Eddie Hall's Career
Hall's career in body fitness dates back to his childhood. At the age of five, Hall was taught swimming by his mom, a swimming instructor at the time.
Around 10, Hall had won the National Swimming Championship and broken a lot of records in swimming. But soon, he began suffering from anxiety attacks and depression.
His mental health condition would prevent Hall from furthering his swimming career. However, after two years of mental health battles, his parent advised him to join a gym.
It would later turn out to be the best piece of advice they would give to their son. The environment of the gym shaped the man into a beast. In an exclusive interview with Daily Mirror, Hall is quoted saying,
The euphoric feeling the gym gave me became addictive.
