Harry Aikines-Aryeetey

GB Olympic Sprinter / All-Round Beast

As the first Gymbook ambassador, we could not wish for a more inspirational athlete to partner with. Having represented Great Britain in several Olympic Games, Harry is among the world's elite sprinters. Training several hours every day to increase his speed, endurance and strength in preparation for Tokyo 2020.

Olympic Training

Harry's drive to become a professional sprinter was born while watching the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000. A few years later he set a world record by becoming the first athlete to win both the 100m and 200m gold medals at the World Youth Championships. Having been instructed by some of the worlds top Olympic trainers his Get explosive book features much of his own tried and tested training regime. For him, everything comes down to his mental attitude, the more you put in, the more you get out. And using that basis he has achieved success after success.
