Bodybuilder Neil Currey Died: Bodybuilding World Mourns Sudden Death of Rising Star at 34

The bodybuilding community is reeling from the devastating and untimely loss of rising star athlete Neil Currey Died at the age of just 34.

Currey, an IFBB Classic Physique professional, was considered one of the UK’s top bodybuilding prospects and had quickly risen up the ranks after turning pro in 2018. His unexpected death has sent shockwaves through the bodybuilding world and prompted an outpouring of tributes from fans and colleagues.

Born in England, Currey found his passion for fitness and bodybuilding in his teens. He started intensive training and nutrition regimes in order to sculpt his physique and gain the muscle mass required for competition.

After achieving success in amateur competitions, Currey turned pro in 2018 after winning first place in his class at the NCP Worldwide Amateur Olympia in Italy. This allowed him to compete against the highest level of Classic Physique bodybuilders on the professional circuit.

Rest in peace, bud 🙏 Went numb tonight following the news that Neil had passed. He was my coach for 3 years, got me into bodybuilding, and learned me so much. He taught me how to coach, about nutrition about training. But more than that, he was a really good friend to me, treated me with so much respect, and was there for me when i needed someone to talk to. He lit a fire in me that’s hard to describe.

I remember going over to stay with him for a few days, i trained with him in ultraflex and after this picture was taken and seeing his reaction i got into the car absolutely buzzing. He rang me straight away and the whole way back to the bnb he talked about my potential, how he knows im not a bluffer, about what i can do to improve, the belief he has in me as a bodybuilder and hearing that from your idol is something il treasure for a long time.

He always made me a priority and i always wanted to be his top client. I’ll never forget how it felt to make you proud winning them shows, some of the words you said and some of the conversations we had.

To we meet again bigman. Thank you for everything ❤️

I’m utterly disgusted at some of the ignorant and insensitive comments I’m seeing on IG under posts reporting the death of UK Classic Physique Pro Neil Currey today at only 34 years old. Neil tragically took his own life, yet still many people, most of them cowards posting under anonymous ’troll’ accounts, are making snide remarks about steroids and some even sound happy that this man is dead. They should all be deeply ashamed of themselves.

While the bodybuilding world celebrates all Currey accomplished in such a short period, his loss also serves as a sobering reminder of the intense pressures pro athletes face. The human toll goes far beyond just physical stress.

At only 34, Neil Currey appeared to have the brightest of futures in the sport he loved. Though he can never fulfil that immense potential now, Currey’s impressive run and unwavering work ethic serve as inspiration for aspiring athletes everywhere. His legacy will fuel future generations to chase their bodybuilding dreams.
