‘Postman turned professional bodybuilder’ Tony Emmott is from Ilkley, West Yorkshire and currently resides in California. ‘Bodybuilder turned photographer’ Art Zeller also had a postal backgound, working as a clerk at the post office in Santa Monica.
Emmott owned Olicana Health Studio in Ilkley, Yorkshire, UK, a gym with a health food restaurant extension added by none other than Emmott himself. There is currently an Olicana Health Spa located at 25 Grove Pomenade, Back Grove Road, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, LS29 which is likely the same gym under new ownership.
Health and Strength, Muscle Training Illustrated, and Muscle World were among the magazines whose covers Emmott appeared.
