Tony Emmott Biography

Tony Emmott, a former postman who seamlessly transitioned into the realm of professional bodybuilding, hails from the picturesque town of Ilkley in West Yorkshire. Today, he calls California his home, marking the fascinating journey of a ‘Postman turned professional bodybuilder.’

In an interesting parallel, Art Zeller, a bodybuilder who found his second calling as a photographer, also possessed a postal background. He diligently served as a clerk at the post office in Santa Monica, shaping his unique path from ‘Bodybuilder turned photographer.’

Emmott’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to become the proprietor of the Olicana Health Studio, nestled in the heart of Ilkley, Yorkshire, UK. He expanded the gym’s horizons by introducing a health food restaurant, an endeavor he personally undertook. Interestingly, the legacy of Olicana Health Studio persists, now embodied in the form of Olicana Health Spa, situated at 25 Grove Promenade, Back Grove Road, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, LS29. While it is likely the same establishment under new ownership, the historic significance remains.

Tony Emmott’s charismatic presence graced the covers of esteemed publications such as Health and Strength, Muscle Training Illustrated, and Muscle World, reflecting his enduring influence and recognition in the world of bodybuilding.

  1. I attended Tony Emmott’s gym back in 1973-77 would you happen to have any old photos of the members training at that time?
