He joined St Mary’s Kitende for the A level and later on joined the school of clinical Medicine and Community Health in Mbale where he obtained a Diploma.
He remembers how it all
started as a joke in body building. Little did he know it would take him this far.

The Body building career.

Isaac started the body building career way back in 2007. He went off for 2 good years to pursue a Diploma in Clinical medicine and Community Health in Mbale.After the course, he resumed the training and he was more determined and serious this time round. He looked at it as a real deal and by 2011, he had built enough body to help him win the Mr Jinja contest. But this wasn’t going to be enough for him. So it brought more challenge and called for hardwork.

6 years down the road, he looks at 2017 as a year of great tangible results in his career. First he contested in the Mr Kampala competitions early in May which he won. This still raised more challenges his way. It was time for him to work even harder. The Mr Uganda contests were just around the corner.
Soon came November and there we were but he still went against all odds to be crowned the champion.
