y name is Duncan Bannatyne and I was born 2 February 1949 in Clydebank, Scotland. My business interests include Health Clubs, Hotels, Media, TV, Stage Schools, Property and Transport. I am most famous for my appearances as a business angel on the BBC programme Dragons' Den.
Luke Carson is Ireland's #1 Artistic Gymnast. At just 23 years of age, he had already represented Northern Ireland in the Commonwealth Games, and Ireland at world level.
He just missed out on the London 2012 Olympic Games due to suffering a leg injury in qualification. Born in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, Luke is also keen to become a fitness model while training for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow 2014, and the Olympic Games in Rio 2016.
He aims to compete and win medals in both events, alongside his sister Bethany, Irish Olympic team swimming star.
May I start by saying how excited I am to be associated with such a dynamic, forward-thinking and responsive brand!
People see athletes like myself and take it for granted that we each time the Postman comes to the door that it's another delivery of products. That may be the case for some - but they are the few. So when a brand like Machine Fitness takes note of where one is in their career, and invests in where one intends to be, it makes life on the long journey to success that a little bit easier. So, here I am. Excited and finally decked in cool training and lifestyle wear that will be the envy of even my gym pal, Team GB gold medal winner in London, Louis Smith.
I should have been in London alongside Louis but injury ruined my dream of competing in the Games last summer. As a result, I didn't watch the Games and I still haven't watched them. Indeed, I feel physically sick when I see reference to them on TV or in the media. It hurt so bad. When I returned to Huntington in January 2013, it was with a renewed determination to scream out loud that Luke Carson was on his way. My goals are set and I am on the road to hauling them in. 2013 is a massive year for me. The qualification cycle to Rio 2016 has begun and I aim to make my breakthrough this year, and at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next year. I am stronger and fitter than I ever have been - and there are no words to describe the intense determination I have inside to make all the years of dedication return rewards. My association with Machine Fitness is an award already, and I have no doubt more will follow with the achievement of my goals.
I am looking forward to blogging with Machine Fitness and hope you drop by the website each time I get something off my chest - like a Machine Fitness shirt after a gruelling session!

The Bio Shaker retails for $150 to $250, depending on the retailer. The official website does not appear to sell the product, but it does provide a product description.
List of Ingredients
Vibration machine by Sunny Health and Fitness.
According to the product description for the Bio Shaker, the vibration machine increases circulation and movement of joints. The company also claims the machine will improve fitness levels, though we are not sold on this claim. Firm, toned muscles are not likely to result from resting feet on a vibrating platform.
The machine spans measures 25 inches by 20 inches and holds up to 250 pounds. The user can rest feet on the platform in a seated position, or stand on the platform for total body vibration. There is no frame sold with the Bio Shaker, so the user should position the platform next to a counter top or desk for support if balance is a problem.
The machine comes with variable settings and a remote control, but there is no information on how to use the platform in the official description. We assume the company sends a user’s guide with the order, but that is not mentioned.
We found one consumer complaint that claimed the Bio Shaker caused a serious ligament injury. While the complaint is not substantiated, users should be cautious
I have written 7 books; Anyone Can Do It sold more than 200,000 copies; Wake Up and Change Your Life quickly entered the Sunday Telegraph top selling books list, as did How to be Smart with Your Money. My fourth book, How to be Smart with Your Time, provides practical advice on making the best use of your most valuable asset, and my most recent book, 43 Mistakes Businesses Make, explains how to avoid those costly mistakes that can waste time, cause embarrassment or even endanger the future of a business.
Born in 1949 in the town of Clydebank, I was raised in relatively modest circumstances. I was told by my mother that she could not afford to buy me a bicycle, so I asked the local newsagents if I could start a paper round; told I would need a list of 100 potential customers, I painstakingly knocked on many doors and eventually drew up a list of 100 names and addresses. I got the job, bought a bike and never looked back.
In 1964, at the age of 15, I volunteered for 12 years with the Royal Navy as a junior 2nd class engineering mechanic stoker at RNTE Shotley near Ipswich. I served in the Navy for several years before receiving a dishonourable discharge for threatening to throw an officer off a boat landing jetty in Scotland.
In my biography, I explain the incident; it was in part a reaction to this officer's abuse of his authority, in part a dare by his shipmates and in part a way of getting out of the Navy, with which I had become disillusioned. Afterwards, I had to serve nine months in the tough Colchester military detention centre before being discharged aged 20.
In my twenties, I moved to Jersey, where I met my first wife, and then to Stockton-on-Tees in the North East. It was there that my business career began, with an ice cream van bought for £450; I soon expanded by buying more vans and eventually sold the business for £28,000, founding a care home business instead. Quality Care Homes was sold for £26 million in 1996 and another business, children's nursery chain Just Learning, for £22 million.
