Personal trainer says he’s forced to park in parent-and-child bays because he’s too big for standard spaces

A PERSONAL trainer claims he is “too big” to fit in normal spaces – and has to park in parent-and-child bays instead.

Muscular Chris Goodwin, who is nicknamed The Greek Stallion, argued it wasn’t selfish and was his “only option”.

Appearing on the Channel 5 show Britain’s Parking Hell 2020, Chris argued he would hit other cars if he parked in normal spaces.

Speaking on the programme, the 20-stone PT said: “I’m a muscle-model champion. I’m a beast. Even if there are parking bays, I never bloody use them.

“I’ll just go and park in the same parent-and-child [bay], even if I’m on my own – I always do it.

“I don’t give a c**p what people think of me. I’ll do what I want. I can’t fit out of my car – I’m too big. I don’t think it is selfish, I really don’t.

“People take it way over the top because you’re parking in a bloody parent-and-child bay. They want to bloody fight you like Mike Tyson would.

“I still think anybody should be able to park there and that’s not being selfish. I think I should have my own bay saying, ‘The Greek Stallion’s Bay’.”

The personal trainer said bays needed to be wider to accommodate him.

Chris has already had run-ins over parking – last year confronted by a woman abusing him for using the spot reserved for busy parents.

But he argued he had been with his pregnant partner at the time and they both needed to be able to get out of the car.

He added: “When people are taking up lines in parking bays or using two spaces that’s annoying but if someone needs to use the parent-and-child bay they should be able to do it without any judgement.”

Personal Trainer Says He’s Forced To Park In Parent-And-Child Bays As He’s Too Big

Personal trainer too big to fit in parking spaceChannel 5

A personal trainer has said he’s forced to park his car in extra-wide parent-and-child bays because he’s too muscly to open the door and squeeze out in normal spaces. 

There’s no denying that working out is good for you, but Chris Goodwin, aka ‘The Greek Stallion’, is a prime example of how going to the gym has its downsides, too.

The 20-stone personal trainer recently appeared on the Channel 5 show Britain’s Parking Hell 2020, which details all the little daily battles faced by British drivers trying to park their vehicles.

Issues include private parking, council restrictions and fines, but Goodwin’s struggle isn’t down to finding open parking spaces. Rather, his biggest difficulty is finding parking spaces big enough for him.

Speaking on the programme, the gym-lover explained:

I’m a muscle-model champion. I’m a beast. Even if there are parking bays, I never bloody use them.

To avoid attempting to rearrange his limbs in order to escape his car, Goodwin has taken to parking in parent-and-child bays, which offer extra space to make it easier for parents to manoeuvre young children in and out of vehicles.

Parking in a parent-and-child space without a child could result in a fine, but the personal trainer is willing to take the risk.

He commented:

I’ll just go and park in the same parent-and-child [bay], even if I’m on my own – I always do it.

I don’t give a crap what people think of me. I’ll do what I want. I can’t fit out of my car – I’m too big. I don’t think it is selfish, I really don’t.

Goodwin admitted he’s received backlash for his decision, with frustrated members of the public trying to ‘fight [him] like Mike Tyson would’.

He was once met with a woman ‘shouting abuse’ at him for using the spot, but at the time he pointed out he and his pregnant partner both needed to fit out of the car, claiming they wouldn’t have been able to so in a normal spot.

Though not everyone agrees with him, Goodwin believes he has every right to park in the space.

The muscly man continued:

People take it way over the top because you’re parking in a bloody parent-and-child bay. I still think anybody should be able to park there and that’s not being selfish.

When people are taking up lines in parking bays or using two spaces that’s annoying but if someone needs to use the parent-and-child bay they should be able to do it without any judgement.

Massive and in shape BOOM!!!!! 💪

Posted by Greek Stallion TV on Friday, July 26, 2019

Goodwin believes he should have his very own parking bay, reserved as ‘The Greek Stallion’s Bay’. Though the spot might get some funny looks, at least it would leave the parent-and-child bay free for families, or perhaps even for other particularly muscly people.

Motley Crue: Personal Trainer + Nutritionist Working With Band

Motley Crue’s co-headlining tour with Def Leppard is looking to be one of 2020’s biggest events. The Crue seem to be pulling out all the stops, including “some of them” hiring a personal trainer and nutritionist to prepare for the summer shows.

Crue manager Allen Kovac recently spoke to Fox Business about the band’s reunion tour and The Dirt, claiming “tens of millions of people” saw the Netflix biopic.

“The most relevant statement is that global film, with a global internet and global streaming, is the future,” he says. “When I go to Amazon, I can see a Motley Crue book, I can see a Motley Crue documentary, I can see a Motley Crue live show, I can see the fact that they got a film, they got CDs out and they got streaming and they’re selling merchandise. So to me, managers and artists should move into 2020 and out of 1999, and so should record companies. You can’t make music in quarters. You can’t develop an artist in a quarter. It takes a couple of years, sometimes a lot more.”

Kovac also responded to recent criticism of singer Vince Neil, who became a meme with a viral performance of “Kickstart My Heart.” “Some of them are working with a trainer, some of them are working with a nutritionist to make themselves the best they can be,” Kovac claims.

Though the manager didn’t name which members were working with a nutritionist and trainer, Kovac added, “Let’s see what Vince sings like and looks like when the tour goes out.”

Nikki Sixx later added in a tweet, “A lot of people don’t understand to lose fat and gain muscle you need to eat more food mixed with the right kind of cardio and strength training. If you are starving your body is gonna hold onto fat and eat the muscle. I eat 2500 macro balanced calories a day. I eat all day.”

Motley Crue were one of Google’s Top 10 trending artist searches in 2019, while ‘The Stadium Tour’ with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett just set a local record for fastest stadium sellout.

Karma Hits Personal Trainer Who Fat-Shamed Woman On Social Media

Think twice before you mock someone online behind their back. A Singapore personal trainer is learning this lesson the hard way after trying to fat-shame a woman on Instagram.

Shah Cutler, who went by the username Supershah on Instagram, posted a photo of a woman buying ice cream. He added the caption,

“Wtf so fat still wanna ice cream?? Disgusting”


Yahoo Lifestyle / Instagram: Supershah

The post received a lot of criticism, especially because, as a personal trainer, Cutler should be more understanding of people’s bodies.

His place of business, Fitness First Singapore, was contacted about the tactless social media post.

The post reads:


“It has been brought to our attention that a recent post by a FF trainer on social media was found to have used insensitive statements towards a member of the public and we would like to apologise for any distress caused.

We have undertaken an internal investigation and suspended his duties till further notice. He has since publicly apologised for his behaviour through an Instagram post and understands the insensitivity of his comment.

We pride ourselves on the culture of our training and the professionalism of our teams. We view this matter seriously and wish to assure the public that we do not agree with the comment made by our employee nor condone such behaviour.

As the fitness leaders, we strive to provide a safe, welcoming and motivating environment for anyone who wishes to pursue a healthier, fitter lifestyle, regardless of their starting point.

We sincerely regret the incident.”

People were heated about this trainer’s comments.

After the backlash, Cutler posted a short-lived apology.

“I would like to sincerely apologise for my recent IG story post. I was too rash and understand the insensitive statement is uncalled for and offensive,” he wrote. “As a trainer, I’m deeply committed to my duty to help people achieve their health and fitness goals and I’ll continue to do so in more appropriate ways from now on.”

Cutler has since removed his social media accounts and personal website.

Fitness First has also publicly announced that he is suspended.

Many were grateful for the swift action.

This isn’t the first time body-shaming on social media has got someone in trouble. In 2016, former Playboy model Dani Mathers got in legal trouble for posting a secret, unflattering, nude photo of another gymgoer. She plead guilty in 2017 to the misdemeanor charge.
