Lloyd Stewart 'Lloydie' – Sheffield Bodybuilding Legend

Lloyd Stewart has been part of Sheffield’s boxing, bodybuilding and gym community since the 1960s and is well-known and respected for his fitness, success and mentoring of others.

He began training as a boxer, moving from amateur to professional status as a light heavyweight. He retired from boxing after an injury, but kept on training and started a new career as a natural bodybuilder in his late 30s. Lloyd won the first competition he entered and has since competed in regional, national, European and international competitions. His achievements include the ANB Yorkshire title, the UIBBN European title in 2013 and the NPA British Champion title in 2016.

A display in Weston Park Museum showcases Lloyd Stewart’s accomplishments through photographs, trophies, programmes, personal items from his archive, and this short documentary (below) about natural bodybuilding featuring Lloyd and his friends.
