Thomas Inch

"The Scarborough Hercules!"

The First Official "Britain's Strongest Man"

After becoming Britain’s Strongest Youth at 16, and Britain’s Strongest Man in 1910, Thomas Inch was aptly nicknamed “The Scarborough Hercules”.

While striking up a friendship with the The Attila Brothers and Arthur Saxon of The Arthur Saxon Trio, he set out to build a physical culture empire as large as that of the famous Eugen Sandow.

He talked with Arthur Saxon quite often and gained a great deal of practical knowledge regarding weight training methods.

His physical culture mail order empire, at the time, soon became the largest of its kind in the world.

As a matter of fact, it far exceeded his wildest dreams, surpassing even that of Sandow!

At one point he had over 120 employees on staff with over 50 typists distributing his bodybuilding courses of instruction and equipment all over Europe.

He traveled far and wide giving strength exhibitions and taking on all challengers including Edward Aston , William Caswell, etc.

The name Thomas Inch became synonymous with Overhead Lifts, his Challenge Dumbbell and Challenge Gripper.

Even though he promoted chest expanders and free exercises as part of his special training instruction, he always maintained that the lifting of heavy weights was far superior.
