch of kids.

What is your perfect way to unwind on a weekend?

I like heading to the gym with my brother Joe Tully for a weekly training session. We work on our arms and it really helps get the stress out. He’s a bodybuilder so a lot bigger than me so we are not in direct competition. But we do encourage each other just to push a bit harder.

Not many people know this about me but….

I don’t like football. I’m the only guy I know who doesn’t follow a team and can’t sit still for a 90 minute match.
