Where it all started... Cain worked for Weider back in 1993, after leaving the Royal Air Force. He then had the role of Area Manager for Workout World, then the largest specialist health and fitness stores in Great Britain, for 5 years. It was whilst running the stores he embarked on a never-ending journey of education and applying that knowledge to great effect...and thus GB Fitness was born.
