What does it take to be Flex Lewis?

Welcome to East Coast Mecca Dropsets – a new spinoff series revealing extended and deleted scenes from our latest show – East Coast Mecca. We ended up shooting so much at The Bev Francis Powerhouse Gym that not all of it could make it into the episodes, but why keep it all to ourselves? We’re giving you an all-access inside look at everything that went down inside one of the best gyms in bodybuilding today – The East Coast Mecca.

Flex Lewis has just proven himself to again be the best 212 bodybuilding competitor out there with his 2015 Mr. Olympia win. But how did he become the standout champion bodybuilder we all know and love today? In this never before seen clip from East Coast Mecca Flex describes the deep rooted philosophies he takes into every single workout session he performs. While there may be no one special secret to greatness – getting inside the head of the current reigning 212 Olympia champ might be a good place to start.

James “Flex” Lewis is an IFBB-certified pro bodybuilder from Llanelli, Wales. He grew up participating in athletics and was a rugby player at his high school. The nickname “Flex” actually predated his involvement in bodybuilding; he was given it by his rugby teammates for his extraordinary flexibility and speed with the ball.

Lewis found that he enjoyed weight training and exercising the most and gradually phased out rugby in favor of bodybuilding. At age 16 he entered the Junior Mr. Wales where he placed 1st. He went pro in in 2007 at the British Nationals and has gone one to place first at several IFBB pro events.
